    I started out on Prince but had to wind it back to Noble. And will probably stay there until I feel I have a really good grasp of the game and the various strategic options.

    If I can play a bit, I'm playing Noble, it's a good balance.

    Playing on Noble at the moment (only my 2nd game, I only got the game on Friday). I'll probably move up to Prince next game, and then hopefully Monarch and Emperor. I played on Emperor/Demigod on C3C, so I expect Emperor will be where it gets really challenging for me.

    I didn't see that restriction in the poll. ;)

    You can count one vote for Monarch as a shadow vote if you like, though. :)

    My first game was at Chieftain. It was a cakewalk, even though I didn't know what I was doing. I even auto'd my workers. Second game was Noble. Built no military (oops) and got crushed by the barbs. I played Noble again, built a military, and micro-managed my workers, so I could learn something about tile development and city site selection. It was another (easy) spaceship win, and I had to force myself to finish it.

    I moved up to Monarch, and did pretty well for a while. I eliminated the Aztecs to the south, and took Munich from the Germans in the north. I made a series of mistakes, including researching military tradition, without having obtained the tech for knights first (so I couldn't build cavalry, which was the whole reason I'd spent eons researching it in the first place.) The Germans took Munich, and I wasted most of my - by now, badly outmoded - army taking it back. When the Germans showed up with cavs while I was still researching knights, and I realized all the cool stuff I'd built in Munich was gone, I decided to try again. :)

    I had a couple more early-aborts (poor start position, or AI's taking my land just before my settler gets there), but the game I'm in now looks very promising. I've built a series of four cities along a long river valley, with floodplains and a fair number of resources (stone, copper, cows, pigs, and fish). The Romans are behind me, and the rest of the AI's are to the east. My goal is to eliminate the Romans, to protect my rear end, and to gain some more land, but the Mongols just declared, so I'll have to tread carefully to avoid a two-front war I can't afford, and probably can't win. Fortunately, I have several "brothers in the faith," to the north. Hopefully, they're willing to help a brother out. :>

    The game is much more fun if you play at a competitive level, rather than just pressing the buttons and waiting to see what happens next.

    First game, on Noble, easily sitting on top of the score list, and then suddenly China came from nowhere to win the space race while I was still knocking seven bells out of Spain (#2 on the score list). Oops.

    Second game, also on Noble, well clear on the score list and having paranoid looks at whether anyone else might be catching up with me on techs...

    I have just received my copy of Civilization IV. Since I have never played the series, I am currently playing on Settler. The learning curve for the game is quite steep for a newcomer, trust me. And yes, I do like to play around and click on every button there is. :)
