As if you couldn't tell from the "GOne GOld" post on the main page I too have been following this game the past few weeks/months after first hearing about, then deliberately neglecting it a year or so ago.
I played the original MOO more than I did the original Civ, which says a lot since I played Civ almost 4 hours a day, every day for the first year it was out. MOO topeed that with the same general playing time and about a year more time added. Civ wore thin eventually, but MOO never did, well, until I plain burned out on it, but the game was fun every time.
In any event, count me in on a SG assuming there is still room and I can get a copy locally here.
One question, if we get the copy before the SG is organized, do we not load even a tiny small, experimental game first? broad smile
Should be fun, looking forward to it.
