So I bought the game a week ago and finally had a chance to sit down and play it on Sunday.
Wow, I really like it!! I've never been into these types of games, but this one's fun. Talk about time flying by without knowing it. Stayed up way too late last night.
Played the tutorial level and got through that in an hour or so. Last night I tried the next difficulty and got myself a cultural victory!! Only after sandbagging it for many turns with my mighty army, though. I thought for sure the computer was going to dominate--I could hardly win any battle at the beginning. Then, I turned the corner and started stomping on everyone.
I'm sure the computer will put me in my place when I try the next difficulty. Games are good at humbling me.
