    Did anyone have Ryan Dunn From Jackass FAME? He died in a fiery car crash speeding after being in a bar. And to think, everyone thought he would die doing something stupid-rah

    GT, since we are the only ones playing now, do you want to start a new game?

    If so, I have a suggestion... We start and then invite anybody else who is interested to play turns in between without obligation to return. We would be there all the time but maybe people like Snoopy would help us out by playing turns now and then if he felt like it - sort of no obligation guest appearances.

    I can find a new start if that is acceptable.

    lol, i might make no-obligation guest appearances, especially on mondays. But not in the current game, that's too insane for my tastes

    4000: Moved scout around to find out if it's a coast or a lake (coast). Moved settler 1 to new city location, as i'm not building on a cow Road cow.

    3950: Scout finds a hut, next turn to pop. Build Zimbabwe; start Granary right away. Large map + Expansionist = no mil units needed yet. 30 turns to start with.

    3900: Alpha at 45 turns 90% sci. Scout pops hut and gets 25gp. Finds some Wine. Remember to tell Paddy to stay AWAY from the wine ...

    3850: Irrigating the ZIM cow. Scout finds ... more desert.

    3800: Scout finds hut in desert. We have a huge desert here people ...

    3750: Hut gives us a Skilled Warrior. Well, not so skilled as he's 2/2, but still. Scout heads across desert, warrior heads to explore south.

    3700: More exploring.

    3650: Warrior finds Dyes! Scout finds end of desert. Irrigating Worker stops irrigating as he's done, and heads to flood plain.

    3600: Zimbabwe expands (already). I let it use a bonus grassland (BG) until the flood plain is ready, the shields are useful.

    3550: more exploring ...

    3500: I found the Mongols, north of the desert. That desert will be useful to keep opposing settlers at bay. Lot of jungle, but enough good city-spaces for a while. They have CB, but need nothing we have; too bad.

    I attached a map on here. I noted the great city-spots that I would vote for ... of course most of them are offmap, but you get the picture I intended to irrigate with that settler this turn (3500). I'm assuming we're beelining to philosophy; it looks so far as if we'll have a chance, since the mongols don't seem to have made first contact yet.

    I suggest making the first city the one to the E/NE; that'll be a great spot. Try to settle it such that it can use one or two of the floodplains for quick growth, but i'm not sure if that'll work or not.

    Good man! I'm at work but I'll see if I can sneak in turns during lunch - otherwise, must wait 4 hours or so..

    However, if somebody wants to drive by and play 10 turns in the meantime, have at it!!

    Thanks, Snoopy.

    I picked up this game from Snoopy...

    1 3450 Borders of Zimbabwe expand. 1 Worker starts irrigation. 1 Scout and 1 Warrior explore N and S.

    2 3400 More exploring.

    3 3350 More exploring.

    4 3300 Mongol explorer shows up at 4-4. 1 Warrior finds FUR!. 1 Scout finds IVORY by Mongols.

    5 3250 1 Worker finishes irrigation, moves to 9-9 for mining. After pop goes to 3 I move squares to be cows and 2 grassland-shield to finish Granary faster.

    6 3200 1 Worker starts mine before road. 18 turns for Alphabet.

    7 3150 Alphabet drops to 15. 1 Scout finds N Coast. 1 Warrior finds a cow nicely placed near the FUR.

    8 3100 Russia pops up, offering CB for WC. I renegotiate and try to get Alpha plus CB or BW. Can't do it. I take CB+BW for WC, no cash either way. I see the Russia explorer to the SE of Zimbabwe at 3-3-2.

    Population goes to 4. I tweak the slider to 0-7-3 0G/turn to keep all 4 productive. This moves Alpha back to 17t. Probably bad decision now that I think about it. Oh well.

    9 3050 Explore.

    10 3000 Granary done, start Warrior 2t to calm citizens when complete. Maybe another Scout after that? 1 Scout pops a goody hut - Settler! Whover's next can figure out where to deposit him. Settler makes us go -1G/t on gold.

    -1G/t 0-7-3 37G Alpha in 15t Map to follow.

    Save attached for next player.

    GB, i'd say 0/7/3 is exactly right there - it's always better to lose a bit of science or gold in exchange for food+shields. How much do we happily pay for shields, after all, and you're exchanging 1gp/t for 2 food, 1 shield, and 1 trade (that gp!)

    OK - this game seems dead. I'm going to continue for a bit. I think I see the main land just to the east. I see where I can take this save.

    WHAT THE F#$#$ H#$$% I$# WRONG WITH THIS MAP GENERATOR F$%$## S^%#% D^$%%^!!!!!!!!!!

    I set it for PAN-F%$#%^&ING-GEA!!!

    Oh well 1400BC will be know as the year that two of our brave ships were lost at sea. One was lost just as the shallow waters were seen to the west.

    Here is the save. If no one continues. I will in a few.

    Good luck, friend Skrobism! Come on over to the No Obligation game and start taking turns there. Much more interesting, unless you like lifeboat movies!
