So I've never really played strategy games. Not since the early versions of Sim City (I had it on the Spectrum!) and then Theme Park on the Amiga. I picked up Civ IV, with the expansions, a few years ago but didn't play it until this weekend.
I loaded the game up at 5.30pm on Saturday to try it before the football and eventually turned off at 5am. Then spent most of Sunday playing as well. I love it and am well and truly addicted.
I went through the tutorial at the start but I'm going into this completely cold in terms of my knowledge of thw game or of the series (or genre, really) so I was wondering if anyone had any basic tips. Just a few bullet-points really for how I should be going about the game and what I should be looking for.
Also, do people have any suggestions for other games I should try, either on a low-spec PC like mine or maybe using Online (I think Civ V is on there).
