    Hi folks,

    I used to organise ongoing games that met weekly to play for a couple hours until a game was finished, however many weeks...usually with 4 or 5 people.

    Looking to do probably the play by cloud option. I only have Gathering Storm so not the latest.

    At least one turn every day or two--more if people happen to be on simultaneously (or near enough).

    Post up if you're interested in seeing a game through to the end. Suggest options if you like.

    Tabarnak, zalta, Islandia, the oob, EEE_boy...if any of you fellas are around and see this, come on in. Or other folks from back in the civ ladder days (3, 4, 5).

    If there's enough interest, I'll set it up and we can get started! Tired of boring old AI...but too old and busy to spend hours every day (the twins are 7 now, it's about time).

    Cheers!

    Thanks TinyGoat, noted, this will probably take a while before getting off the ground, aiming for 5-6 players.

    MP can be rough with competent players. I expect to get more or less crushed if someone like Tabarnak joins. Would you still play your turns in the event your civ might have little left beyond national pride (and that might be tattered, too)? :)

    If that s what it take to try an MP game. With my schedule, cloud game is the only viable option for me. Please teach me something new :D. And yes I am obliged to stick till the end.

    Cool. Have set up a trial game, and PMed you the join code. Interested to see how this cloud business works.

    Back with Civ5 a couple guys basically created an app called GiantMultiplayerRobot to ... I think it was just basically like PBEM. Anyway...hopefully cloud is an improvement.

    Had a chat with Islandia and he's keen to give it a go, too.

    I'd be interested in this if it is still in the pipeline?
