1. Brazil - think that I'll like the UI very much. Stopped playing culture games because rationalism is so strong, but now I will probably start playing culture again. Exciting! Though I can imagine that I will struggle to get much use out of the pracinhas. 2. Poland - Love social policies! Don't think the UB or UU is very exciting, but the UA suits me perfectly. 3. Portugal - I like gold. And the feitoria might come perfect for some happiness boost! The nau seems cool too. And it makes you gold! Im often a bit slow with exploring the seas since I always make other priorities, but Nau will pay you back your investment quickly and you'll do it actively. Passive bonuses are almost always boring. 4. Indonesia - Never play Archipelago maps, but now I will try it. Will the unique luxuries increase the profit from your trade routes in those cities? I think the Candi will be exciting to try out. I rarely build gardens otherwise. The Kris will be useless though as I always ignore that tech... 5. Shoshone - I think I'll have to play them first before I know if I'll like them. Think they will be great to go both tall and wide, my only worry is that they might be boring for most of the game. I think the Comanche rider will probably not use a movement point to attack or even gain some to quickly disappear. Only speculation, but if true, I think it could be a fun unit! 6. Zulu - CiV is my first game in the civ series so I've never experienced an Impi rush Though I'm not a warmonger I think I'll like the Impi. The UB seems OK. The UA will encourage to spam units which I never do so might be fun to try. Otherwise, the XP part seems like the strong part of it for me. 7. Morocco - I like the UA. Gold and especially culture is fun. The colour scheme is awful though and so is their UI unless I misread completely. A kasbah worked by a non petra city is like an unimproved plains tile next to a river in G&K. I'd never work one of those... And with that being said, I would probably only get the fun double combat bonus in one city with the UU... and in non-desert tiles i would probably take the Comanche rider any day. 8. Assyria - I'm no warmonger. I like teching fast, so I would have no benefit from the UA. When I do go to war I usually do it a bit later, with x-bows or artillery. I'm afraid I will rarely use the siege tower. The UB seems OK, but wouldn't you rather put a GW in something that yield culture and tourism instead? Very unexciting. 9. Venice - Will probably be playing them once or twice but otherwise I'm a tall player that likes to find the ideal spot for a city. Instead I'll be watching Hiawatha place cities everywhere. Ranging from not in the most ideal location to useless locations. But I wouldnt be able to annex the nice ones anyways and it would be set on gold focus. To be in a position where you have to rely on the AI.. urk Usually doesnt build galleass, but it seems OK and I think I'll like them with Venice since they get a coastal bias. MoV though doesn't excite very much. A very restrictive civ, but it's definitely hypercube!
