Civ V - "Aloha 'oe" [Complete]

CB's 'Rock the Kasbah' game got me thinking the concept of everyone being a single civ is a pretty cool mechanic for balancing the game. In that spirit, who's interested in joining me as a Pacific islander? That's right, in this game, everyone will be Polynesia.

I'm thinking Tiny world, archipelago, strategic balance resource distribution, no CSs (because how much sense does it make for Quebec City to show up in Polynesia?) quick game pace, Classical Start.

Anyone care to join in?

    I'll invite you guys as soon as I create the game, which will be in the next day or two. Anyone else who's interested in welcome to join, since we have plenty of spots.

    I have been holding off on participating in multiplayer Civ 5 games, but now have no more excuses (picked up the expansions on Humble Bundle). I'll get this setup tonight and presumably my username will be Tushon or it'll be automagic through steam.

    FYI Tushon Polynesia is an extra DLC purchase, unless you've got all civs already unlocked with that humble deal.

    I got the Gods and Kings and Brave New World expansions. If it's extra from those, meh.

    At least I was kind enough to warn you. Ghoosdom has earned quite the reputation for starting games with extra DLC enabled without telling anyone. Cost me good in-n-out money.

    It's happened like one time, now. Kinda annoying. Hate that guy.

    QFT. ghoosdumb is a douche.

    In this game I'll make sure that only the Polynesia and G&K/BNW DLCs are enabled when I start. ;)

    I started the invites. @Tushon do you have a GMR profile yet? If so, what is your steam username?
  • TushonTushon I'm scared, Coach Alexandria, VA Icrontian
    I don't have polynesia expansion and am not planning on purchasing it.

    Also I found your steam username. ;)
  • TushonTushon I'm scared, Coach Alexandria, VA Icrontian
    Indeed you did. Thanks :)

    Should be in GMR now with that name ( {IC} Tushon currently) via the sign-in through Steam option. If there is more I should do, please point me at the appropriate thread or portion of GMR website.
  • GHoosdumGHoosdum Icrontian
    That seems to have done the trick, I was able to invite you to the game now.
  • GHoosdumGHoosdum Icrontian

    Does anyone have any additional requests or rule suggestions before I start this game?

  • NiGHTSNiGHTS San Diego Icrontian

    Custom .xml to enable complaints that the American nation is holding you back and you'd like to still be a kingdom would be a nice touch. Could try to work it into the attrition penalty somehow.

    Sorry I'm late. If there's still room @GHoosdum, I'm in!

    @Gargoyle - Oh heck yeah there's room.

    @NiGHTS - That sounds fascinating, hilarious, and fun. If only I knew how to do that!

    @PirateNinja - I just noticed you haven't joined yet. Waiting for a space to open in your GMR game rotation, or did the invite not make it to you?

    I would like an invite if that's possible still

  • PirateNinjaPirateNinja I don't know how to not Icrontian

    My badness, somehow I didn't see the email. I'm in.

    Did we get invited already? I didn't see an e-mail... Though it Seems I didn't get any emails at all from GMR for about a two week period ending last week, which is crazy, as I usually get three e-mail a day at least from various comments and such, so I think something was borked.

    Weird! I must have missed you in the invites, or maybe you're right about a bork. I just invited you (again?).

    Wait a minute, are you interested in joining this game or not? I can't tell, and I don't want to make a mistake and owe you TWO In-N-Out trips! I'm on a budget, you know!

    What's GMR?

  • GHoosdumGHoosdum Icrontian

    GMR is "Giant Multiplayer Robot" - it's how we're playing the multiplayer Civ games. You can sign up with your Steam user ID, then I can add you to the game: http://multiplayerrobot.com/
