    Just a quick tip, on increasing the Fog of War in Civ: don't look at the screen when the PC is playing.

    When I hit the "turn" button, I look away from the screen. I just look every few mns, to see if there's any dialog question. This way, anything the PC does, for me, is a "secret move". I have to figure out what the PC did... thus increasing the dificulty

    You can have that even easier:
    In the "Preferences" dialog, simply uncheck the check-boxes for "Show friendly moves" and "Show enemy moves"... ;)
    (This even has the advantage, that the interturn time is much faster, as the game does not even spend time on displaying all that stuff. I remember, in the old days when I had a slow Windows 98 PC, this was the only way to play the higher difficulty levels, because otherwise you would have to wait like 15min per turn until the AI was finally finished moving their brazillian units around... :D)

    ah yes, the legendary Preference Screen; so undiscovered and mysterious that only the most optimistic nomad will wander there without charts or guide.
