Hi! So.. I bought the game, so far I really enjoy it. But I know I am probably tapping 5% literally of what the game can do. I know there are plenty of sites out there where I can get information, and I have been and will be using those too. But lets hear what tips you guys can come up with, or any questions that need to be answered. Questions myself: I am always mid pack in getting to the next era, do the tech trees need to be memorized? and I shouldn't really just pick what I think might help me now or soon, but look into the future? How often do you build new cities, and how many new cities do you build/have in the first 50 turns? and does the more you have equate to better tech sooner? How many military units do you have around in the first 50 turns? When a city is starving, what can you do to help it? (I assume mine was because it was cut off from the Capitol. Which leads to another question) Can you trade to your capitol on roads through a civ with which you have open borders? Do you want a balanced city? ex. happiness, research, etc to win? or do you want to go one route and crush it? Wonders: What is a good way to guess if you are going to be able to complete a wonder? So the build time is not wasted when someone else builds it. A lot of questions! But then again this game has a steep learning curve.
