It's a great scenario about the colonization of Africa. Playing the Dark Continent map here makes me want to play that scenario...


No, I never really got into the downloading. I had plenty of fun with the ones that came with Gold Edition.

You really should try some of them out. A lot of them suck, but there are some real gems in there too.

Never heard of it. No idea what it is.

Also, BBS is in the game too.

I'm provisionally in, but I have some questions that need answering.

(1) Where can I download Civ II?
(2) What are the game settings (so I can practice)?
(3) Any rules regarding how long between turns?

AoG, you suck at math. We have 9 players now. X never confirmed, bringing us down to 8. We may have to go with FreeCiv, after all.

This weekend (maybe Friday) I will create a PBEM tutorial. Nietzsche can set up the game. Everyone post what nation you want here.

I want Random

Things we need to decide:
Isometric (like civ 2), grid or hex map? I like to random this one
Size of map? Something not too big, I like to keep the pressure on
Civ 2 tech tree or slightly updated one (it has workers which don't cost food, so I prefer it)
Computer players? I say no
Raging hordes of barbarians? I say yes. I also vote that they start at turn 1, which most people think is totally cruel
Should we allow the game to unbalance based on tiny islands? I say yes

In theory you could play with someone else through Skype who has the software installed. There is an android phone app. Alternately, we can figure out why you cant install it.

Curious. Have you tried troubleshooting this? Have you tried pirating a new copy of windows and reinstalling it?

No. I could probably get my whiz buddy to do something about it. I already know he will probably just say to get a new computer, but I usually only do that when one is totally broken and starts pissing me off.
