    Substitute "37" with "35", and "TinkerBell" with "Ruggi" and that basically sums it up as a start. (I am the friend Tinkerbell is mentioning).

    Hey Everyone, I am Neil and I live about one hour away from Ottawa. I have been playing Civ since III and also have Alpha Centauri. I am a grade 11 student currently taking: Chemistry, Physics, Math, English, Computer Science, Communications Technology, Art, and Philosophy. I like the play Civ peacefully and build up my own empire and only go to war when i can crush the opponent quickly. I play Civ IV on prince difficulty and rarely play multiplayer.

    Also irrelevant, I play rugby, practice archery, and do 3D modeling in my free time.

    Hi everyone,
    I'm topas and I'm from Germany. Some kind hind in the german civforum.de by (probably) hummel made me aware of this game. While I do have some first experiences in democracy games from the ISDG and another DG at the civforum, this is the first DG I participate right from the start.

    I actually live in the small town of Pembroke and please just call me Neil and as for German I have no idea but I am going to guess that says: "I can speak German better then my first language"

    Hi partners.
    I'm a 65 years old,retired man and live in Lisbon, so at TMG.
    I play civ games since their begin, 1991 I think. Usually I play single games at
    Immortal level (sometimes I win,sometimes I lose). It's easier to me the builder
    part of the game then the war or diplomacy or information gathering.
    I know little of English and nothing of computers.
    I played several Pitboss simultaneous, but no Pitboss sequencial, I guess not
    much different, but truly do not know.
    I can be turn player, if needed, while I am more interested in learning, so see
    the game, post and read about. But please remember my poor English shall make
    poor reports and I cannot do that spoilers and special maps tricks, due to my
    computer' lack of skills.
    Best regards,

    Hi Fed! :wavey:

    Glad to have you on the team. Immortal players are always an asset, no matter what skills their computer may lack ;)

    From your post above, I'd say your English perfectly fine for posting turn reports.

    It's good to know that we have several possible turnplayers here... If only we could get a couple from Australia, Japan, New Zealand - somewhere 12 hours opposite! Then we'd be covered to handle play at just about any time of day.

    Hi Everyone,

    My name is John. I've been playing Civ since Civ II (usually on the middling levels). I've never played multiplayer/democracy so this'll be new.

    Personal info, I'm 37 with two daughters and I live in Massachusetts. I work in high tech too.

    Hi fellas!
    I am Tomas, from Norway, social anthropologist by profession.
    Basically I joined this game to learn more about Civ4, as I have not yet fallen in love with it after years of Civ3 gaming.
    I have participated in one DemoGame before, on the same team as Peter - The Council. That game is still ongoing.
    I thought that was a great experience, and also very educational, so I was hoping for the same from this game. I will try and offer any input, if I can, but please bear with me as the questions and suggestions might be on the more ignorant side. :)

    Glad to have you here, Councillor ;)

    If you have BtS, patched up to 3.17, then feel free to take over one of the AI civs in our Warmup Game. It's an open game, so even if you're playing you can read the other player's spoilers. It could be a good way to learn a little more about BtS.
