    After most of the reveals have now been made - I'm pretty sure that I'm going with Sweden first.

    Sweden gives a lot of bonuses to one of my two favorite victory types (Culture, with Science being the other one) as well as bonuses to one of the main new GS game concepts (Diplomacy). It also strongly encourages wide play, which I much prefer. I think that Sweden will fit well into my normal play style, rewarding me for things that I already do - and encouraging me to focus even more heavily on some of them.

    While I think that I might like Mali and Maori more. They are both certainly very interesting; however, they change a bit too much about the base game for me to start with them as my first Civ for GS.

    Sweden is OK , but still probably Ottomans --- if they appear not to be very good designed --- then probably Hungary.

    I'll update my list a little, but Sweden certainly won't be first. But they look more interesting than Canada to me.

    1: Mali
    2: Maori
    3: Inca
    4: Phoenicia (tentative)
    5: Hungary
    6: Ottomans (tentative)
    7. Sweden
    8. Eleanor
    9. Canada
    10: USA maybe
    11: China
    12: Egypt
    13: Japan maybe
    and anyone else with significant changes

    At this point my list is looking like such:

    1. Inca
    2. Maori
    3. Sweden
    4. Mali
    5. Phoenicia?
    6. Eleanor?
    7. Ottomans? (may be higher than Eleanor if not overly warmongery--if too warmongery, will probably rank below Hungary)
    8. Hungary?
    ...
    ...
    ...
    ...
    ...
    ?. Canada

    Subject to change based on future reveals, of course.

    It's funny that Sweden definitely fits my playstyle but I don't necessarily won't to play them first. I do want to put them in as an AI though just for the Nobel Prizes.

    Okay Sweden just jumped into my must play list, but my first play is still a toss up between Mali and The Inca

    I was thinking of choosing Canada as my first Civ to play as, but now i'm thinking Sweden. Culture buildings with at least 3 great works getting automatically themed is sweet, plus the extra great scientist point from Universities is nice.

    I don't know though, definitely going to be either Sweden or Canada though from what has been revealed so far. I'm least impressed with the Inca, i'll probably only play them for the achievement.

    Im surprised everyone thinks Hungary is a 100% warmongering civ. Their abilities are excellent for a wide builder game, one that can win Dip quite easily as well.

    I love gold so unless Phoenicia and/or the Ottomans completely blow me away, it's Mali for me. Hard choice though, they've done a great job with the Civ design in GS, far better than R&F!
