    I would absolutely love to do this, but I cannot commit to playing once a day :( . I didn't even get one minute to play Civ yesterday, and I really wanted to finish the BOTM before it gets to be old news... if only I could play Civ at work...

    We're doing the demogame a little differently this time, maybe you should hang around and give it a try. :)

    I'm currently pretty busy, but in about a week, I will see if I can get my BTS working properly. If I can, I'd like to join this :)

    Depending on how many are interested, relaxing it to 36 or even 48 hours might also be ok. Mainly don't want to develop "silent withdrawl" syndrome where suddenly every turn is going the whole clock due to an absent player. :)

    Just a question, to play pitboss do you need to have the internet connected to the computer you are playing civ off, or can you do it like emailed games?

    I think the main issue here is map script choice. Always helpful...

    I'll play for sure- would prefer if the turn time was just 24 hours though- any longer and your just asking for people to get bored with the game.

    Code:
    Preferred Maps                         Other Interesting/Fair Maps
    --------------                          --------------------------
    Hemispheres                                    Tilted Axis
    Inland Sea                                     Ice Age
    Terra                                          Big and Small
    Continents                                     Wheel
    Islands                                        Hub
    Pangaea                                        Ring
    Archipelago
    Medium and Small
    
    Less desirable maps
    -------------------
    Fractal (resource/land distribution could be a major problem)
    Shuffle (see Fractal)
    Great Plains (uneven starting positions)
    Balanced (too predictable)
    Highlands/Global Highlands (too many hills and peaks)
    Team Battleground/Mirror (too uniform, we're not playing teams)
    Maze(contrived, movement difficulties)
    
    Special Maps
    -------------
    Lakes
    Rainforest
    Arboria
    Fantasy Realm (terrain is really screwy)
    Boreal (lots of tundra forest)
    Oasis
    Donut
    I've managed to create 4 lists of the maps and narrowed my preferences to about 8 different scripts. Even though Fractal isn't in that list, I'll still play it if enough people want it.
