Reasons absent. Regular players Daniel "DanQ" Quick, "Makahlua", Scott "AlphaShard" Dirk and "UberMarklar" are accompanied by fellow co-operative Civilization V multiplayer players in the fifty-ninth episode of TurnCast (TC). Entitled "Lots of Excuses", its runtime is 09m59s. Snippets include but are not limited to for fun, feeling better, appropriate response, background someone, and double down. TurnCast is the third spin-off of the Civ strategy-centric PolyCast on which Quick and Makahlua serve as regular co-hosts; the modding-centric ModCast was the first, and the console-centric RevCast the second, such spin-off. The fourth spin-off, SCivCast, covers Civ on social media.
