I've a good stretch of free time since Christmas that is ending soon and a lot of it went into this game. The actual playing is pretty easy for me, just the writing is hard. I can't match the other stories on this forum in any way with vocabulary or imagination, but I know very well how Civ 4 works. It is fun to peel back the curtain a bit and show to others. Hopefully I will win this game because this is the only write-up I plan on doing.
