    Yay for Seoul being a city-state!

    On the other hand, that may rule out Korea ever being a playable civ in the future, unless in the expansion, but I can dream.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to swap two units a la castling in chess?

    That would be extremely useful when you have an injured unit stuck somewhere blocking off your full health units, or a slower unit blocking a faster one.

    As far as I know, you can't do it "magically" (castling is a magical move in chess). On open terrain, with a two move range, you can accomplish the switch. On rough terrain, with just one effective move, you would have to triangulate the movement to retreat the hurt front line unit.

    Yes, you can do that. At least I could do it in the demo. When I moved a unit on top of another, the swapped places. I'm not entirely sure of all details yet, but you can try it out yourself in the demo. :goodjob:

    Hmm, I have not tried this, have to check it out. Once, I tried to move through a unit and they both ended up on the same tile, at least for a while (that was rather odd)

    Yeah, they can occupy the same tile as long as they have movement points left. They can't occupy the same tile at the end of the turn.

    The odd thing was the second guy got stuck on the other one, and for a while I could not get the guy to use his move to separate. Might have been a brief game hand, perhaps.

    One question for who owns the game, are there different game speeds like marathon and epic?

    This could probably be UN-sticky now.

    Or it could be left as a content list, so people who haven't moved to ciV yet know what is in it

    How come you can't play 2 players on the same computer like in the other civ games. This is like civ rev single player unless online.

    What Natural Disasters are there waiting for us?
    I ask as I just found what looks like a massive volcano, yet is described as a "hill".

    I don't think it's a natural disaster, I think it's a natural wonder: the Krakatoa. :)
