Civilization 6 was released a little over a week ago. I have owned every major Civilization games since the first one; so it was a done deal that I’d buy Civ 6 too.
I confess that I barely played Civ 5 though. It was simply a matter of not having enough free time. I am hoping that won’t be the case this time around. On Friday night I stayed up until midnight – just … one … more … turn…
Civilization remains as addictive as ever.
More challenging too. Perhaps I am a bit rusty, but in my first full game – even set to the easy Settler mode – I got my butt handed to me. I ended up resigning because I just couldn’t continue in any meaningful way against the barbarian onslaught. I went back to replay the tutorial mode and to pay more attention to the advice of the advisor.
My current game is doing much better now, but I am still struggling a bit to maintain the upkeep of my units. The delete button does not appear to work; so now I am paying for units that I no longer want or need.
I keep forgetting that you can no longer stack units. This often screws me up in a battle. But I will get used to it eventually and make better decisions.
Just watch the opening trailer movie in the link above. Narrated by none other than Sean Bean, the opener never fails to capture the imagination and inspire.
Hopefully I don’t stay up until midnight tonight. There are other things to do this week!
