    Some people are as invested in the representation as they are in the mechanics. I like a little of both.

    I thought it would be The Inca, but then Mali comes along and now I don't know

    Out of all the reveals so far, the Maori and Mali look the most interesting/unique. Think it'll have to be the Maori first, and then who knows?

    I always pick a civ that was in a previous expansion/DLC/the base game whenever I play a new one, so I can look at the new leader screens, as well as start from a familiar learning curve.

    Oh boy. Getting nervous. I've been over the moon soon as I saw Kupe and the Maori, but now Musa and Mali got me all distracted boyfriend like.

    I will decide when I have seen all the civs. It's tricky, though. I like building, I want to play peacefully, I am intrigued by the World Congress, and I appreciate civs which play differently. Many of the civs fit well with that. The only one I have ruled out is Hungary, as the other four are more interesting to me. If I had to make a list right now, it would probably be:
    1. Maori
    2. Mali
    3. Inca
    4. Canada
    5. Hungary

    ...but the top 4 spots are really close. Even though Canada looks kind of weak compared to the others, I do like the emphasis on peace and diplomacy.

    Well definitely doing Mali first now and try for a Science Victory.
    Maori will be second as of right now and try out the Culture Victory.
    For third I might actually try out a Cree game and try a Diplomatic Win.
    I'll have to wait and see what Phoenicia has in store and it might change the order and put them at second.

    Just out of curiosity: why is it so popular to pick civs that play differently (Maori, Mali) first? If I would choose a civ (what I won't do), I'd probably go for something like Greece or Rome first. Or one of the vanilla civs that got changed.

    Random/generic civ first game under easy difficulties to try the new game rules. After that, I don't know Inca maybe.

    My reasoning for Mali first is because I wanted them in the base game, and have been anticipating them. I picked them even before I knew the mechanics.
    The Maori, on the other hand, is interesting and definitely unique and I want to try them out second.

    Ottomans or Hungary ... Thats part of the world I am most interested. Hungry will be good options because its not something totaly new -- it would allowed slow game with good chance for exploring new game mechanich and not focus on Civ itself very much

    Yeah, logically I should "replay" a current civ so that I can better understand the new mechanisms and what's changed. But I always like to try someone "new", and certainly trying the new civs with the crazy new mechanisms is just the most unique and different.

    Aren't you just as curious about how the AI plays Maori and you want to meet them in your first game?

    You could always put 2 of them in the game. :) But I am more curious how I would play the Maori.

    I am too, but I want a baseline on which to judge. I think I want to first to experience the new rules of the expansion without the uniqueness of a "weird" civ getting in the way of my perception.

    There's no wrong way to go about it.

    You can pick an old civ and experience the new mechanics while using familiar uniques as a sort of base line.

    You can pick a new civ and have the novelty trip all the serotonin in your brain at once.

    You can live dangerously and pick random.

    I have to play Maori first. It is literally in my DNA.
