    Should probably say Norway, but no.

    It will be a large continent map playing co-op. Probably going to chose Greece, Aztec or Brazil. Or possibly Spain....

    Rome. First civ I played in Civ 1 and in every version since. It's a tradition. How is a game old enough to have traditions!? :)

    I was leaning Scythia for a long time, but now I think it's going to be Greece. Rome is also a possibility, though.

    America, I think. Just because it seems like a vaguely-vanilla civilization, but it also has some character to it. Homeland battle bonus will be fun to exploit, too!

    I honestly have no idea. Probably the random civ.

    Or hey, lets make it fun. If they reveal one more civ, I will play that first. :D

    Random, for quite a while, restarting as things duplicate.

    Otherwise, I'd probably just focus on the good civs and ignore the bad ones. :p

    Arabia looks a great mix for my kind of game i.e. science, faith, culture etc.

    I'm playing a four player LAN multiplayer game on the release date. I think we are going to have random nations.

    Egypt for me most likely, because I love the real world civilization.

    Probably Sumeria, since I've always been fascinated by their civ IRL. Random civs after that til I've cycled through them all. I prefer to play on random settings anyway.

    After watching Marbozirs Greece Let's Play, I think production is the main limiting factor in the current CIV 6 build.

    In my first game I want to experiment with a lot of different things, so I'll probably go with Germany because of their production focus. My original plan was Greece but the extra policy slot doesn't look as powerful as I thought it was going to be.

    I want to play as Rome first, but I think I'll play as America since they don't have as many "work arounds" or direct changes. Basically I think Rome is awesome, but not having to worry about roads or a monument to build will deprive me of an important aspect of the game that I'll want to learn. That in addition to having the baths with will make housing and amenities easier to maintain. I'll want to learn that without being aided. American bonuses are nice but are mostly add-ons to already preexisting concepts that won't really affect how you learn the game.

    TL;DR America

    I am most interested in the Aztecs and Spain but I have grand schemes in mind for them and I feel they would be better if I had a better understanding of how the game normally works first.

    I think I'll go with Egypt so I can have fun trying to find rivers and exploit their unique bonuses. Hopefully the AI will allow me to have the pyramids

    I'll probably do random, but Arabia seems most interesting to my playstyle.

    I want to try a Germany Scout Spam.

    Build like 4-5 scouts immediately. Use them for scouting a bit with +5 vs Barbs and double XP. And then attack a City State with them that you don't like with +7 Combat strength farming XP to get to the +20 strength promotion then conquer the city supported by your initial warrior. Not sure if that works but worth a try.

    Scouts by itself are bad. But with +7/+5, big numbers and double XP maybe you can get to +20 strength promotion and then they might be amazing.
