    1: Mali
    2: Maori
    3: Inca
    4: Phoenicia
    5: Ottomans
    6: Hungary
    7. Sweden
    8. Eleanor
    9. Canada
    10. Germany
    11. Georgia- yes Georgia
    12: USA maybe
    13: China
    14: Egypt
    15: Japan maybe

    I do like some of Phoenicia's mechanics, but so do I like my top 3 positions civ's mechanics. As much as I like Phoenicia and I'm happy they are in the game, not the Carthage we used to always get, I can't honestly say I'll play them before Mali, Maori, or Inca.

    I added Germany to my list because of a comment in a recent thread reminded me about the power/IZ changes, and really want to crank up the production with them with factories giving bonus production with adjacency bonus.

    Phoenicia is less gimmicky than I was anticipating. Pretty straightforward maritime expansionist civ.

    But I like that style of gameplay, so I will probably play them first anyway.

    Now I've seen every civ, I'm even more curious to the possible changes they've made to existing civs...

    I think Canada would have been better received if we had known more about diplomacy at the time of the reveal. Still not my favorite but I think they're better than I thought too.

    Poor Canada. At this point, they do appear to be the civ with the worst mechanics and design in the game. Their new slogan will be: Eh, at least we aren't Georgia. I'll get around to playing them, mainly for the achievements. I can't see myself doing multiple plays of them.

    I'll go thru the new list alphabetically. And I will be sure to play against each new civilization. I won't play for a conquest victory every time, but ultimately I want to see all the defeat scenes. I may be tempted to play the WWI scenario first.

    Hmm this is going to be tough. I'll be going with either Phoenicia or Maori. Although I usually don't do this I might add in Sweden as a civ just to meet Kristina, something tells me she'll be a lot of fun.

    Second will be either Inca or Sweden, although Mali is tempting to me too.

    I think I will play phoenicia first. They might not be as special as I hoped, but at least it will serve well to introduce new features^^

    Compared to Maori...

    I really like Maori, Mali, Phoenicia, and Inca. Not sure what order exactly but probably Mali first. I think they all appeal to the way I like to play while also providing enough uniqueness to make things interesting.

    I am really impressed with their civ design. I think one of the major weaknesses of the game at launch was uninspired civ design but they have really helped fix that with expansions and DLC. I know some people like to bash certain civs for their power level but with scaling difficulty it is easy to find the right level where it is both fun and a challenge.

    I don’t know how I’ll update my list with Phoenicia now in play, but I absolutely want to play them with all other naval civs in the game, maybe just naval civs only. On deity? Definitely not the first time.

    I will play Mali on TSL Earth YnAMP. I just want to settle the whole Sahara and drown in gold.

    Thinking about it I'll probably go for Egypt second, going on a wonder spree is always fun to me :)

    My first 3 games will be
    1. Inca
    2. Mali
    3. Phoenicia

    I keep everything pretty standard in options just so I don't have an advantage over the AI in knowing who/where certain things are. But I do hope Sweden is in as an AI for at least 1 of these games as I'd like to check out the extra World Congress options she provides.
