    hi onclouds - of course! - had to abandon that last game as many people seemed to have lost interest - you are very welcome to this one!

    do people want to pick civs & let me know their GMTs and we can think about setting this up. will hang on another day or so to see if we have any more interest.

    I'm in San Diego (GMT -8). I can play any time between 8 AM and 10 PM, so playing two turns a day is possible.

    Civ - Catherine

    I prefer starting in the ancient era.

    With continents and quick speed, by the time troops arrive at the other continent, they are already obsolete. I'll go with the majority, but I vote for normal speed.

    If we set the play order properly and people can play two turns/day (i.e. one in the morning and one in the evening), we'll get through the early part of the game rather quickly.

    We've got 5 players now. Let's agree on the settings and get started.

    Hello
    I'm GMT and will play Frederick.
    Would vote for normal speed and classical start.
    Does anybody else want a vote on these before we get started? Am happy to start the game but am not very experienced so if anybody is more sure of getting it right first time then please feel free to volunteer in my stead.

    Hi,

    I don't mind getting it started. The play order will be:

    Mitchum - GMT -8 - Catherine - mitchkettrick at hotmail dot com
    The strategist - GMT +1 - Bizmarck - just_tp at hotmail dot co dot uk
    Egypt803 - GMT - Frederick - egypt803 at hotmail dot com
    onclouds - GMT - Gandhi - joaocarlospinheiro at gmail dot com
    Churchill 25 - GMT -8 - Alexander - karl_of_europe at yahoo dot com

    I'll start the game as egypt803 has suggested tonight unless I hear otherwise. I assume that we're all open to majority rules, so feel free to cast your vote if you don't like the suggested settings.

    One last thing, do we want any AI to sharpen our swords?

    Please provide you e-mail address so everyone knows where to send their saves.

    Please let me know how I would set this u.
    Would a simple save of the file and then Multiplayer-->PBEM-->Load Game would do?

    I'll use the settings from egypt803's initial e-mail:

    Continents, standard size
    No tech trading
    Raging barbs
    All victory conditions on
    5-6 human players
    Noble

    Plus:

    AI Players: 2 random. Hopefully they end up on different continents...
    Speed: 2 votes normal (Mitchum and Egypt) and 1 vote quick (Churchill). Does anyone else want to vote?
    Start: 2 votes classical (Egypt and onclouds) and 1 vote ancient (Mitchum). With a Classical start, everyone starts at 2160 BC with 17 first-tier techs (e.g. wheel, writing, hunting, bronze working, priesthood etc.) and 4 units (settler, worker, archer and scout). Does anyone else want to vote?

    The strategist, I e-mailed you a test duel game to see if you can open it, play your turn, and send it back to me. Be sure to set your password.

    If no one else votes, I'll set up the game according to the majority above and send it to Churchill at about 9 PM Pacific Daylight time.

    Churchill, we still need your e-mail address. If I don't get it by tonight, I'll put you at the end of the roster (i.e. right before me) so that we can get this game going.

    OK. I finally got my kids to bed and I rolled a start. I realize that some of you were sleeping during my post earlier and may not have had time to vote. If you're not happy with the settings below, let's discuss what to do.

    Level: Noble
    Map: Continents
    Size: Standard
    Climate: Temperate
    Sealevel: Medium
    Era: Classical
    Speed: Normal
    Raging barbarians
    No technology trading
    All victory conditions enabled
    Two random AI to fill the standard-size map

    Play order:

    Mitchum - GMT -8 - Catherine - mitchkettrick at hotmail dot com
    The_strategist - GMT +1 - Bizmarck - just_tp at hotmail dot co dot uk
    Egypt803 - GMT - Frederick - egypt803 at hotmail dot com
    onclouds - GMT - Gandhi - joaocarlospinheiro at gmail dot com
    Churchill_25 - GMT -8 - Alexander - karl_of_europe at yahoo dot com

    Pressing ALT-D allows you to change the details of your leader. I suggest changing your name to Name (Leader) (i.e. Mitchum (Catherine)). That will allow us to keep track of who is who.

    Game played and sent to The_strategist.

    Egypt, you may want to edit your first post and copy the information above into it so that we can easily find it in the future reference. You should also put "GAME IS FULL" as the first line.
