Also, that looked low.

Brave New World?


Yup.  Culture victory one turn before she completed her tech victory.  Got her hooked when she was on super bed rest during pregnancy, so we do a lot of hot seat games.
She also tried SFIV for the first time (first of any SF) and said she enjoyed it way more than her pacifistic, non-action-gaming self thought.

God, this is horrible... I want one cards win... Just one.

I just want four Dodgers wins.  If you don't mind the Cardinals having one, two or three wins, I think you and me can get along. =^-^=

Me too, and LA wins the other 4

St Lois Cardinals: we upgrade your baseball innings to supersize! At no extra cost!

Mark Ratner: Darth_Lukecash: Mark Ratner: Tarheel_Madness: Last two pitches were greinke strikes, not cardinal strikes lol

This. Pathetic strike zone.

Umps eye site got us a nonexistent tag...dodger rightfully had won this game. So don't biatch.

Jury is still out on that. I need more viewings of the replay


Just wait, every time they come back from commercial break they show it. The fact that it was a shiat call seems completely lost on them. It was a good throw, not a good play.

I was kind of hoping for 8

The journey of a thousand miles, etc.  Just worry about the next game (or the one right now, as the case may be).

Who has a bat boy who can pitch? They may run out
 
2013-10-12 12:45:08 AM  
This CS will be far tougher than the ALCS. Who wins this is set for all the flags, just MO.  Det and Boston?  nope.
 
2013-10-12 12:46:04 AM  
Come on, 30 innings! Fark the bullpens AND the rotations for the rest of the series!
 
2013-10-12 12:46:10 AM  
This hypothetical baseball game the announcers are describing sounds neat.  What channel's it on?

Olympic Trolling Judge: Just worry about the next game


Looking at the inning number, I think this pretty much is the next game >.<

ouch;  well BNW is definitely the expansion to go for cultural victory on, especially if you can get a monster like Brazil going;  Actually finished a cultural victory with the Shoshone earlier

/forgot what good bullpen looked like as an Astros fan
//I guess I'd rather have it be late in Missouri than on the west coast

You are generous, I prefer cards win it, of course, but I'm not gonna biatch if we loose it after going the distance.

But that's when things get fun.  When was the last time a playoff game featured a position player earning a decision?

Ahh poop....Lynn? Now I'm nervous.

Just did it with Brazil, actually.  She's shown a fondness for the Venetians, just hasn't been able to quite get it all together and win one.

don't know; had the Astros-Braves 18-inning game in 05 gone on longer OF Jason Lane would have pitched for houston

St. Louis is so dangerous.  So well seasoned.  Like i said, this CS will make Det/Bos look like a walk in the zoo

Who, in anyone's considered opinion has the pen edge?
 
2013-10-12 12:56:58 AM  
at least this game has been close and entertaining.

Come on, it's not like the game was tied and there was a good chance they'd need him for extra innings.

Go for diplomatic;  trade routes are so important that with double gold from them you can just buy every city state,  ventian with diplomatic is like brazil with cultural

Lt. Cheese Weasel: Who, in anyone's considered opinion has the pen edge?


STL, mainly because LA won't use thier best remainging arm until/unless they have a lead
 
2013-10-12 01:02:01 AM  
We are now entering our sixth inning without beer.  How long can the Best Fans in Baseball™ hold out?
 
2013-10-12 01:02:03 AM  

Lt. Cheese Weasel: Who, in anyone's considered opinion has the pen edge?



Well, St. Louis really only has Seigrist left who is their closer. They don't want to burn him without the lead. LA still has Marmol and Volquez who can give you an inning fairly easily, plus one more.
 
2013-10-12 01:02:18 AM  
Freese looks like shiat.

Yup, we aim to please...
