Game version: Rise and Fall expansion (release 8 feb)
DLC Packs: The following packs are available and we need to establish who has what, otherwise people are unable to load the savegames that PYDT provides - Aztec Civ pack, Poland Civ pack, Vikings scenario pack, Australia civ pack, Persia and Macedon civ pack, Nubia civ pack and Khmer and Indonesia civ pack.
Mods: None gameplay wise, custom maps possible

Game mode: Hotseat, effectively turned into a Play by Email setup
Max players: As much as we can gather here, everyone welcome!

Nations:
01. Netherlands - Yskonyn
02. England       - Barthheart
03. USA              - OJsDad
04.

PlayYourDamnTurn!: PYDT is an automation service for turning Civ's hotseat mode into a Play by Email mode. It makes hosting and administrating an ongoing game very easy as the system handles turn/savegame distribution to all enrolled players.

First, you will need to go to www.playyourdamnturn.com and login with your Steam account to activate your presence on PYDT.
You will see a random token displayed on the page after you have logged in.
You have to input this token into the little desktop client (find it on the Downloads page) so it knows who you are. I *think* this client is optional, but I am not sure.
Secondly, you will want to input an email address on this page a little ways down, in order to get notifications of a new turn or other comms via the system.

The host will then create a game and it will get displayed on the 'Open Games' page.
You can enroll by clicking on the entry on the list. Select your nation from the game details page and enter the password I will have provided.
Click 'Join game' and wait for the fun to start.

Test Run: While waiting for Rise and Fall we could start a little bogus testrun, just to see how well the system works and get your account ready for use.

I won't have the expansion, but I do want to join: If there is enough interest to start this with only the base game I have no problem with either hosting a second game with only the base game OR if we only have enough players in total, but it would mean running only the base game, then that's how we will roll instead. I am just looking forward to having some Civ 6 fun with you all!

Dude, I just purchased Civ VI last week.  I didn't even know all of this other DLC existed.
