Hey, The principle of a Potluck (R)-(Realms Beyond) is really simple - and I'm amazed no one has started a thread to host one. Potluck means the same map for everyone, same Civs on the map, same starting locations for each Civ. One thing - you get a start with one of them at random. The goal of this game is to compare our moves given the same environment and different starting position. I think it's a nice, educational way to get to know the newest Firaxis child. It's not a Succession Game, as every one plays his own hand. Reporting is encouraged, at least at some pre-defined moments in time - 0AD, 1500AD, 1800AD if still on, and at the end. Random civ of course, you won't know who you play until you start the save... Emperor difficulty, however I may change it to King or Immortal if people are more interested in those difficulties. So, who is interested ?
