So the board spoke to me, and it told me that since I never posted before to come here and introduce myself. I'm benyar, and I'm a terribly old-school Civ player, having played since May 2010! I mean, can you believe it? That's longer than lots of people have been alive! I'm pretty good at the game, too, I can routinely beat it on Chieftain! I know that's good because (a) it's second from the top of the list, and (b) I know there aren't many chieftains anymore in real life, so those that do exist must be very smart! OK, seriously, I picked up the complete Civ 4 on the cheap a couple of months ago, found some friends who play about 3 weeks ago, and have been awfully hooked since then. I'm still horrid at the game but love it enough that I've preordered Civ V. I found this forum because every question I have about the game, when googled, leads to here. I registered here a couple weeks ago so I could use search, and hey... this is a nice place. So um. Yeah. Hi. Thank you!
