    If we start a new game we should do a smaller map so I can actually come in contact with dudes before 3 hours pass by.

    Yeah, I didn't think it was going to be -that- big.
    (That's what he said)

    I didn't even encounter @Skeith at all the entire game hahah.

    And I was at war with China twice and never even saw where her cities were.
    Oh well. I was still awesome.

    I think I was almost there-- you were punching America's shit in, right? I ran into a squad of three swordsmen.

    heres how i see it being a total win situation for you
    1. stay with your wife while she dog sits. this wins husband points since she knows its out of your comfort zone
    2. have sex all over her friends house so that the next time you see her friend look at you condescendingly, you can wink back knowing you did the freaky deaky where she eats her cheerios.

    wait how did you do that

    I captured a worker like 2000 miles from my territory and decided to delete him rather than walking him back. The game decided that it was going to auto select my knight at the start of the turn instead of keeping my current selection so he got deleted instead.

    Yeah, Civ 5 has a terrible interface. Half the time it feels like I'm fighting it instead whoever my enemy happens to be at that moment.

    It has a terrible interface
    And the AI is frequently ridiculously stupid. Not even pathfinding, which can be tricky with limited CPU, but just in general.
    And a number of other obnoxious things most places wouldn't ship a game with.

    Despite that, the game is still incredibly fun.
    Which lends it a lot of kudos, I must say.

    Actually I have a gift thing too, and have no idea where that one came from.

    This totally activates on Steam for Windows, by the way. The negative reviews on Amazon are people trying to activate the Mac App Store version of Civ 5.

    Losing in Civ II was awesome. If you died early enough you got this cinematic with archeologists finding a pot or something that says "<YourName> will return!"

    Always?

    Click a city. Then at the top of the city management screen, under your city's name will be a tiny word "Edit"
    Click it and rename.

    It's limited to maybe 12-14 characters, which is dumb, but still.

    Welp, lessons learned:

    - Mac version has issues. :-( Run in windows in boot camp I guess?
    - People DCing / reconnecting causes lots of problems
    - Random placement can be bullshit; next time I'm going to turn on abundant resources.

    Maybe sometime Thurs - Sun we can try again if people want.
