So, how is Civ 5, for someone who's played Civs 1, 2, 3, 5, CtP, and SMAC(X) ? Good ! Different - a bit slower-moving, and obviously lots of changes (cosmetic and game-play - e.g. the hex grid, and one-unit-per-tile rule), but I'm liking it a lot. And a patch has just been released which should improve the issue with AI turns taking a long time, even at the beginning of the game.
I'll try to check in every now and then to see how the world is doing without me.
And here are our kittens, being friendly :
