wieder, I love team games because there isn't nearly as much of the "diplomacy" and "you backstabbed me" stuff.
New players FYI: the last team game, LT35 was very simple of just two teams: http://forum.longturn.org/viewtopic.php?id=547 . I highly recommend it. The new players get to watch how the experienced players do it and it's in the best interest of experienced players to teach them. There's a lot of team work, which I love. So this is my preference.
Otherwise if you're doing lots of little teams, it gets complicated how to select them. And the number of winning teams/player should depend on how many players we get. But yes, if we got 30 players then around 6-9 winners is about right, in my humble opinion. However you decide to select them, I'm confident you'd do the best you could to make it as fair as you can.
Thanks for starting the conversation now and all your work as admin!
Yes, I agree.
An old LT player made this:

So I'm a LT veteran and my son has watched me play some games. We started playing https://play.freeciv.org/ against each other. Now he wants to play LT.
I'm wondering if it's ok to allow him and myself to play this game with me. I will most definitely be helping and teaching him and looking at his screen and him also mine. We may even play at the same time on different computers. He lives with me and it will be of course be from the same IP address when we are both home. He hasn't made an account yet, but will if it's ok if he plays.
I can take myself and him off an winners list now if someone objects, no problem. I always try to win, but would be more fun to play with him than win. Post here or if you'd rather object privately, send a private message to me or admin.
This has happened before in LT30: http://forum.longturn.org/viewtopic.php?id=52.
Thanks for considering,

If you can't beat them, join them. If you can't join them and are going to get beat... then burn all your cities to the ground before they get them!!
Caravans are evil and nobody wants to play a game with this mess again.
I will vote to set flag nobuild to caras and frigs. It is quite good to let players build wonders without help of caravans.
Agreed and interesting thought. I like the idea! Too much of the game is spending building the darn things to build wonders... then maybe wonders could be cheaper but would be riskier to build.
To follow on this thread... you can definitely capture caravans and establish trade routes. As wieder captured one of my ally's caravan and instead of disbanding it established a trade route with me! lol But the trade route eventually got replaced. Probably because he got a better one.

I would still be interested in *how* to best do this. I know team that is using the best will not share their secrets (and get mad at me for asking) but if anyone else can share, it would be welcomed.
I'm planning on capturing my first caravan in the next few turns, so hopefully that turns out well.
Thanks for the post! Great to hear from you! Of course it's always ok to ask on the forum!
How was the reply? Pretty easy, and straight forward. Which is how the other post could have gone... but no...
And I guess you're still mad at me and the rest of us for still trying to figure it out as a community how to best play LT37?
