    Hey folks.
    I presume that all players suffer from the long waiting times when there's lots of civilizations playing. Are there any ways to shorten the turn times? Would it be a matter of your computer speed even? Conquests is a real good game but the long waiting times just ruins it for me.
    Cheers,

    A faster computer helps.

    But unless you've got one monster of a computer, it will be slow with 31 civs playing, once a decent network of trade routes are up. I tend to shy away from more that 15 opponents for this reason (2.0GHz laptop).

    Eh, I've never played above a dozen, I'd hate to see what 31 civs does. It does annoy me that it's long enough for me to take a break to the bathroom/kitchen, but if I leave the AI could kill half my guys and I wouldn't know. I remember when I was playing Civ II on my playstation it had to be 10 minutes for AI to take its turn.
