    Joking aside. A draft system could be fun. Key thing is all teams want 4-5 active players at end of game. So 6-7 players would help.

    I think last game some teams suffered as they had 2-3 active players near the end. Where PR and HS core players stayed around.

    I have played a few SGOTMs in the past. Depending on the new game settings, I could be interested in joining.

    Give me the first turnset and I'll totally tank those OP teams. "drew.... why do we not have a 2nd city yet.... wait drew why do we have TGW?!?"

    There’s no doubt that you guys have been ahead by the mid-game more or less something like five games in a row…

    As long as you guys don’t come up with another game-altering gambit, it should be a good match.

    Lol, I don't know if it even is technically possible - but would be fun to mandatory switch teams to AI for a couple turns - I mean fun to lurkers like me, not devoted players I guess .

    Jokes aside: I love SGOTMs, I even tentatively signed up for the previous one before realizing I cannot play on Mac ;(. Anyway, love the as a lurker, especially enjoying unusual scenarios and requirement and seeing how teams are dealing with them. And math and high-level knowledge of civ and its quirks and algos. Hope that this will happen.

    Put bootcamp on your Mac and play the windows version.

    Thanks for the tip, never tried it. Maybe when I have more time and energy, I remember civ was easier to automated when played on windows. Otoh, I tried one of the early Win emulators on Mac and it was super inconvenient but that was a looong time ago

    No news from @Noble Zarkon or @AlanH.

    Do we give them another week or so? It is first week of a new year. If they are unable to help we will need a map maker and plan how this might work.

    I know many would love the distraction and challenge of a new game. There would have to be a big element of trust if saves had to be loaded to forum.

    Let's just wait and see.
    AlanH has just updated Civ3 gotm, so I have good hopes.

    I would not say that "big" amount of trust is needed. Anyone still playing civ4 is doing it for love of the game. It will be a friendly competition.
