I went out and bought Civ3 a week or so ago - I loved the other ones, turned based games are better if you've got work to do and can leave board alone for a while. But I have a few questions Is there a way to put it in the background? You could do this with CivII, but I can't seem to do it now? Its a lot tougher than any others, anyone got any good advice on getting up and going? Combat is more difficult and there doesn't seem to be an easy way to figure out if you're going to win or not. I'm routinely killed by weaker opponents.
