    If Hungary will have gossiped ability of turning barb outposts into cities, I'll definitely start with this. Otherwise, can't say.

    Mine too, so Inca leads in my ranking. Also i played civV alot with them in multi coop with Dutch since in civ V you could build UIs in ally territory, so i miss them and that feature too.

    Second will be Eleanor.. while india and greece alt leader were a bit borring (mostly due to civ UA) loking at france (if france) it will be wayyyy different gamplay than from Catherine.

    They don't.

    That leak was proven false. Their abilities were fully revealed in their First Look video and talked about in this discussion thread.

    I'm looking forward to all the new civs, so I'll just work down the list of them in the leader selection screen.

    I'm just going to go straight in at the deep end with the Maori most probably... may change my vote but I want to see how well they can push culture with a science game. No need for great writers makes for more flexibility earlier... will be interesting to see what happens to foreign theaters also.

    I was going to play with the Maori first, but after seeing the Inca, I think they will be a better option for geting used to the new mechanics. Their abilities seem like they are a solid base to build out of and will give me some room to experiment without worrying about a particular victory type.

    I do think I will try to play the Maori second for that Environmentalist run. We Harmony now!

    I had no idea that was a thing, but that would be awesome.

    I have to admit, I'm not fond of her as a leader choice, but she may well make France one of my favorite civs to play--mid game wonders are my favorite to build, but Catherine's leader abilities do nothing for me since I hate the espionage game. I just wish alt leaders got their own themes. "Quand je bois le vin clairet" is fine, but Civ6's arrangement of "Scarborough Fair" is so dreary and tedious...

    I'll start with whichever new leader is closest to the top of the list, and then I'll work my way downward. And then I'll go back and play with each of the older leaders in alphabetical order.

    I'll stick with Australia, I don't play any of the other civs all that often anymore, because I don't like the idea of playing against the Aussies and perhaps going to war against them. Although if the Aussie leader was John Howard, Tony Abbott, Malcolm Turnbull or Scott Morrison I'd have no trouble declaring war.:)

    England, I always do this, so I can enjoy the first-greeting with EVERY civ (Assuming one does not get killed off before hand xD)

    Then Maori.

    A decree has been loosed from the mouth of the Earth Shaker: the whole world shall be terraced. And, when there is no hillside left to dig, no fields left to till- Pachacuti shall embark to mars and terrace that, too.

    I'm going to play as Hungary, that bonus production towards districts and it's buildings sounds very good, plus from what i've heard of their music it sounds very good. Probably Maori then since their replacement for the amphitheatre looks awesome, though their starting location put me off them a bit.

    I probably won't play the Inca for a good while, food isn't very important in Civ VI because of housing limits and the terrace farm takes up good campus spots and hills. I normally get enough food from flatland.

    Mmm, so far Inca, but it really depends on the other Civ’s bonuses.

    Maybe Mali or the Ottomans. But I will fenintley try out the New England (sorry, auto correct) or other existing docs that have got a rework.

    I haven't decided yet. I intially thought I'd play England versus all the new civs. But I remembered that China also has gotten changed, one of my favourite civs, so that's also a consideration. And I'm very hyped for Sweden too, but if the design is disappointing I'd rather meet them in my first game.

    Rome first so I can get the lay of the land, then Hungary. I probably never play as Canada, for me the worst Civ ever

    For some reason it feels like a second Scotland to me, probably the gold course/Ice rink.
    For me it was clear from the video that the additional political favor gained is a resource you can sell worth roughly a luxury in value. So in essence instead of around 6 GPT near the beginning of the game you can get 12 GPT and quite a flexible resource so yes, I will be playing them primarily to get a feel of the new diplomatic game.

    I'm really interested in the unique flavor of the Maori, so they're a top candidate. Greece is always one of the first civs I use after coming back from a hiatus. Perhaps reworked England, as they may be usable in GS.

    Inca and Maori are high contenders right now (with Maori having a slight edge), but I can't say for sure without knowing the remaining civs.
