Welcome to the second game of Civilization PBF #55! The purpose of this match is to provide more fuel for a discussion over which Civilization is better, a variant of Arabia or Rome. The original thread can be found here:

Arabia reloaded

55a can be found here:

Civilization PBF Game #55a: Arabia vs. Rome

This will be a Fame and Fortune with variants best of three series. Arabia will be represented by rdonoso, while pittpatt novecento has taken the role of Rome.

d10-1The game will utilize the alternative tiebreaker variant. Additionally, as a variant, Metal Casting does not provide a Coin; Railroad provides a Coin. Arabia starts with no Resources. We will NOT be using the Relic tiles.

d10-2Orders, notifications and all other correspondence will be done via the forum. You are welcome to send me conditional orders via email or PMs, but since this is a 2p game, I believe it will run much faster if you just post here (and I'll update as often as I can).

Setup
Turn 1, end
Turn 2, end

Here is an important addendum to the above rules.

PLEASE SUBMIT LEGIBLE ORDERS.

This request is aimed at one of the players. I won't name names. You know who you are.

...really? That's a lot of GeekGold. Would be a shame if someone ordered the shuffler to favor Rome...

Hey, I have a question: should there be a third installment of this, could I be Arabia? I think that would really test the proposed theory, as if I'm able to beat Rome (I have lots of experience... little actual skill) it'll really test if anyone could win as this weakened Arabia, even a low skill player vs a high skill player.

Sure, if Rome wins this we will have a third installment and I don't mind having you play.

Should I open a new queue for players who are interested in Rome vs. Arabia PBFs?

on a side note, Arabia's starting title is one of the best.

At least here they're on equal footing, Rome's tile is extremely good in my opinion (six Hammers, access to all four Resources, good Metropolis spots). Arabia's Natural Wonder AND early game Incense is pretty silly, though.

At least they don't have Iron on their tiles O_o
