    1. The neighbour's goldfish always beats you at Chieftain level.
    2. After 65 years and spending $24,000,000 on Civ2 psycotherapy you build your first city - ever...
    3. ...Only to have the barbarians destroy it 2 moves later.
    4. The AI civs kick you off your own game and vote you stupidest player of all time.
    :blush: :blush: :cry: :rolleyes:

    7 - You wonder what button to click to start anew game.

    8 - Your main defence and offence unit in 2020 is the Warrior.

    9 - After weeks of posting on this forum you still can't figure out how to build a new settler to found another city...

    10 - ...hell, you don't even know you can build more cities!

    I"m guilty of that. :eek: :D (sometimes ;) )

    17: you never (or rarely) play above warlord difficulty level

    18: you rely heavily on the civilopedia and the tech tree to figure out where you want to go--and still can't decide

    19: You didn't know that settlers can build roads until you accidentally hit the 'r' key on your keyboard.

    27 - You wonder what "that camel unit" is good for, "since it can't attack".

    28 - You found all your cities on mountains because you want the best defence bonus...

    29 - ...but still lose because your citizens starve to death...

    30 - ...and wonder why.

    31) You can't wait to build Eiffel Tower and become friends with all the AI civs.

    32) You keep losing out on getting Wonders because you think you have to build each in the year it was really built historically.
