We played several nomad games this weekend and we had two players get eaten by lions before they built their TC. Needless to say, it was hilarious! Just wondering how many other people have had this happen? I've seen it three times now, but haven't played but about 10 nomad games total.

I have seen it happen once or twice as well. It isn't funny for the player it happens to. Fortunately, it hasn't happened to me.

I've played a few team games with the nomad setting and when someone was Kitty-chowed before the TC went up, we restarted. Taunting the quickly demised in the new game set-up with "Meow", "purr", "Poor Puddycat", etc., was much more fun than playing out the 2 on 1.

It is a stupid setting for team games. Basically it can happen to anyone. All that is needed is uncovering 2 lions and you are history (if they see you).

And yes, it has happened to me

TRUST ME!!!!! Nobody gets screwed by lions like me. I lose 3 to 7 villagers EVERY GAME to lions. 3 if I am sumeria and 5-7 with everyone else. I have asked everyone that I play with and they all say it is me. I have come to expect to lose 5. With regards to the nomad, I never move, I drop my town center right where I stand and then start the game for obvious reasons

I don't have as many problems w/ villagers as i do w/ seige weapons. They start attacking and the cats behind the one getting attacked lets a rock fly and bye-bye two cats. I've only been killed once by lions in a nomad scenario, it really sucks.

Nomad is pretty unfair all the way around. To have any chance you really have to scout around with your single viller. Putting your TC by some food is absolutly essential. Otherwise you will loose several minutes.

If you get eaten by lions in Nomad then you need to pratice scouting. IMO if you only have one vil then you should be able to see any lion before it attack. If you happen to find a Lion King, you need to be ready to run and look for a slope. The lions LOS is smaller than your vils LOS so unless your not paying attention, it should be easy to avoid lions.

As for the 2-3 mins you spend looking for great spot you more than make up for, when your vil don't have to walk far for wood or food. Unless you get a place with no forest nearby, you can always pick the ideal spot for your tc.
