Anyone down for a Civ II PBEM game?

Postby Army of GOD on Tue Nov 20, 2012 2:07 am

There's a site you can download Civ II for free; it's a small file so you don't have to worry about the size of it (all you have to do is un-rar it which is easy with a free program...you can uninstall the un-raring program afterwards).

We can do PBEM (play by email) which means all you do is go to your email, download the saved game someone sent you, open it, take your turn, save it, email it to the next person.

Don't be dicks now, I know you guys are interested (I'm looking at you BBS, Woodruff, others).

OMG This would be awesome. Give me a week to confirm.
What exact version are you talking about? Because I know they released gold and a multi-player something.

Gold, that's the only way you can play multiplayer.

Also I just posted this song in the video game soundtrack thread.

Okay, And all the resources work fine? (Like music, heralds and wonder videos)

And I just replied to said post, while thinking you'd probably reply to it here :P

I'm down to play. I have Civ2 Gold MP Edition from a torrent...it should work fine. I'll probably get my ass kicked, but it will be fun nonetheless.

Do we need to exchange email addressed or something?

More than likely. I'll get a group PM going once we get saturated.

er, I mean, that might slow the game down a bit. I was hoping to do sort of like a CC 24 hour limit thing.

If we had 8 players and we all took an almost-24 hour turn, it could go a week per round.

Just a thought: why don't we just play freeciv?

Pros:
It's free, legally
It's available on Mac, win, Linux, without those crazy win95 comp issues
We can have way more players and generally customize stuff better


Cons
The graphics aren't as nice (but they are customizable)
No music/wonder videos
