Long Live the Queen – Dream of Mars (Turns 321-330)

Right! *Cracks knuckles* Since it was last my turn, I’ve switched to a new PC and so redownloaded and setup Civilisation VI again. I’m sure I’ll find the odd default setting against my preference I’ll need to change as I go, but I remembered the most important one for this game. Turning off all DLC!

Time to Loot Journal: July 2020

July is over. August is here! Normally — it would be the time of Blaugust. And it still is, in a manner of speaking, but we also did classic Blaugust earlier in the year as Blapril. So rather than a repeat, Blaugust this year is a Promptapalooza! And Belghast has already kicked us off with

Long Live the Queen — Gilgamesh Had it Coming (Turns 241-250)

Right. Enough is enough. Gilgamesh is about to get a rather nasty surprise. Namely — I’m going to take Adab and Eridu from him. They split our territory, and so rightly should be claimed in the name of the English people. No more Gilgamesh — you are about to learn why the world considers our

Time to Loot Journal: May 2020

New Zealand has seen at least the promise of a return to normalcy this month. We’ve run a consecutive streak of 9 days with no new cases. There is in fact only 1 active known case in the country. While there is still an acknowledgement that the risk of silent spread remains present — as

Long Live the Queen — War and Peace (Turns 161-170)

Since my last turn, war has come, gone, and come again. You can read all about it in the posts linked here. The people of England also found religion. You would think this might temper our warmongering instincts, at least a little. Especially because said religion is Buddhism. But no… Had I the collected military

Long Live the Queen — Science and War (Turns 81-90)

Here we go! Back around to me, and the world has seen some exciting changes since I was last in the saddle. You can find a list of everyone’s turn stories here if you want to get caught up but the one most important fact: At the beginning of Kanter’s reign both France and Brazil

Around the World in 80 Turns

Maybe not strictly true within the context of the game. After all, while In our Civilisation VI Blogger Succession Game we do in fact have an exploring ship — we haven’t yet settled anywhere off the mainland. But it may be true in a player sense? We have representation from the US, Europe, and li’l

Time to Loot Journal: Blapril 2020

While not something I’m going to dwell on — I think I will at least acknowledge that the COVID-19 lockdown is finally getting to me. Not in any serious, major ways. Rather just I note that my motivation levels are down, with each day increasingly more difficult than the last to get down to doing
