Never knew you were a fan? Always been my favourite game series, but not so much civ 6.

Tried the expansions and they were canny enough.

What you playing it on?

I loved the whole series up to 5. I’m worried 6 will be too much
Similar to the modern day FM games, once you’re in control of too much it gets stupid

Still play 5 quite often. I got 6 on release and found it dull, apparently much better with expansions but just haven't taken the plunge.

Same, I found 6 just wasn't fun. I was just churning through the turns with no real interest. So many of the bonuses are a pain, that it becomes almost a game of maths.

Mind, 5 was dull on launch too - the final expansion finally turned it into a great game.

I agree. I found 6 was just too much to calculate at once and to get the best position you had to bonus chase so I was building things that I didn’t need and things just to hit bonuses

There's a rabbit away with Civ though. Always has been - a city takes up about 50x50 miles of land - try large size earth map, and then try to start in the british isles, and you'll see my point!). Why do you get a bonus from placing a university next to a jungle. Is having jungle in your city's sphere of control not enough, does it literally have to be in contact with the university's car park?
All this adjacency stuff probably sounded great when they were thinking about placing zones - but actually, its bollocks.

A plot of land the same size as the city centre for a school, library and university? or some factories and workshops? That's stupid.

Also, a battle of 100 blokes with bats against 100 blokes with pikes takes about 400 years. Hmmmm.

The hangovers from Civ1 should really have been addressed a long time ago.

I think I just about preferred 5 to 6. Not really a fan of the way the district system was implemented and the cartoony art style wasn’t for me. The disasters and global warming from gathering storm was more a gimmick than anything game changing.
