SONM Summer Civ - Civ V Multiplayer Game - 22nd/23rd August

It's time for a SONM game of Civilization V! Read on for the info, then post here to sign-up/register your interest. (Please note that, unless we have a large number of people asking otherwise, we will be playing with the Brave New World expansion.)

We'll be playing...

Saturday 22nd August, Sunday 23rd August
and the evenings of the following week to finish

Game Rules

- Brave New World enabled
- Quick Game Speed
- Continents
- Hybrid Turns
- Quick Combat
- Quick Movement
- Complete Kills

(map size tba from number of sign-ups)
(number of AI (if any) tba)

House Rules

- Random civ choice
- Prince difficulty
- Subs allowed *

* Due to the length of Civ games (requiring multiple play sessions) and the difficulty of getting everyone playing to be online at the same time, we're going to be allowing people to substitute in and out if required or desired. So if you can only play the first session, for example, you can then be subbed out for another player who will take over your game. Alternatively you might only be able to play only part of a session before having to leave - in that situation someone can immediately take over for you. Hopefully this should mean that we will be able to play the game through, even with people having other commitments and time restraints. If it becomes impossible for everyone to play, even with subs, we will fall back on letting the AI control someone's civ.

Sign-ups

- OrangeRakoon
- Spilskinanka

When signing up please use the following list of August dates to indicate when you will be available (as far as you are aware):

Random civs? Bah. Oh well it's a casual game after all

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31

This may be subject to change (evenings etc) but those dates I definitely can't do

I guess I'd be up for this.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31

Also, chances are I'll have a work program appointment next month, so I'll update this once I've confirmed the date for it (most likely on Wednesday).

I'd be down for this but I find that, and i'm sure you all do, the longer the game goes on the harder it hits your computers. And then once the disconnects start happening its all down hill. Will post dates shortly.

Also if you want to match up dates use http://www.doodle.com

I'm free most evenings though. So just name a date.

I'd be interested in this if I can make it. Though is having hybrid turns still up for debate because while the benefits are obvious it does mean that turns are going to take so so long, especially with presumably a very large number of players in the game and potential for multiple wars going on or wars involving more than just 2 civs at once.

Non-turn based combat in Civ is a horrible mess though, and basically breaks all strategy.

Will take a look at doodle, cheers

Hopefully computer impact will be minimal if we end up playing on a small map.

I'm up for this. Not played Civ since last summer so it should be good fun.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31

I'll edit it later on if necessary (but it's highly unlikely I'll need to)

Your call at the end of the day but i'm just thinking in terms of wanting to get the game done in a reasonable timespan if we do go beyond the first session.

Also from the top of my head:

I'd like to be up for this but my internet does not like me playing Civ with other people. :(

<Princess> that's effort

OR, I can't do the mornings of the 5th, 12th and 19th anymore. Got some courses to attend on those days.

Updated sign-ups and available dates. It looks like a good early block we could play a whole game during could be Sunday 9th followed by Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights (10, 11, 12) to play through until game finish.

Later in the month there is the weekend of the 23rd/24th followed by a whole week of evenings, which could work very well too.

What do people think? And of course more signups could change it too.

This is how it stands currently, although it may be subject to change (although leaving my job makes it a lot easier).


Also random sieving is the best sieving.

I don't really make plans so far in advance, so for the most part I have no idea what my availability is, other than those that aren't strikethrough. But otherwise yeah sure lets go.

22nd through to 28th looks like it could work out. That's basically a whole week.

Good call, it's just less certain as its later out, but should hopefully be able to work. Anyone else want to weigh in?

Kind of an odd question, but can we rename our cities? Just wondering.

Yeah, of course! Just editing in list of people now...

EDIT:

So, looks like we can settle on date(s) for this

Saturday 22nd August, Sunday 23rd August
and the evenings of the following week to finish

So a few weeks away yet, but I'm sure it'll come quick!

There are currently 8 of us signed up, so that'll be a normal sized map I think? Unless we can fit 8 on small. Of course more sign-ups are still welcome!
