I recently bought a copy off of Amazon, and haven't been able to get away from the computer screen. After figuring out, finally, how to take screenshots, I've decided to share a playthrough. For those unfamiliar with the franchise, linky goodness: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civilization_4 In short, it's a turn based Empire-builder with multiple victory conditions. They include the following: Conquest and Domination Science (via winning the Space Race, colonizing Alpha Centauri) Culture (basically spamming World Wonders in your cities, gathering 'culture' points) Time (having the most overall 'points' by 2150AD or so) Diplomatic (everyone likes you, never gone this route) Given this is SB, of course, I fully expect players to want a Conquest or Science victory, but you never know. Civilizations will follow in the next post. For this playthrough, I'll be using the 18 Civ Earth map, for those who've played before.
