  • OK, here is one for the rulemakers. Suppose we start a game with 4 players, then one drops and never comes back. Can we still build the Great Wall?

      But many may not agree with this
      I've come around to Rah's way of thinking on this. I used to be dead set against Hutfinder, but that was really because I was a Mac user and had no access to the software. But I have a PC now. Add to that the fact that I'm too damned lazy to draw up charts, and Hutfinder starts to look pretty good.

        • I guess I could ask Rah to photocopy or scan his charts for me...

          Actually, doesn't matter. I have fun either way.

          • Refering to DD's original question, I have no problem in a four man game where a person drops and a human builds the GW for a few reasons. One, it could already be built before the player drops so I don't see much difference. And more importantly, the AI will just build it and force peace treaties, walk up and bribe your cities. An annoyance I can do without.

            • In addition... if you happen to be the "lucky" guy next to the now AI player, it might be useful to build GW to protect against the single elephant attack per turn

                • It means the AI is stupid, and will continue to send a single unit against you each turn until the end of the time instead of waiting and building up a larger and more impactful army. The AI is truly stupid in Civ II

                  • Hutfinder is wrong. So is blackclicking.

                      I'm with you, but unfortunately I use it now just to keep up with the other guys. I really only use it the first few turns to try and find a good starting spot. After that it is a huge chore.

                      As for black clicking - I don't do it.

                        • I only usually use hutfinder at the start also, after that I forget about it.

                          I usually only blackclick by accident, with the exception if I'm getting ready to settle a city away from my home area that has a whale in reach, I sometimes blackclick to see if a city is already using it.

                              "... clearing settlers of work every turn to double their efficiency. "

                              Would someone please explain how this works?

                              • Before your turn ends just click on it. This clears what they're currently doing. On the next turn assign it to continue the task. They'll complete the task in half the time. I can't remember for sure but I think this was only effective in 2x production, but it's been a while since I played.
