For those of you who may have glanced at this thread and thought there's no activity here, that might be partly because I also posted the same thread at all the multiplayer sections of different sites, as well as Civfanatics, CivLeague, Civ Webring, Steam, Facebook, you name it, and people have been replying in various places. The more exposure the better to spark up some interest and get thing going.
I'm talking to at least 7-8 players mostly all through email who are more or less serious about joining this group and playing regularly, and in other threads I have started very informative conversations where I talk more about the game, based mostly on their inquiries/ concerns about it.
Here's the link to the thread at Civfanatics (in the Civ 5 MP section... don't ask), where alot of that info has been stirred up:
And here's a link to Civforum.de where some more activity is abuzz:
So take note, take in the info, and take a stab at Civ 2.5!
