I'm wondering if anyone is up for playing a multiplayer gamelike Moo3 or EU2 once a week. I was thinking a couple hours oncea week on the same night. We could basically play untilcompletion. The "small cluster" galaxy in Moo3 or theFantasia scenario in EU2 would be good places to start. Anyoneinterested? I've read the Mac/PC versions of Moo3 play togetherbut I'm not sure about EU2. How about Sundayafternoons/evenings/night?
Sounds fun, count me in. I'd prefer EU2, since I've played MOO3for all of five minutes. Those five minutes didn't impress me,so I've been waiting for the patch to get into it :)
I have m003, but haven't played post-patch; it would beinteresting to try it with human opponents, though. Most nightsI can work around, but anything on Sundays would depend on myweekend plans - Sunday night being the preferred time.
I would be willing to give it a shot in a small game (3-4humans, a like or slightly larger number of AI?), with strictlimits on any one game session -- preferably not more than 2hours, say 9:30-11:30 pm, *maybe* 9:30-12:00. if we can stick tothat timetable, I'm good on just about any night (though Iprefer to leave Fridays and Saturdays open).
I've played multiplayer pre-patch, but only in a cooperativesense--allied with a friend against a bunch of AIs. I'ddefinitely like to try human opponents.Forcing a fast pace on turns and battles makes things prettyinteresting, I find. Even with only 2 1/2 hours per night, ifyou put a 5 minute time limit on turns and a 2 minute limit oncombats, you can still progress pretty far.
Yeah, I think EU2 might be really neat to play multi (I don'tthink you can pause the game). As for Moo3... post-patch, thegame is MUCH MUCH MUCH better. There are still some bugs... butI think they probably killed 150 or so (!). One advantage thatMoo3 may have over EU2 is that the Small Cluster galaxy isactually pretty small... I think about 100 stars. From what I'veseen with EU2, all scenarios are on the same map... which isvery large.
