    Lets see which is the most popular civ.

    Once voted, feel free to post your reasons for this too.

    Should make some interesting reading :)

    I've just started using Mongols, I find taking the barb villages as a city for me at the start to be extremely useful for generating an early multi-city civ.

    I haven't played yet but I picked the Zulu because they look the most appealing to me :)

    Egypt as thats who I played most with in the demo
    I did not rate them until i realised just how valuable the +1 food and trade on desert tiles was :D
    Quite like the mongols although would rather recieve settlers instead of cities from defeatd barbarian camps (camps always seem to be on a resource tile)

    Strangely a fairly even spread. Seems everyone has their own favourite. I would have expected a couple of stand-out leaders in this vote.

    I've only played through as the Mongols so far, but I chose them for there ability to convert barbarian villages to your own city and it's a great trait for early expansion, though they often arn't ideally placed. SO I guess I'll vote Mongols. :)

    That's who I voted for, for the same reason. Though I have to say, having played a few games as the Mongols now, the conversion of Barbarian villages to cities of my own isn't actually as good a perk as I thought it would be. Once I've taken 4 or 5 barbs so have 5 or 6 cities, I start to get really confused about which one I should be doing what with. That takes some serious planning, and in MP I simply don't get the time for that.

    Yeah, wonder why that is? Strange as well there have been so many views of this thread, but only 25 votes, suppose they're all guest viewers.

    Well I've viewed this thread myself like 10 times because I keep checking to see if someone else votes the Zulu. Nobody yet.

    I find it strange how the Americans are running this vote. Is that national pride/patriotism? They're not that great, though the great person bonus at the start can be very helpful, depending on who you get.

    I don't know, the Americans look pretty powerful to me, starting with a great person and a ridiculous production bonus at the end.

    Still very interesting to see such a wide spread of voting, there is actually no clear favourite civ at all. They've all had votes, and some the voting in very close with 4 civs tied for top spot with 7 votes. They do all have different perks, some more helpful than others I suppose, just very interesting I think :)
