    I always finish, what's the point otherwise?

    Gotta try that cheat-mode-switch-to-an-AI-and-see-if-you-can-win thing...

    Very seldom one hour (only in the endgame on large maps, with many cities to micromanage)

    Boy, you're pretty fast, ST...

    Later in a game I'm trying to finish, I've done a day a turn... of course, most of the time is RL activities...or playing and watching TV...

    :) In ELG #2 there were also turns that took 2 hrs.

    And I don't count time I studied tech tree or prepared long time plans. But this was because I didn't play a landing game before.

    It started out as "University of the Slow and Ponderous", went through a stage of "Stompin on U", then settled back down to "learning slowly but surely". Getting PT was always a turning point, as I could then go for Mikes or early conquest. Plus I kinda liked Hannibal. Not the movie one.

    I see that most people don't always finish their games. It's that way with me too. I play until I'm sure to win (like most other people do), and just abandon itl.

    Sometimes it takes weeks between each Civ2 session, so I forget what game I was playing...;)

    I think that another reason why I don't finish all my games is the desire to do better. Once I have a reasonable start, most of my game flows along rather well. I can run a boat chain once it is there and can use engineer creation fields to fertilize new sites but it seems that my initialization of these requires more practice -- thus the need to work on my early game.

    Yes, there are fine points that I'll need to master in the middle & later stages of the game, but I still need to improve my play in the early stages.

    Rarely. The early game is the quickest part - and middle age tech race great fun. Once your civ is far ahead in tech, however, the micormanagement of all your cities becomes a little tedious and the game turns take so long. GOTMs are good for giving you a reason to finish and OCCs are better for quicker games and are probably more likely to be played to a finish.
