    Does this series have longevity? Most of the topics indicated that the game was on the decline and the hosts did not play the game anymore. Seems a bit odd way to host a podcast unless this was the precursor to the group getting back into the game.

    :cool:

    (I know I'm neither regular co-host, but I had a hand in the editing of this episode so I'll join in. :D)

    At/near the end of the episode, both Methos and AlphaShard indicated their intention to get back into CivWorld with the assistance of an approach discussed earlier. In short, yes to your precursor point. :)

    For those who were, and were not, satisfied with this episode alike, note that the show has been re-launched today with a completely new regular panel as well as its first guest co-host.
