    I am going to give Poland the nod first of all. I truly want to see how the new Culture/Tourism works.
    After that, I will give the Zulu a go. The idea of having missle-armed melee troop is sounding very
    interesting.

    Here is my order of the 7 brand-new Civs,

    1: Morocco: I really am excited to see them, and they look like a good nation to make a huge trade empire with.

    2: Poland: YAY! The west Slavs (my ethnicity) are represented! Also, winged hussars look crazy awesome, and it seems like a fun play to get to know the new culture/tourism.

    3: Portugal: Really, Really, unique, and a fun trade/exploration civ. (one of my favorite kinds)
    4: The Zulu: Because early war civs are always fun
    5: Brazil: Also seems like a unique and fun civ.
    6: Assyria: Their UA could be bad if you are already far ahead in tech, but the UB looks GREAT
    7: Indonesia: All 7 look great fun, but Indonesia looks least fun. Cool UB though, and pretty colors

    Assuming Venice is in, they might be 4th or 5th, and assuming the 9th Civ is Native American, then if it is the Shawnee, the Seminole, the Ute, or the Powhatan, they will be played 3rd, and if it is any other Civ, they will be 5th or 6th.

    Venice if it's in, otherwise none of them. I'll set them as AI in my first game though.

    Poland, though mostly for the much vaunted 'flexibility', which should make exploring all the new features easy.

    Poland. I enjoy picking social policies and thinking about how they will change the gameplay, so I like the idea of extra ones.

    (I, of course, am also looking forward to ideologies for just this reason)

    France on Large Continents, with all the BNW Civs as AIs.

    After that, Morocco, then Indonesia. Not sure after that.

    I'm thinking probably either Poland or Indonesia first; I want to have the chance to experiment with the new features while not having to figure everything out all at once (for fear of failing completely!)

    1) Morocco, because they look kinda awesome.
    2) Brazil, because they fit my turtling playstyle better.
    3) Poland, because their history is crazyawesome.
    4) Venice (if it is in fact in, and we aren't simply being led on), for the same reasons as Poland.
    5) Portugal, because their attributes look kinda cool.
    6) Indonesia, because their attributes also look kinda cool.
    7) France, for the same reasons as Brazil.
    8) Byzantium, for being my favourite civ historically.
    9) Indonesia, because they are new and look cool.

    Will probably never really play Assyria and the Zulu. Neither look particularly interesting to me and my playstyle.

    Portugal or Indonesia. Coastal locations seem to get a massive boost in BNW (trade routes, Lighthouse giving production on resources, Exploration tree), and I want to get a feel for how large that boost is and how much priority you have to give to getting a coastal city if your capital starts inland.

    Assuming the last two civilizations are Venice and a native american civ, I'll probably go with Brazil. However, if they surprise us with a different civ, I might end up choosing them. I guess I'll just have to wait and see to be certain.
