    Tomorrow!

    Let's play if we can get 4 people. I'm in GMT-5 and flexible that day. I would prefer to play for 6 hours or more. 800 BC or 600 AD start.

    I'm in GMT-5 too. How about 4 players in 600 AD scattered across (Arabia, China or Japan, Vikings and a late coming Spain) so that there won't be any preemptive strikes? Squatting permitted.:)

    Count me in, I'm in GMT but free all day too. 600AD sounds better, not a lot of action before them.

    ^ All of us are on daylight savings and GMT is not, so 16:00 GMT is 12pm our time, 5pm their time.

    How about earlier: 10am US, 3pm UK?

    Um, I'm there. We're using the GameSpy thing right (I had fish out my password from long ago)?

    AP and i started a 3000 BC game just to keep us occupied. hopefully you UKers will come in later. then we can start a fresh game from 600 AD, or if it happens to make sense, possibly continue the 3000 BC game we're starting now.

    Looks like we have a slot free (Japan), so if anyone wants to jump in they're welcome to.

    umarth after you disconnected we couldn't find you in the lobby or here and waited a little while so for now we're letting your civ continue as an AI. please reconnect (or at least post) if you can :)

    Sorry, I accidentally hit the wireless button on my laptop and then it wouldn't reconnect. How did the game end?

    We saved around 1725 and hope to pick up the game later. I think the score was something like Vikings (AP) 1600, China (Umarth -> AI) 1400, Arabia (Jet) 1200.

    For playing again, how does next Saturday look? UUmarth, would you be interested in picking up the game in 1725, whether next Saturday or another day? (One can play any living civ).

    We could also play with a fourth if someone was interested. I wouldn't necessarily have to play Arabia again.

    You did such a gentlemanly thing by deleting 2 of your Arabian settlers, Jet. :worship:
    I think that barring some unfortunate stability-related issues (like England respawning), I will probably win a spaceship victory or domination victory around 1950. China may very well beat me to a cultural victory though.
    I'm on call next Saturday and Sunday so can't do it. But Sunday or Monday (Labor Day) is fine...
