    That's entirely cool, I can definitely understand that, I'd be just as leery of a completely new person in a game with such a big commitment. So, to that end, I'll take this opportunity to answer a little of Onan's questions, and allow myself to introduce . . . myself. ;)

    I've been playing all the SP versions since Civ II, though I've never really tried to play the harder levels. I've also played the original Colonization; MoO 2; the Rome, Empire, and Napoleon Total War games, and a hand-full of your typical RTS games (Starcraft, Dawn of War, etc.).

    Board games include chiefly Risk, Castle Risk, and Axis & Allies, with some table-top wargaming thrown in for good measure.

    And with that, I'll quit de-railing your thread. :) Hope to see y'all in-game sometime!

    Agreed with EEE. We'll catch you in another one, TiVO, and thanks for offering. You probably would've been fine.

    Given Genji made no comment re reverting, let's add him where we are, unless we hear different soon. :)

    There are lots of other GMR games getting started now, as I'm sure you've noticed. It seems to have really taken off! ...can't remember which MoO I played...first maybe.

    My internet has been down for the last week. I apologize for slowing down the game. I would like to play if I could, and was looking forward to this game, but understand if you choose not to allow me to.

    Hi Wyrda,

    Thanks for getting back in touch. If you'd been a little earlier it might've been okay, but seeing as we've just subbed in a player for you...dunno.

    I guess I could leave it up to genjikhan/luciferkid. If he's okay now bowing back out, and letting you retake your spot, I guess I'd be okay with that. Also as long as Mel is willing to do it. However I don't think we'd revert the turns at all for you, at this point.

    I'm not asking you to do that, Genji, but if your conscience would be bothered, it's an option.

    Anyone who has a connection failure like this should consider a trip to a net cafe to let everyone know what's happening. ;)

    Nice guy, huh? :p

    Okay, Wyrda, you have a reprieve. Is your modem all sorted out? Should be fine going forward?

    This is a little test to. Check on your responsiveness...hopefully you still have the thread bookmarked. Might send you another email, too. Say the word within a reasonable amount of time, and we can reinstate you.

    Have put another comment in the game thread on GMR, just waiting for Mel to swap you back in. Several players still have turns before you, I think you'll probably make it in before your turn comes around.

    Welcome back, glad you could make it, and please find a way to keep us posted if you run into any future technical issues. :)

    Does anyone else do a little dance for joy when Spain is in the game and you discover a wonder and think to yourself - that's 400 gold I cost those Spaniards... not that Tab needs the help.

    100% of the time. Especially in tiny maps for 2v2 teamers when they random Spain and I start praying to find wonders asap.

    Hi, Onan and everyone, since Starflame was replaced by another player in GMR game Fall of Roman, shall we elect to replace another player in this game as well? It's matter of the time before the kick limit is reached.

    I did a little advertising, so Banman will be willing to sub. His Steam ID is banman39
