One More Turn, The Sixth and Final Season: 19 Episodes in 2018

By | December 6, 2017

One More Turn The cast and crew of the dramedy podcast series One More Turn (OMT) are breaking their silence. Their plan was to publish the show’s sixth season, thirteen episodes in length, in 2017 — that plan has changed. Instead, it will be published in 2018 and extended to nineteen episodes. The reasoning behind this is in reflection of the difficult part of its delayed release: the show’s sixth season is to be its last.

Join One More Turn as its geeks dealing with non-geeky problems take their final turns.

PolyCast Episode 295: “Intersection of Mechanics”

By | December 2, 2017

PolyCast Crossover. The two-hundred-and-ninety-fifth episode of PolyCast, “Intersection of Mechanics“, features regular co-hosts Daniel “DanQ” Quick, Stephanie “Makahlua”, Philip “TheMeInTeam” Bellew and ”MadDjinn” with returning guest Jason “MegaBearsFan” Grade. It carries a runtime of 59m59s.

The summary of topics is as follows:

02m22s | Open Mic
Listener feedback on one topic in particular from Episode 294 prompts further, extended dialogue.
15m42s | Senate
Breaking down passive and, in particular, active means of spreading religion in Civilization VI.
24m52s | Research Lab
What starts as an examination of the suggestion to add Great Athletes to CivVI morphs into something with a different focus, on a greater scale.
32m39s | Forum Talk
Greater than, less than and equal to: evaluating trade yields in Civilization VI.
37m49s | News
The availability of the board game Civilization: A New Dawn is fuelled by both a first review and comparison to its immediate predecessor in the space.

Intro/Outro | Miscellaneous
A major announcement for the show marks a period of transition about to begin.

PolyCast is a bi-weekly audio production recording live every other Saturday throughout the year, in an ongoing effort to give the Civilization community an interactive voice; sibling show ModCast focuses on Civ modding, TurnCast on Civ multiplay.

Civilization Players Civ6 Podcast #12 Civ6 Rise and Fall!

By | December 2, 2017

This past Friday, Dec 1st at 9 PM EST was the 12th CivPlayers League Podcast. Here’s what we talked about in the past  week!

Co-Hosts Sarnith and KingLewie, and guest Co-Host Harambe, BladeSe7en and Roven, bring you this weeks topics.

• The Expansion has been announced! Will it fix problems, or just create more? Tell us what you expect!

• The CPL Challenger Series is upon us! 8 Players have signed up to duke it out on balanced maps to establish dominance. 1:35:30

• God of the Forge as a pantheon is being revisited!? It’s been default banned with a vote to allow it, but now people are saying it’s not a big deal – What do YOU think? 1:16:40

• Siege units such as the Battering Ram and Siege Tower [which are really support units but hey, who’s checking?] with units past the medieval era? What about my poor walls? 1:22:35

• How would you rate each civ? What if the bot drafted you a civ list with civs from each “tier”? How would you feel about it? Who’s opinion would be used to determine such a thing? 1:29:40

• We normally vote to have barbs on or off for a match. With the recent merger, we made Two separate staging lobbies [Barbs on, and Barbs off] – This has shown that Barbarians no longer lag the game out of control and a LOT of barb games have been happening. Do we still need these channels? Or now that we’re aware that it’s fixed, can we return to voting as we did before? 1:42:10

• Catch us at YouTube live at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIw6b7qVvkbA27lXUYLJjNg

CivPlayers Podcasts are recorded live on Sarnith’s Youtube Live every Friday at 9pm EST  Sarnith’s Youtube Live

ANNOUNCING CIVILIZATION VI: RISE AND FALL

By | November 28, 2017

Firaxis have an exciting announcement for us today:-

“Civilizations are not set in stone. You can’t just do all the hard work in the beginning then expect your culture to stand the test of time, unchallenged. It’s not like that in the real world – or in Civilization games. The expansion we’re announcing today, Civilization VI: Rise and Fall, adds new dynamic layers onto the game you’ve already been enjoying. On February 8th 2018, you will lead nations to golden ages. You will watch others buckle under their own weight. You will earn – or lose – the loyalty of your people. The question is, “How will you be remembered?””

Read all about the expansion here and join in the discussion here.
