    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and totally new to Civ 5. As a matter of fact Civ 5 is the only turn based strategy game I've ever played. A few weeks ago I didn't know if I would like it.....now I can't stop hitting Next Turn.

    I have a lot to learn, but you'll find that I'm very teachable. I look forward to getting to know all of the Civ5 forum members. :) Thanks, Prozac

    Hi everyone. New member here but not really new to Civ. I played Civ II back in the day but then got hooked on Age of Empires, Diablo I/II, Guild Wars, and then the current Diablo III and Guild Wars II. Saw Civ V at the store and thought to myself "I wonder if this is anything like the game I used to play?" Needless to say I am hooked!

    Ummmm, hai.

    I've been lurking for a little while and figured that I'd finally join this place. I've kind of wanted a new community for a while, if only to widen my online circles a bit. I love my regular community but it's small and I've known the same people for years. It gets stale.

    I obviously enjoy the Civ games, but 5 has managed to turn me from a casual fan into a hardcore one. I mostly play on King/Emperor but tried the Immortal Challenge game, which inspired me to, you know, stop lurking.

    Outside of Civ, I enjoy reading books in any genre, video games (JRPGs are my biggest not-Civ passion), listening to good musics, American football, amongst other stuffs.

    I think I'll stop here. =]

    Hi!

    Been around this place as a guest for several years now and finally decided to join.
    I've played civ for a long time, 15 years at least, most of the games without a plan or thought at all, just for fun. It wasn't until recently i've started to care about difficulty level and stuff. I certainly learnt a lot from this place.

    English is not my nor My ipads native language, so beer with me if my spelling is incorrect! :)

    See you around!

    Hi all! I've been rediscovering Civ 5 again (stopped playing about a year ago - finally have time to play), and part of that involves this forum. I lurked around here for a day or two before I stumbled upon a thread that I just HAD to reply to. And so, here I am.

    Oh, forgot to mention - I got hooked on Civ a while back at a friends house with Civ III. I remember staying up almost all night (up to about 5AM) playing on my friend's computer. I was staying at his house in his room - I didn't really see any need to stop.

    Hi! I'm after summer 18 turning high-school senior from Finland. I got hooked on civ few years ago when I tested older ones(1 and 2) and finally found Freeciv. Just now I'm going to buy civ 5 and start ruling the world.

    I'm interested in girls ;), painting and drawing. I also play many sports for example football, ice hockey and tennis. I also hunt birds and like fishing. Yeah.. And I like almost every hobby there is except running. :lol:

    Hello. Brand new to
    Civ and beginning with V. Addicted already. No other game I've ever played could get me to sit down and focus on an over an hour long video to learn how to play when I can hardly wait to cut my teeth and just dig in…. any advice?

    Greetings,

    First of all I would like to let you all know that I am from the Netherlands and that English is not my native language. I have been playing Civ 5 for a few years now and I have to say that this is by far the best game I have ever played.

    I have been playing this game for hundreds if not thousands of hours and I just can not get enough. Also I would like to say that I have visited this site on numerous occasions and I would like to let you guys know that I find this site really informative and that I enjoy the way you guys respectfully communicate with each other.

    Shashka

    Hi everyone, this is my first post, have been playing Civ V for about 4 months and addicted...Favourite game has been archipelago as england with a brilliant naval fleet which saved me from ruin many times! Once you get the extended range and the 2 x attack upgrade on the frigate, the world is your oyster!

    Can anyone help me or direct me to the right thread?: I have a city connected to the capital with a road, and a city state is in the way but the road is complete and has been for many turns...why has a trade route not established?

    thanks in advance

    Hab

    You need to be friends (or allied) with the CS (Capetown) for the road to Montreal to form a trade route.

    Well... Here I am. Lurked for months, read... made notes... playing on deity now and finally feel the need to vent enough that I made an account. Cover your ears(read eyes), break out the toilet paper AND the tissues, brace yourselves, this could get messy.
