The game begins at 10:00 AM EST, and will be livetweeted with the hashtag #OntoCiv, and streamed on Twitch! Hannah, Matt, Cameron and Amsel will all be streaming on their own Twitch channels, and you will be able to see a composite of all four streams here.
Also, as you can see, as of 1:36 PM EST on the 19th, we do have one spot open! If you’re interested in taking this spot, e‑mail Bill Coberly at firstname.lastname@example.org! You will need to have the base game, Gods & Kings, Brave New World, the Babylon DLC and the Wonders of the Ancient World DLC. You’re welcome to join even if you don’t think you can play to the end of the game (which could be a very long time from the start), or if you have to join us a little bit after 10:00 AM!
In the meantime, good luck to all participants, and we’ll just have to see who can build a civilization can stand the test of time!
