    :blush: The sums in post 16 weren't simply wrong - they were dramatically wrong :dubious:

    Everyone should know that my numbers must be double checked every time ;)

    31 + 27 + 13 + 8 + 3 = 84
    84 / 6 = 14 out of 18 votes are in...

    Who's missing?

    It looks the choice is between Hannibal and Pacal.
    They have several things similar, both are Financial and start with Mining.
    Two strong bets, Financial leads to CE, while not necessary, and this means
    just enough food pays the bill; mining are hills,hammers and step to BW and more.
    Hannibal is Charismatic, very strong too; Fishing, Cotton and Numidian.
    No doubt he is very strong on an water map (like Willem or Joâo) but without...
    Cotton is useless, and his UU nothing special.
    Pacal is Expansive what makes good synergy with Court Ball, Mysticism can lead
    to an early religion and Holkan needs no resources that can be important to
    early defense or rush not to destroy but to leave the opponent helpless for the
    whole game.
    More important (I think) Pacal can work well in any map (like Capac).
    So, I'll vote Pacal.
    Best regards,

    A quick reminder - has your team decided your stance on Duplicate Leaders? I looked around the forum and couldn't find a clear answer on that. Please make sure to let me know your decision on that issue, as well as your leader choice(s), by the end of tomorrow. Thanks. :)

    Duplicate leaders looks nice, but I remember a big problem in a game I played with.
    It was not possible to know who is who, as the name and the colour was the same.
    If this problem is removed I would say yes, otherwise no.
    Best regards,

    The name is different, because we aren't AI; but we get in F4 the same leader-head.

    But we haven't 5 leader.

    There won't be 2 teams ending up with the same colour.
    In case there are 2 Pacals in the game for example, CIV will change the colour of one of them (for example to Gilg's colour).

    If you have a large number of players, Civ will recycle colors, or use colors very close to other colors. With 5 players that shouldn't be a problem.

    I see well the different colours shown by HUSch, so I agree with duplicate leaders.
    And about leader: Pacal,Vicoria,Isabella.
    Best regards,
