    I am definately a newbie. Today is my first day playing. When i play I always get the statement that my gold is low in the treasury. How do I go about getting more gold? Thanks.

    want to trade world maps?
    lower your spending on Science and Entertainment (in the Domestic Advisor screen), and/or work tiles that generate more commerce (in the city view screen, click tiles that have roads and/or are next to rivers). Build roads, and locate cities near rivers or coasts.
    Hope that helps,

    Also, don't build more units and improvements than your income can handle...use a few warriors to explore and find those minor tribes and barbarian encampments (they've got gold sometimes!).

    And don't forget to check if the other Civs are willing to give you a small amount of gold if you are trading for something. Sometimes, if you trade tech for tech you can get between 10 and 50 gold.
