    I've followed this site for years (and learned so much strategy from everyone here that I am forever thankful for!), but only felt it necessary to create an account recently. I'm an avid Civilization player from Oregon, USA, and have been since Civ II.

    Hello. I probably registered a few years ago to download civ iv mods (FFH, Dune Wars, Planetfall, all excellent). Started playing in grade school with the original game, been playing since then. Felt like saying hello, now that my excitement for Civ VI is leading me to browse these forums more.

    Hello! I started with civ 3 around 12 years old. Had no idea 4 existed, so when I saw an article for 5 in the paper (front page) I got so excited and bought it "opening day" (which also got me into steam).

    Hi all. My name is Cl(which stands for chlorine) from Hong Kong. I first started playing Civ I on SNES when I was in secondary school(when i was 14). Then I jumped to Civ IV 7 years ago and Civ has since then become my favourite series. Nice to meet you all.

    Hey everyone,

    Stated playing with Civ IV and put so many hours into that game. Never got CiV, but seeing Civ VI has gotten me so excited about the franchise again. Feel like I've watched every Let's Play that's came out and found my way here looking to learn more as VI seems very complex/strategic. Also hoping to play the game at a higher level than I ever played IV. Looking forward to speaking with many of you on here!

    Hi everyone. I'm in the northwest United States. Have known about the Civ series forever, and my adult kids have played it for ages, but this is the first time I'm buying it for myself too. Very excited!

    Hello all. I love the CIV series. I started on CIV III. I love the game style. I never have gotten very good but have passed many days enjoying this game. I have been trolling civfanatics for the past 5 years. Picking up different strategies here and there to explore. Thought it was time for me to register and let all know I may have to take tomorrow off of work. That is how much I enjoy playing Civilization!!

    Hi all. I started with Civ 1 25 years ago and also got Civ II then Civ III. I accidentally sat on the CD for Civ III and broke it and never bothered to replace it. I had a long layoff until I switched to a Mac and downloaded Civ V and became re-hooked on the game. Civ IV (with pretty well all expansions) was on special offer so I got that a little later. However, after playing V the interface seemed clunky and the maps nothing like so good-looking so I only played a few games.

    Looking forward to Civ VI of course!

    EDIT: I forgot Alpha Centauri! I played that around the turn of the millennium but preferred the "vanilla" Civ games.

    Been playing since the Amiga days.

    Discovered this place and had a blast playing a modded up Civ 5.

    Time to fire up Civ 6!

    Hello, been playing since the very first civilization, and played them all (except colonization). I had an account here about 5 years ago but lost my password and no longer have that email so I just created a new account. :)

    Well hello. I have played Civilization since Civ II (apart from Beyond Earth which I bought but didn't enjoy at all). Apart from Civ, I don't play that many games, over the last few years this has been pretty much the only one (apart from pointless mobile games).

    I don't expect to be posting that much on here but thought I'd introduce myself nonetheless. I think I joined already last year but for some reason the forum never let me in until now (I vaguely recall I had problems receiving an activation email or something like that). Back then, I probably had a question which I've already forgotten. :D

    Hi,
    I am new to the game, have a few months CIV 5 experience though. When I played CIV 4, I used the Editor very often to cheat so please don't count that experience in LOL

    I look forward to the MP side of CIV 6 mainly because such experience was missing in CIV 5, I guess that's because I was a late comer in CIV 5 so no body were actually active enough online, bought it just less than a year ago.

    I may ask stupid questions because after all I am very new to the series. I will also crazily post some of my experience up without a very good presentation nor great writing skills because I am not quite literate but have great interest in history. So do excuse me if ever I wrote something meaningless. :D

    Technically, I come from RTS genre, most notably is Rise of Nations + Thrones and Patriot, Company of Heroes I & II, Age of Empires II (LONG LONG time ago). I don't play FPS seriously, except maybe Battlefield 1 but don't expect me to be loyal to that cause that doesn't require thinking and the use of strategies.

    Also, I used to be a big fan of adventure games, point and click, Syberia I & II, The Black Mirror I & II, Fahrenheit, Moment of Silence, Overclocked, which I have played them to the end.

    I tried to play other turn-based games like Sin of the Solar Empire but couldn't bear some of its features so gave up in the end.

    But I like CIV series. Had a couple of hours already online, and great experience though I am still very doggy about how district plays out but like one of the added features of borrowing CS's military when request, really useful and logical as far as a simulation is concerned.
