    At its core, it's not super complicated anyway. Balance expansion against growth and citizen happiness, and if in doubt listen you your advisers when it comes to choosing new tech.

    I don't think we should go for a random map as some of them are broken (Continents+), some give certain civs massive advantages (England and Archipelago) while some are kind of boring (I think one of the South American ones has zero tiles that produce hammers) and always the exact same map. I think just a standard continents or Terra or maybe even Earth would work best to keep it fun and balanced.

    It might be worth playing a few games of BNW before this so you know what you're doing and don't end up getting wiped out by turn 30 by someone who managed to get Atilla.

    What makes Continents+ broken? Continents tends to be my preferred style of map when playing solo, since you get to play across land and sea.

    Continents+ while producing great maps has a broken City State placement system and mostly dumps them on one island cities in the middle of the ocean or away from the actual civs in clumps. Really ruins the City State dynamic of the game with them taking up land you might want to use rather than simply being a free supply of culture for 500 gold. Standard continents is fine.

    Ah yeah, I had noticed that in Pangea+ as well, really sucks. 'Improved city state placement' my arse, it just makes it really boring.

    Do you mean sunday 22nd of June? Or saturday 21st? I will be away on the 21st, but I don't have the expansions yet so don't make plans based on me. I can join the next game once I have the expansions.

    I'll be away, and I don't honestly think I've actually got time for this anyway so I'll bow out (but I really should try one of these games at some point)

    I'm extremely interested, but I don't think I'll be able to make it (arriving back overnight from Canada the day before so will probably be a letlagged mess). Is there a deadline for this?

    Also google thinks this is the cheapest place to buy the DLC http://uk.mmoga.net/Steam-Games/Civi...2&currency=GBP I've never bought from here, and until today had never heard of it. Looks like your standard dodgy keys site, but it's selling it for £9.06 , so you may feel it's worth it....

    See this is why people need to make sure they all have the DLC, because then you wouldn't embarrass yourselves.
