What's Your Civ Diet?

#1 Posted by Donos (1197 posts) -

So, I just got back from the grocery store, stocked up on orange juice, almonds and a 3 pack of sub sandwiches. I figure this should be more than sufficient for 12-14 hours of civing. Just wondering what the gb community has prepared to keep them alive through their addictions.

Gah, you people need nutrients to survive, you know? Am I the only person that collapses into a headache-fulled stupor without protein?

the key to a Civ weekend is sandwiches, get bread, cheese, condiments of choice, some ham or turkey, and make some tuna or egg salad ahead of time 
 
make sure you have  lots of ice t, or mountain dew, and for snacking some smoked almonds or cashews, gummy bears or jelly belly jelly beans 
 
snack your way to global domination, and when your famished it takes but a minute to whip up a quick sandwich 
 
im a veteran of previous Civ wars, i have experience in these conflicts and i have perfected the sandwich science

Good lord, I can't remember the last time I did that much gaming in one go.

I buy a couple frozen pizzas and cook them ahead of time and then toss them in the fridge (the bar fridge in my basement.  Needs to be close to the PC).  I just grab a slice during bathroom breaks.  That's what I did on my 12 hour Civ4 session during the summer.  It was majestic. 
 
Does anyone else only play marathon length games? Standard games are way too short.
 
I played about five turns so far but I have to stop for now.  I wanna play Civ5 so badly but I have work tonight and tomorrow and a test on Thursday.  After that test I'm going all out for the whole night.  And Friday.  And Saturday after work.  And ALL Sunday.  It's a vicious cycle.

Im officially making myself not available on the friday so that i can play Civ5 all day long. All the while throwing back half a dozen litres of Mountain Dew. And probably a celebratory pack of dorito's for when i crush the other civilisations beneath my mighty bootheel!
