Hey I won the Hyperion game with the Aztecs, starting on a peninsula with 6 usable land tiles in the fat cross and then desert for the entire rest of the peninsula. I don't knock any nation anymore. :D

And, despite several selections I didn't see coming, I may yet still end up having to pick between the same couple of civs I figured I'd be picking between from the start!

What a pile of civIV MP has taught us is that for the most part, the civs are well balanced. That is also a function of the game being fairly well balanced, in that one trait is not over-powering.

 

The Maya, with financial and industrious, are often viewed as the 'best' combination, but there are a lot of very good civs out there. I struggled picking the Portuguese, as I dearly wanted a financial civ for this map. But, I have never played Joao, so I am looking forward to it.

 

We could have an 18 player game, and the person picking 18th would still get a decent civ.

 

Which makes me think - maybe we need a misfits game. Remember those. That is where there are two draws, one for draft choice, and the second, like a Xmas gift draw, as to who you will be picking for. The object then is to what you think is the weakest civ to give your 'draftee'. In this manner, you get to play those civs you would never pick. :D
