First of all hello all - first time poster that has played Civilization ever since it's conception 15 years ago. But back on topic: I perfer to play the game in more of a roleplaying fashion than a conquest/war strategy game. For example I might not declare war on a nation to gain a tactical advantage if that action wouldn't fit in with how I am roleplaying the civilization. I will not trade with civilizations I don't like or have governments/religions that don't jive with mine. I will jump in a war to help an ally even if hurt me dearly. Does anyone else play this or play in a style different from the norm?
