Could I create an interactive playthough thread on /vx/ that would be recurring, centered around an civilization 5 hotseat game I'm playing against myself? I'm running all the players in the game, and I'm playing them as fairly and to the best of my ability's as I possibly can. The game would take a few mouths to finish because I'm playing on the slowest speed, but I feel like it has the potential of being a cool ongoing game in witch the anons on this board could lead one of the country's though all the intense volatile political situations that arise as the game goes forward. There are some things in the game I could do to add flavor, like name the religions after things like KEK or Luna, we could name the citys and units to characters from mlp(which I have recently cought up to season 7, and I am a fan).

Just wanted to ask to see, because it would like like a general thread from the outside, and it's a really slow game(1 real game turn = me playing all the other nations first(10), and the game goes on for 1,500 turns(so really 15,000 turns for all countries) I plan on playing 10 real turns a day, so the game will go on for nearly half a year. BUT it would be a consistent evolving game that would be a community effort, something people could get excited about and check back in to discuss what to do next in the game. And there would be memes of course.

I'm in favor of this. You have the blessing of the Denver Broncos provided you name one of the religions after them.

Awesome, The game is still deep in the stone age so nothing really is happening yet, but in time things like the cursades/proxy wars/ territory disputes and all kinds of fun stuff will happen

I feel like the anons on this site will turn the civilization I give them into an imperialistic religion driven empire, in the name in sun pony of course. Praise the sun!

I think this is really great idea! However I also think that most people would get bored of it in about a month. I think that would happen because it would take a lot of video time until something interesting happened.

I would recommend making the ingame time go a little faster so we get to see some happenings and action often enough so it would be worth watching.

It helps to be more interactive with the game, that probably keeps it interesting

>making the in game time go faster
I wish I could, but for every one real turn I play, I play all the other nations, so if I play two real turns(say a farm takes two turns to be completed), I have to make decisions for the other players, so really, I have to 20 other nations turns before the farm is completed, and it get's tedious fast because early game turns may seem to go by fast, but it takes 100 turns to get ten turns to pass, and I'm playing to the best of my ability.

As for the game getting boring, sure, people might lose interest for a few days, but it would be in the background, others will take up the slack and over time it will be like a episodic show that keeps growing over time.

The latter eras, medieval/renaissance/modern era will be more exciting, especially since I'm controlling all the players, it will be far more interactive then a normal single player game with AI who are brain dead.
