    Who would be the weakest one for Carl to play as? Ghandi? Tamar?

    Carl needs to be Georgia and Ed needs to be Persia.

    Then we might see some last minute balance changes C:

    Whatever he does, Ed should not give The Ottomans to Carl. That would be a really short game. LOL

    Hmmm. What about the other choices? Map? Speed? Difficulty? Ask Ed.

    Its an interesting question. I suspect nothing will save poor Ed, but maybe we can come up with a civ and some strategies as well that will at least frustrate Karl.

    Oooh, already got it.

    Tell him Phoenicia. Island map.

    Ed should pick Maori for the strong, early (possibly resourceless) UU and give Carl Canada.

    I was thinking that, but maximizing Inca is probably beyond Ed's ability. But a straight-up early naval troll is very simple and easy.

    edit: its not just about picking a civ, its about picking a civ that Ed will be successful with.

    He also gets to pick the two AI civs.

    And if Carl has Ottoman, and Ed Phoenicia, it might be a wicked cool game.

    If he's picking the other two ai civs, do NOT pick Eleanor as either of them. O mon dieu.

    Hmmm. Although, its possible to get the ai to help him. I'm sorry, do we know the agendas yet? I haven't seen them.

    edit: nm... in pvp, only an idiot is going to build a city directly on the coast. I'd have to think about this more, and watch some of Ed's games a bit more thoroughly.

    Its a cool idea. Maybe we can see Sara woop some buttock in the future!

    Clearly Carl should have Mali, while Ed should have the Ottomans.

    It's his best shot, I would imagine.

    Okay okay I have it.

    Ed - Maori
    Carl - Phoenicia

    Force them to fight over coastal territory.

    Then...

    AI - Ottomans

    Naval raiders and Ibrahim espionage.

    AI - Eleanor of England

    Sea dog and cultural flipping.

    Phonecia could make a good job settling on the coast since she would be loyalty immune and her “heal every turn boats” would make her cities hard to take from the water without a significant military advantage (downing the boat in one turn).
