    The PolyCast (PC) 2007 Christmas Special has arrived entitled "Girls Playing Civ" (89m59s). It's an all-female panel led by 'Makahlua' with first-time guests 'Cartimandua', 'KMadCandy' and 'Nolan'. :queen:

    As the show's Christmas edition, it's 50% longer than your standard episode! As the four play into the stereotype that women hop topics every few minutes, the combination allows them to discuss dozens of topics on the venerable Civilization series series.

    Topics are:


    05m57s: Getting into Civilization
    10m50s: Engaging in Multiplayer
    15m35s: Playstyles
    21m26s: City Naming
    26m57s: Difficulty Levels
    30m41s: Interest in History

    33m29s: In-Game Signs
    37m35s: Most Powerful Unit
    40m16s: Playing Morally
    42m33s: On Random Events
    44m06s: Pre-War Strategies
    46m08s: Favourite Civics
    50m27s: Most Useless Unit
    51m45s: Units in General
    53m47s: Technology Routes
    56m34s: Restarting a Map
    58m01s: Favourite Map Types
    60m32s: Naval Warfare
    66m35s: Diplogaming

    68m21s: Random Leaders
    71m03s: Saving Your Games
    75m54s: The Modding Front
    77m37s: On Civilization: Revolution
    80m03s: Civilization V Wishlist
    81m54s: History Lessons


    Enjoy! Feedback is welcome and encouraged. :yeah:

    You can only listen it :(

    Listening girls talking about civ :goodjob:

    "Tries to be one not to giggle" :lol:

    "He's got really pretty color too!" :goodjob:

    Btw, it's very disturbing to watch Cow & Chicken and King of the Hill on mute while listening this (not to meant as an offence in any way :))

    "Which Caesar?" :lol:

    Great - Kmad is doing good. That giggle is becoming legendary!

    Great quotes:
    "...and then I ask Hubby: I just founded a city, guess what resources it has?"
    "Pigs and iron...?"
    "I got pig iron! I got pig iron! I GOT ALL PIG IRON!"

    "sometimes, not very often, I name all of my cities after candy :blush:"

    "For me an early war is around steel"

    "I can lose on all difficulty levels"

    that is a fully legitimate question! there were two caesars in history you know ... julius and gus. i get the feeling gus was easier to get along with.

    we had way too much fun doing it! :) the older episodes are fun ... especially where DanQ gets details of the game wrong :p. he used to play on pre-settler level, but he's actually learning. he was a noob but he's not a permanoob - only some of us get that distinction.

    it's true! not even "gonna be", it's already up there. i'm kind of afraid to listen to it. it was a blast to tape it but i said so many dorky things! anyone who's read at least 7 of my posts knows i'm not above admitting embarrassing things, of course, and that i'm completely silly. but i dunno, this might be too much *giggle*.

    I fixed it for you. Caesar is the Roman equivalent of Pharaoh. :dubious: :stupid:
    OT: anyone ever notice how few people use :stupid:?

    how many pharaohs were there? i've heard of King Tut, i even saw his stuff! but i can't think of Pharaoh Anybody. :confused: so caesar is the roman equivalent of a word that i don't know what it means. very useful, thanks!

    ;) *giggle*
    Spoiler :
    actually i thought it was kind of generic, but i wasn't sure. so i asked hubby before posting, he said yup. so then i posted that, to be extra silly. but i actually wasn't 100% sure, i am truly that bad about history. i bet dan didn't edit the show enough to make me look actually smart about history or geography. even he can't do the impossible! *giggle*

    Both Ramesses II and Hatshepsut styled themselves Pharaoh, for a start, as did Tutankhamun. The word is most commonly used as a synonym for "king", and Hatshepsut actually dressed as a man to legitimize her claim to the title.

    "Caesar" just went on to mean "emperor" - actually, the word for emperor in several European languages evolved from the word "Caesar".

    The polycast was great fun, as always. It's always interesting to find out what the different people behind the handles and avatars around these forums actually sound like.

    Thank you kindly. :cooool:

    :)

    I wasn't the only one. :p

    :lol:

    :lol: -- we're our harshest critic!

    Poor KMad... ;)

    Welcome! Hope you'll follow-up when you've had a listen.

    What an unexpected turn in the comments... ;)

    The format for this episode was atypical and its panel not a regular composite. Still, scheduling permitting one or more of the first-time guests here may return for another episode or more come the New Year. :)

    :)

    :p:lol:

    :smug:

    I effectively listened to this episode some times more still before it was even released :mischief: and it does have replay value. :yup:

    :beer:
