    Headed by regular co-hosts Daniel "DanQ" Quick, "Makahlua", Philip "TheMeInTeam" Bellew and Lisa "qnl" Bang, PolyCast is approaching the conclusion to its fifth season. On December 10th, 2011, they will record their annual Christmas Special live, as have been all episode recordings this calendar year. However, they are need of questions to answer, comments to reflect on and topics to investigate to drive this celebratory broadcast's content: Civ in nature, strategy/computer gaming in general or even PolyCast specific inquiries are all welcome... you are not limited to just one!

    To submit your questions, comments or topics for this purpose in advance, do one of the following:

    a) respond accordingly to this thread;
    b) send an email to thepolycast@gmail.com;
    c) leave a voicemail for free by using Skype to call the show; or
    d) leave a voicemail by using your telephone to call the show's United States-based number -- (301) 637-7659 -- or United Kingdom-based number: +44 121 288 7659.

    In addition, the PolyCast team will also take them live during the recording of the 2011 Christmas Special in the chat room powered by uStream. Help the show's regular co-hosts prepare for this event by submitting your inquiries in advance. PolyCast is a bi-weekly audio production in an ongoing effort to give the Civ community an interactive voice on game strategy; sibling show RevCast focuses on Civilization: Revolution, ModCast on Civ modding and TurnCast on Civ multiplay.

    The recording of this special is but one week from today -- the sooner any questions, comments, topics or combination thereof are posted in reply before then, the greater the chance that they will be discussed.

    Here's a question that applies to both Civ4 and Civ5:

    -- Have you ever abandoned a game due to an overly generous reward from a goody hut, e.g. popping Bronze Working and BFC copper on Turn 1?


    I'd also like to request the catchy tune "The Santa Clause Rock" that was featured in the 2009 Christmas Special: 'Tis the Time for Civving (played at 16'41'').

    Happy Holidays!

    Thanks for the question :) -- noted.

    Ah yes, I recall that tune -- appreciate the time stamp reference too. I'll see what I can do.

    And to you.

    :lol:

    Thanks to all those who submitted questions here and on other major English-speaking Civ fansites, as well as on the 2K forums. This special was recorded earlier today and will be released in two weeks' time, Christmas Eve, as per show tradition.

    :)
