Okay I really need to improve my game and playing a higher level may help me. I am somewhat confident at Emperor although I do make some strange but interesting choices at times as many cookbook players will tell you. Not sure why I chose Zara as i don't think I have ever won a game with him. Perhaps just not played him. In terms of the game if you intend to shadow do so using spoilers. Perhaps post saves at certain dates. 1500bc/400ad/1300ad. I want to be able to see how my play differs to other immortal or higher level players at certain year. I will play slowly at the start and take advice on city placement and early techs. I'll try and play the map. Hopefully if all goes well and I don't have a silly map I should be on par by about 1300ad. See what happens!! If anyone from my SGOTM wants to shadow that would be interesting to see. If someone could screen map to make sure it is not too silly that would be good. Obviously I don't want any spoilers. Okay here the game details. Spoiler : The uu The UB The Start Game settings The leader Let the game begin.
