    "Razzledazzledya" sounds good.

    Have to figure out a way to do it first tho', so's I can git to use it.

    BTW gotta beg for mercy. My office walls ain't soundproof and I LOLed too much for my own good over a few of the recent postings. Ease up on the funnies, guys, or you'll be gettin' me sacked!

    PS Finbar. How about using the names of individuals as well the groups' names? Then there's the session musicians, the guys in the recording studio - cover artists maybe - still think there's a challenge in there somewhere. Laughing too much has wrecked my stamina tho' (also being stuck in this dreary spot at 6.45pm) so don't have the energy to work it up.

    Good point. Trouble is, Darlene Love sang lead on most of Phil Spector's Girl Group singles. Except the Ronettes, of course, where Ronnie Spector (his missus) did the job. But Darlene was the Crystals, etc.

    I once did a civ with Capital then Boiling, Hot, Very Hot, Warm, getting Warmer, Cold, Very Cold, Freezing etc. etc. I randomised the names to confuse opponents

    Once, playing an MP game against my sister, I carefully built up a great SSC with copes ikes and shake's (No collosus though.) Then, a spy came up to my city, and renamed it TOAST. You can guess what happened next (Damn those stupid CMs.) She paid dearly though. Her SSC with the colossus was visited with a different type of missile. Mwahahahaha!!!

    ROTFLMAO... I wouldn't trust any city name that Xin used

    Yeah, there can be misdirection, but many of the people I play with have a set naming pattern. I like to vary mine enough to keep people guessing. I'll even change names of cities a few times during the game just for fun (and yes, I once did name a city Southwatch to "attempt" to fool somebody into thinking he had reached my empire... it was just a lone city from a hut... He captured it a few hundred years later)

    sounds like a neat way to misdirect someone too (ie name your frontier cities northwest instead of northeast or whichever is away from the approaching units) Kind of like that Boston thing Xin Yu tried earlier in the thread

    If I ever get hold of a "Raz civ" I'm going to have city names like "RazWithSugaronTop" and "RazWithaPuddininhisBelly".

    Au contraire Finbar. That looks like the next challenge to me.


    Mais oui, East Street. The key is finding a theme with the legs to carry you as far as you wish to travel down the city building path. Malheureusement, the Phil Spector 60s Girl Groups theme had so few legs as to be ... well, a virtual amputee.

    On the other hand, I've had outstanding success with the Fruit theme, Vegetable theme, Cut of Meat theme, Make of Car theme, 60s Bands theme, Human Body Parts theme - people are usually loathe to attack Lower Colon - and so on. The only downside with the food related themes is that sods like A. Horse tend to attack when they're feeling peckish.

    Surprised noone has mentioned the city names of the Great Raz:

    North, South, East and West Raz, Slightly South West Raz, etc. etc.


    Whoooaaaaaaaaa there, Horse. After the four basic compass co-ordinates - N, S, E and W -Raz tends to opt for city names like Pert Little Breasts, if you recall. In actual fact, when I subbed for him in a diplo game, I built a couple of cities and added the compass variations - South West Raz, North North East Raz, Bit Further South Raz, etc. He weren't amused.

    in terms of themes, i usually don't have too much of a problem keeping them alive indefinitely, after all, i only need to come up with at most 255 right? Of course most of my themes are pretty broad (cities in Texas, planets in the Star Trek Universe etc), or if i'm bored, renaming the 'extra' names to continue the city names of my chosen civilization in the city.txt file (only takes a nearby atlas ) Then there was the time I named my continents and numbered the cities on the continents (Sol-1, Sol-2, Sol-3, Centari-1, Centari-2 etc) Only problem with that was incorperating captured cities into the numbering system - having Sol-14 coming before Sol-2 on the city list for example) anyway, once a naming theme starts, i always try and stick with it to term
