    So after anticipating a nice easy day working from home Friday so I can play civ on the side, my boss has just booked me in for a teleconference from 9am till 5pm.

    So I though it would be interesting to see what are everyone else's plans and has anyone had their plans ruined like mine?

    I'm going to have a normal day, go to work, take care of the kids, then I will start it up after they go to bed.

    Working in the office, doing sports, heading over to my partner, having dinner with her, watching a film and going to bed... and dreaming from the weekend, when I finally will be able to found a new civilization!

    Yeesh that's a long teleconference. Terrible.

    I fortunately have Friday off so I am hoping the collectors edition is delivered on time. The rest of the weekend I am out of town with the girlfriend though so I will be extremely bummed if it arrives Saturday or Sunday

    I will be with a bunch of friends at a cottage in mountains with no access to internet. A bit of meditation and playing Civ the board games or Descent.

    I took a Personal Day off from work, so I'll essentially be getting paid to play lol. I'm gonna livestream a game as Gorgo during the day on Friday, but if I'm up at the time of release, I'm gonna start recording a Let's Play as Saladin.

    Luckily I took Friday off for other reasons. I might be able to squeeze in few a hours of playtime in the a.m.! I'm begging the Civ gods for for a midnight release.:bowdown:

    Warned my supervisor that I wont be in on Friday. In the UK so I'm hoping for a 9am launch local time, I doubt I'll stop playing until 9pm. Will make sure the fridge is stocked full so I dont get distracted.

    I believe this is the only game I've dedicated the release day for. Blame these forums for that!

    Launch night, this atheist will be converting to as many religions as possible and then praying that the Mac release comes out the same day. :bowdown:

    Well, it depends if amazon sends out steam keys before delivery. :D But I'll be up early to take the package in anyway. :p

    Did anyone think on the time needed for download and install?
    I hope it will be available on Steam a little bit earlier.

    I'm off Friday so here's hoping the game gets a Mac version on launch day! Even if not, I'm looking forward to the soundtrack and any rips of music from the game coming out.

    I'm the boss where I work, so I gave myself the day off. If I discover its to game, I'll give myself a stern talking too.

    No, seriously, I am the boss so I used a vacation day. I'll probably check to see if its available at midnight eastern, if it is, I'll make sure it downloaded. I probably won't open it then; I'll get some sleep and wake up the next morning, kiss my wife, and then play. My wife works second shift so I'll probably ignore her all morning, and then when she gets home she'll shake me to get me away from the computer, and we'll go to bed.

    We'll both play all day Saturday and Sunday, except for 1 hour of dog training, the quickest grocery shopping trip ever, and possibly dessert with her family because her birthday is Monday.

    Monday I'll go to work, she's off for her birthday, and she'll play all day.

    Then back to normal.
