Fort Civlopedia Entry by fatgordy posted Nov 5, 2016 at 11:30 AM I haven't felt the need to build a fort in any of my games yet. They only give +4 to defense strength. So does that mean I just get 4 extra strength points when I'm fighting with units that have strength of 40 or so around the time frame that I can build them? What does 2 turns of fortification mean? Does that mean I get double the fortify bonus there? Is that good? I'm apparently not understanding some obvious benefit. Have you built forts and if so, how did it work out for you?
