Great AAR. It inspired me the other day to fire up Civilization and start a new campaign of my own! My Godfathers! Is it addictive, or what? 8)
The most shocking fact about war is that its victims and its instruments are individual human beings, and that these individual beings are condemned by the monstrous conventions of politics to murder or be murdered in quarrels not their own. Aldous Huxley

Exactly why I hardly play Civ V, lately anyway. TOO easy to get sucked in. Though I really want to try this Scramble scenario...I've not played but one Civ V scenario, the Civil War one.

Wow.  A period of peace where not everyone seemed ready to DOW on you at the drop of a hat.  However did you cope?  :P

since y'all paying attention to the font page on your own - and apparently some of you can't even find it from the forums ;) (cough*ubercat*cough) - I'll point out that there's a new episode today

Rollin'...rollin'...rollin' on a river...  ;D 


So did that last screenshot indicate you're ahead in victory points, or was an indicator for something else?

I can't believe that no one had any comment on the puntasticlysm that attacked the last AAR...  you guys *do* know we have a front page, right?

Looks like things are chugging along fairly well.  I'm guessing you're doing whatever you can to max out culture and build as many farms as possible?
