    Gramps, this is Advanced Start. That means you get points you can use for building cities, units, discover techs, build improvement and buildings, etc. Log in again and spend your points!

    Awesome Btother, just didnt want to offend anyone.

    one other thing, is it 24 hours or 36?

    I see 36

    I personally would love 24 but 36 is ok, just some folks can not keep up with 36 so will defer that decision to others as i pretty much stated my stance, play early, play often!

    Not to worry Gramps, I now have 53 points - and I DID do something...so you should zip ahead of me in no time!

    Thanks for all of your hosting efforts Zoid! It is much appreciated!

    Correct, but no way i would have done what was done to me

    I would never have set my civ up this way. overlapping cities with poor terrain. Excess worthless units

    Gramps, you must've pressed the Begin button by accident. Then the computer spends your points for you (and very poorly I might add...). But if I'm willing to reload the turn if Wittlich agrees (we're the only ones to play yet), everyone should have a fair chance IMO. No fun in being ****ed from the start...

    I thought I had to click that to begin to put units

    Sheit

    Oh well

    lessons learned, although would like to know for the future what i have to do to select a unit and place where i want?

    Too bad... You have a box at the bottom with different tabs where you can choose things to build. If you set up a game on your own computer you can try various settings, I think it's under custom games in the setup screen.

    Going to try to claim this morning. Otherwise I'll grab him tonight.
    I'm not conceited, conceit is a fault and I have no faults...

    As always, will play after work. I wonder if I'll ever be able to turn that the other way...

    How do you guys feel about a 24 hour turn timer (it's presently at 36). Wittlich, GT, Hercules and Indiansmoke says yes, but we need to be unanimous IMO.

    Well, I see that Pinchak took Mongolia (Kublai Khan) and not Carthage ... so with that, I guess we are just waiting for Dreylin to login and assume control of Carthage (Hannibal) then.

    It's good to be back around. Now if Steam would just let me actually log in.

    "Our servers are too busy..." blah blah blah.

    I'll keep trying tonight to get in. No clue when or if I'll be able to though.
    I'm not conceited, conceit is a fault and I have no faults...

    As always, will play after work. I wonder if I'll ever be able to turn that the other way...
