    What nation should I play?

    I'm taking a break from my other games and I feel like playing V2 again.
    What nation should I pick? I want to play a nation that I've never played before.

    This is a list of the nations that I've played so far
    - All european nations besides the balkan ones, france, switserland and UK
    - Japan
    - China
    - Panjab
    - USCA

    Any tips? I find uncivs a bit too boring post-AHD. There is literally nothing to do during the civilizing process. Or am I missing something?

    Play a German or Italian minor :P

    Play the USA? Or maybe Colombia and form Gran Colombia?

    Uncivs were always boring until you civilized. Unless you enjoy watching your military score go up/down a point for 10 years (pre-ahd). Typically, I turn the speed up to 5 and

    With Columbia you can create Gran-Columbia now. You could try releasing Canada/Ireland/Australia as UK and play as one of those countries.

    Creating an australian indonesian empire sounds very tempting.

    Montenegro and Tripoli seem really boring (and hard!).

    Canada and Ireland are both great fun, USA is also fun, although it peters out after 1880, as you no longer get special events and so on.

    Try some of the American nations. All of them are civilized they satisfy your demands :-) And as they are democracies they'll be different from what you played so far.
    Esp. Mexico is great to battle the USA.

    France isn't a bad game. Chile would be my south american vote, but can stagnate late-game. Play Mexico and conquor the USA, also fun.

    Form India as Sikkim.
    Create Poland within the first 30 years of the game.
    Conquer the OE as Tripoli
    Survive as Texas and conquer the USA/Mexico.
    Play Mongolia and take back what was once yours. (I recommend increasing assmiliation, otherwise its boring)
    Play Johore and become 1st.


    If you've done all of these, come back and ask for more

    Playing as one of the Boer countries (Oranje or Transvaal) can be fun; South America is also fun since most AI nations (other than France and the US) seem to ignore it and there's plenty of neighbors to beat up... err... make friends with,

    I can recommend trying to form Germany as Austria. As you are the German underdog compared to Prussia, this makes for some interesting wars and alliances to achive.
    In my game i almost failed, but was saved by France suddenly declearing war on Prussia at the right moment.
    But on the other hand after you form Germany you become the nr1 superpower in the world.

    I had a lot of fun playing with Oranje. You're in a nice position to take over Transvaal, Zulu and Madagascar.

    From there on you can do a lot of things. Conquer the Portuguese African parts? Go all out and try to take South Africa from the British?

    I managed to turn an Oranje with 30.000 people into the 5th world power spanning most of Africa and parts of India

    I've tried uniting it with Panjab in AHD. I was civilized by 1890 (!) at which point I had such a technological disadvantage that it wasn't feasible to form it anymore.

    No more uncivs for me.

    Releasing and playing Australia is alot of fun. Conquering Indonesia takes a while but is worth it. Unfortunately Australia's only culture is British so when you conquer Indonesia your population skyrockets with unaccepted cultures. I was at about 8% British in one game. I ended up changing my accepted cultures to make it easier.

    It's been suggested before, but I really like playing Canada. If you're up for a challenge, you could do Quebec or Columbia.

    The best game I've ever had was AHD Brazil.
