Don't know if it would make a fun game report. I think it's very lame for you. You can't do diplomacy of course, so all players are playing very dumb and na´ve, on Maarten's automatic pilot. So also all of them with the same stragegy. Most interesting for me is who will win, why, and how much difference in points there will be between the different players.

The difference seems to be steady where the top player has around 1.5 times as many point as the last one. (Except the one dead player of course. He was scouting with his only warrior and the neighbouring civ, who did the same, saw an empty capital from a hill. )

I started playing EU4 couple of weeks ago but have not spend a lot of time on it yet. Besides that I've been playing Runescape for the past 3 years or so, the many quests are mostly enjoyable stories by themselves.

It could have been more fun to have every civ playing according to a certain style. Basically mimicking historical civs and making the best of their respective advantages.
Better: You could have scripted the whole playing style for all civs, and let them play against each other!
Oh wait, why aren't you building an AI?

Been playing Dungeons of Dredmor a lot after summer until I defeated Dredmor himself, albeit on easy mode. Also played a lot of EU IV, will return to that once I have more time on my hands.

Lately: Starcraft and Hearthstone when I'm not working, which is what is consuming most of my time these days.

I keep returning to SC2, I play a lot of 2v2 with grs. I still suck at it like crazy even after spending so many hours playing it but still enjoy the game.

Got a Hearthstone key from grs two weeks ago or so. Very good casual magic the gathering clone. I have a feeling that I'll spend a lot of time on this game in the future. It's TBS but a game takes maybe 5 to 10 minutes which makes it easy to play a quick game. The draft mode is brilliant, entrance fees can be paid both in real and in game money but you're garantueed to get a booster as a prize no matter how you peform. If you play a few (4 on average I guess) games each day ,you can buy a booster every other day or enter draft every 3rd day approximately. A very reasonable setup, let's hope they keep it this way after beta.

Your last question answers the other two. Then you might as well be a spectator of AI's playing against each other. This is to see how my most naive style of play will work out against itself.

I don't think it's a good way of improving one's tactics, though. You learn most from other players in a multiplayer game.

Unlike TrackMania, where I also often play against myself. That definitely improves my skills! (Basically I'm unbeatable now among friends, which is actually kind of spoiling the fun.)

Shabba, I sometimes play some OpenTT; with a series of add-ons and extras that's the best TT clone there is

I've made a few maps with challanges for a friend; I can share if you're interested.

Been playing various bits and pieces in the odd moments when I get some time. I did play all the way through Antichamber which I enjoy and have now made the mistake of downloading Plants v Zombies 2 onto my tablet...

I don't know if Killer meant OpenTT or OpenTTD, but for the latter you can actually still use the original graphics if you have the DOS files somewhere. You get this option when you install OpenTTD.
