    Wonders pursued:
    • Alhambra
    • Big Ben
    • Casa de Contractación

    You plan a lot more than I do. :p My first game will be as the Cree on Chieftain, and what happens happens. ;) After that will probably be Korea (mostly because I love Korean city names), then Georgia, then the Netherlands--though all of that is subject to change if I find Scotland or the Mapuche really striking.

    Civilization: Mongolia
    Difficulty: Prince
    Speed: Standard
    Map: Pangea
    Size: Normal
    Other Civs: The seven remaining new civs
    Victory pursued: Domination
    First Governor: Whatever the situation dictates.

    Government District Buildings:

    Warlord's throne or whatever it is called.

    Wonders pursued:

    Probably won't worry about that. I will pursue cities that build them. :p

    Strategy:
    Will just be getting a large horse army and beating up people. If Seondeok gives me that line about clawing at the dirt, I'll rub her face in the mud. Lol.

    After that I will try for the other victory types as Mongolia. :)

    My first game will probably be a TSL Earth AI Battle Royale with every single civilization.

    First game for me in Rise and Fall is looking like Georgia either on Pangaea or TSL earth and I'll be trying to basically conquering all those around me and try for a domination victory.

    I like civs with strong infrastructure, so probably either the Cree or the Netherlands, pending final three. Prince difficulty, regardless. I’ll probably leave Georgia for last, as most of their bonuses don’t interest me.

    My first game is going to be a meet and greet. Tiny little map with no barbarians and no city states. Just me as a vanilla civ stuffed on a Pangaea landmass with the nine new leaders. I did this in G&K and BNW and plan to continue the tradition. I like to see the leader animations and whatnot, then quit. It's like unwrapping my gift.

    My first actual game, assuming none of the last three civs strikes my fancy and that there are no new map types, will be:

    Civilization: Cree
    Difficulty: King
    Speed: Standard
    Map: probably Continents, maybe Fractal
    Size: Large
    Other Civs: all the remaining new leaders + a vanilla civ (likely whichever one is most radically overhauled)
    Victory pursued: I'll see if I can leverage my Mekewap production into a science victory
    First Governor: probably Liang the Surveyor for her earlier perks, followed by Magnus the Steward

    I'm excited about pumping out Okihtcitaw, leveling them to Ambush (+20 combat strength in all situations), and preserving them throughout the game, upgrading them into Rangers and Spec Ops. Since Okihtcitaw have the same strength as a Warrior, it should be easy enough to do it. Imagine 40 strength Okihtcitaw in a big, dark forest. Rome better not send any Legions in. ;)

    Diff: King
    Speed: Quick
    Map: Fractal, Small or standard size, Low sealevel
    Other civs: Other new ones!
    Victory goal: Just fooling around, having fun with new features

    First Governor: The castellan

    Goverment buildings: Ancestral hall for the first one, to get a Governor promotion level

    Strategy: Mostly I plan trying out the new features, but I also want to play a sort of colonial strategy using Radio Orange UA.
    Going to settle on juicy spots with good luxuries and use trade routes to give loyalty. (Radio Oranje)
    Looking forward for some interesting emergencies, maybe I even need to cause one myself..

    And as I write this, I just remember the new Historic Moments system, I think it's cool to get this timeline with important moments and also to collect those Era Score points.

    Good thread, I like to read stuff like this. :)

    My friends and I are having a LAN that weekend to celebrate the release of R&F.

    Large, 8 players (4 human, 4 AI), pangaea.

    We'll probably play the new civs. Personally looking forward to the Netherlands.

    Definitely either the Cree or Mapuche if the latter is indeed in the game. The Native to the Americas Civs always appeal to me the most even if those north of Mesoamerica often have abilities that are somewhat bland. Really rooting for the Mapuche to have some cool interesting gameplay

    Probably Scotland (assuming they are in!), Prince, Pangaea, Large, Quick, vs the other new leaders and Victoria. Because you have to, really!

    Victory condition to be determined by whatever Scotland are good at, I suppose. If Scotland don't inspire me I'll roll Georgia instead. I plan to spend a lot of time playing as Georgia mostly because of the music :love:

    All random for the first game. I won‘t be sad if I get a vanilla civ that was left unchanged. There are enough new things in R&F besides new civs. Hope to meet a lot of them in the game though.
    Afterwards I will play the new or heavily changed civs in a randomly selected order.

    Other civs: definitely the new ones
    Victory pursued: not sure, depends on how the game plays out
    First Governor: Liang or Amani

    Not sure about the Government buildings yet though... As for the wonders, I share the "gotta build 'em all" attitude with some fanatics here, so there's not much to think about. :lol: I suppose I will prioritize the new wonders, just to see how good their bonuses are.
