    Financial & Spiritual! A good combo for a civ. Its special unit (skirmisher) is cheap and good to endure the game start.

    Maybe there is a better civ, but this one is appearing to be a good choice ;)

    Greeks, just because Im an Ancient Greek fanatic, but I'll guess I'll eventually go to Germany if their tanks are better than the other civs, like in Civ 3

    Without a doubt, the Mongols, Genghis Khan is the greatest ruler to ever live.

    In-di-ahhh, as Gandhi. In Civ III, I usually played Cleopatra but in IV things have been shuffled around. I like being able to build improvements fast, and I hate anarchy. (That might be less awful now; ISTR that you can discover how long disorder will last before deciding to make a civics change, and back off if it seems too onerous.)

    Somehow I find playing unfamiliar countries/leaders a more attractive option in IV than in III. I'm not a highly skilled gamer, and tend to choose whichever will be most forgiving of blunders. In IV, I have a feeling blundering about will have more dire consequences, but there's also a good deal of appeal to nearly every civ available. Anyone else feel that way?

    I started playing the japanese. ( since in civ3 I could not exist without the industrial ability, I have tried ) But I am very disapointed in teh Samurai unit. by the time you get it it is allready obsolete. So I now pretty much play the chinese.
