Random would be fun... but might not work unless everyone has all of the Civ packs.

Wont the game know what you have for civ packs if you select random for your slot?
I am pretty sure it cant pick something you dont own.

Not only that, but there is a potential that the game wont be compatible with those who dont have the expansions

Everyone will need both expansions.
Civ packs are optional per player.

In the mean time I would like everyone to either post or PM me their Steam handle so I can crosscheck the invites.
Expect the game to go out on sunday .

Ok guys, the game is open to join.

Please use the following join code: xyvVB (click the button 'Use Join Code' button at the top right on the gamelist pane)

The game's name is Armchair Dragoons #1. Let me know if you run into issues. It's the first time I am setting a game up via the in-game asynchronous setting, so it might be hit and miss on first try.

Excellent!  :rockon:

Looks like it will be a grand game!
I’ve configured for a Large Continents map, Heroes enabled, Monopoly’s and Corps enabled.

Otherwise normal/default and no duplicate nations / leaders allowed.
