Second Cutthroat!  We Go Primeval On You!

This variant we call Cutthroat.

Five kingdoms, five players on Resurgence.  Claim a spot in the game for your persona and a kingdom (one per zone).  Once five players are in, based on the time stamp of the fifth player, you have 24.00 hours to change your kingdom selection if you like.

So for example, as long as you claim Red Dragons, no one else can after that claim Red Dragons until you give it up.  24:00 hours from fifth player in, not 24.01.  Doesn't matter if I monitor, anything after 24:00 is disregarded. 

You have other choices in Primeval games as well: $35 all in, doesn't count as a game slot, or $10 setup and a game slot.  Specifiy your preference when you claim your position by posting your interest here on this thread.  Primeval games run a max of 24 turns if not won earlier by Rex or Usurper.

Instead of Silent, the Cut Throat version has restricted forum only diplomacy: only after turns 1 (not 0), 4, 7 etc., no alliances, and no trading.  Chivalry (+25,000 gold for players who haven't podiumed - finished a 10+ player game in the top 3).

Take advantage of the Cut Throat intrigue of being able to shift your kingdom in the closing 24 hours based on your competitors preliminary selections.  Give it a go!
Is there a resource that shows the Kingdoms and their starting regions?

I'm interested in trying the Primeval game with the $35 setup fee, if that's allowable with my service level. I'd like to play the Elves, if they're in the Primeval scenario.

One link on in the folder above has never worked for me. Don't know if anyone else has that problem with the Kingdom Summary Dossier PDF but it won't load for me.
Would this game have the player elimination after turns 6,12,18,24 as described in the post for the first game as something for future games?

If not I might switch out of the team game and over to this one. I just would hate to wait for the game and then be out after a few turns.

How frequently do games start? I'm itching for a non-duel game!
Players were not enthusiastic about the cut throat part of Cutthroat, so there are no player eliminations mid game.  Just you can post your kingdom, and when we get to five players you have 24 hours to change your selection (or any time before the fifth player joins).  So part of the fun is gauging which positions will be in play and where to situate yourself.

This is a good game for newer players.  Or for an all-experienced player game.
I will sign up as the nomad, using a slot.
This game is recommended for our newer and non-podium players.  I'd ask that only those players sign up for this particular game: only players who have not yet finished in the top 3 in a 10+ player game.  Take advantage of the chance to hone your skills against similarly experienced players.

So far:

Paganknight  -  EL
Devildog       -  NO
Calidor         -   deciding on kingdom

If Calidor is in, two spots remain.  Zones 1 and 10 taken.
As the team game seems stuck... I might move over to this game. Just trying to figure out which kingdom would help stop Devildog from spanking me like a newborn!
