    Since there's hardly any rest for the wicked . . .

    PH03: Happy Little Wonderland (TM)

    This game is inspired by Rex's off-hand comment, many moons ago.

    Basically, we must win by Culture, and all our cities must have at least ONE wonder in them.

    Leader: Random (to be determined by dice-roll, not RNG)
    Opponents: 6 Random (by dice-roll as well)
    Difficulty: Monarch
    Map: Continents
    Size: Large
    Speed: Normal
    Victory Conditions: All enabled, but we must win by Cultural.

    Variant Rules:
    * Each city must have at least ONE World Wonder built in them

    Roster:
    01 Pholkhero
    02 Imhotep
    03 Zophos
    04 Ozbenno
    05 Rex

    Alternates:
    01 Robo Kai
    02 Xtream

    Preference given to those who sign up :D

    Of course you're in ~ when i say you lurking on the board here, i was counting how long it would be until you posted.

    a little more than 10 mins? not bad.

    I'm new to most of the conditions in this game...

    Played 2-3 Warlords games so far, none to completion yet (just testing the new stuff). Comfortable at Prince, haven't moved to Monarch yet. Mostly Epic/Fractal/Standard, with various civs, but tending to Financial. Have never gone for Cultural Victory, and this would be my first SG. :)

    ...but I'm interested, if you'll have me. I can only play evenings (Central Time, US), but I lurk the boards off and on most days.

    If not, happy to lurk or take an alternate slot. It'll be a learning experience either way, and I've loved following your other SGs.

    I've now got Warlords and need an excuse to play it if you'll have me!

    Can we use Rex's dice for the leader roll?

    You're in!

    @ Rex, what's the site for your dirty dice? Are you going to sign up or what??

    @ Robo ~ i have you listed as an alternate ~

    will roll up a start as soon as I receive a dice location. If not by midnight est, then i'll use regular dice :(

    Arm sufficiently twisted. And for the lazy researcher (you work at a university for the love of Ringo) my dice site is up your beagle.

    If it's warlords you can sign me up for that. I'm a religious nut anyway and I have time for another SG.

    Welcome to all ~

    @ Rex ~ that's a crazy roller. i've never actually used that before, despite its popularity in RNGod.

    @ Robo ~ "page is currently diasbled"

    i'm nuerotic about randomness anyway and prefer hand-rolled dice :crazyeye: strange, i know :)

    So, the results are:
    Catherine of Russia: Creative & Imperialistic

    Our Opponents:
    01 Kublai Khan
    02 Cyrus
    03 Brennus
    04 Tokugawa
    05 Hannibal
    06 Churchill

    Catherine was someone i had in mind, and got her on the 2nd roll (first was Gandhi :) of course it was). start coming in a bit.
