    Hi All.
    Picked up CivV on Steam and played the hell out of it with my kids. Moved on to six a while ago and have been lurking here to up my game a bit. Now I’m out of the woodwork.

    My first "Civilization" game was actually the original Colonization. I played that in the eighth grade, even found a way to play multiplayer with my sister (a sort of hot-seat, we spent the first 1,000 gold on a second Caravel, she took the soldier and I took the pioneer, we would rotate with immigrants and keep track of our individual export income). Then I got the original Civilization game and have been playing ever since. It's the only video game that I put any real time into (occasionally I'll play something like Sim City). I had 2,000 hours in Civilization 5, but have (finally!) made the full conversion to Civ 6 now that we have the new expansion.

    I used to play multiplayer with my father on a regular basis, but he doesn't seem to have the time for games with me any more. I'm too afraid to play multiplayer with random people, because I generally prefer co-op (or at least not hyper-competitive) play. I would never attack a human player, only AIs, for example. I've gotten rather lonely the last few months and at least felt a need to talk about things with people who share a similar interest.

    Hello all. I'm David, one of my all time favourite games is SMAC, didn't really start playing Civ until IV and V came out shortly after which I played to death.

    Currently trying to find my way around VI and there's a lot I wanted to talk about so finally created an account after lurking on and off for while. Seems to be a most excellent community. Happy to be here.

    Greetings, everyone!

    I've been a fan of 4X games since the time Empire was released for MS-DOS, hopped onto Colonization and Civ I and haven't looked back since. SMAC still remains my favourite simply for its flavour.

    Greetings
    Actually registered a few weeks ago but have barely posted so I guess I can also present myself

    I started with Civ one when I was at high school (civ ii was already out but my pc was not strong enough to run it), and played quite a bit and Civ I/II and other 4X games (Master of Orion and Master of Magic in particular) before getting more addicted to paradox games.
    Played only a little bit of III and IV and didn't played V at all, and actually stopped playing 4X games for a long while, but last year started again, this time in my iPad, and since January started playing quite a bit of VI (also some of Revolutions II)

    Hi !
    i'm Aryan ; a Telecommunication Engineer from Iran . back in school my friend introduced me to Civ 4 (it was just released at the time) and i got addicted to it ever since . after civ 6 came out , i didn't like it so i continued to playing civ5 brave new world till i found out about all the new features in "Rise & Fall" which changed my mind and now i play it all the time . i only play Earth maps , i have played so many Random maps before but i didn't like any of them . lately i've been making more accurate earth maps through World builder and i'm here to share those with others . i've played so many earth maps that i can detect where on earth i am at the very beginning of my games without moving any one of my units in any map size (LOL)

    G'day everyone.
    Long time Civ player who has been viewing/reading the civfanatic forum for a few years, but never thought I was fanatical enough.
    I have been playing the game since the days of Civ1 in the early 1990's and have religiously purchased every update since, although I no longer have Civ1 or Civ2.
    I'm really interested to see how Civ6 is going to develop with the new expansion coming out in February. The idea of dams and canals is quite exciting.
    I really hope New Zealand is added, because then I can start an antipodean war and finally wipe out the All Blacks.:lol:

    Well hey.

    Name's Carl, I've been a functional Civ addict since 2008 but played bits since Civ II. I've been lurking on this site for years (it's an incredible strategy resource) so I figured I'd finally make it official and create an account. Baba yetu, etc etc.

    Hi everyone.I am from India.I just finished my school.Coming from a Country with very interesting history hooked me with these type of Games.I started recently playing Civ 6 then I played Rise and Fall.I liked this game because I like to imagine human history as a movie and Civ make it possible.I aspire to be a diplomat/Civil servant so that I can play civ in real world.I really like civfanatics as apart from game I get to know what common people around world think about different nations.

    Hi there, I've been playing since my older brother and I taught ourselves how to play Civ 1 with no manual! And after a long Dark Age, I'm getting back into the franchise.

    Looking forward to GS!

    Hey all!

    Thought I’d introduce myself here too!

    I’ve lurked the forums for a few years and really enjoyed reading the opinions of other people. It’s amazing to see the intelligence and passion of the Civ playerbase and it seems much nicer than your average “fan base”

    I started with Civ V but really got hooked on Civ VI. Play Multiplayer mostly, and usually witb friends but do enjoy some AI games too (usually on Emporer or Immortal if I’m feeling adventurous).

    Nice to meet you all, and thanks for giving me stuff to read on the bus to work.

    Edit: As a fun introductory fact, I’m Scottish and live in Edinburgh but I’ve yet to play Robert the Bruce. Guilt!

    Welcome aboard.

    FYI, my daughter graduated from the Univ. of Edinburgh a few years ago. Nice excuse to spend way too much time visiting her over 4 years.

    Ah thanks!

    That’s a fantastic uni and a lovely part of Edinburgh too.

    I’m gonna get a game in as Robert today. Endure those bagpipes haha. (My dad plays them so I have some pretty irate memories of his practices in the room next to mine!!!)

    Shame on you.
    I used to live in North Berwick (not so far away) and have never managed to play a full game as Robert either, yet at least.
