TQcast: This is my first time playing a turn by turn game, and also the first time playing a Civ game. Going right into the game I was a little overwhelmed by the whole outlook of the game. There was just tons of stuff you could do with your nation. There was a bit of a learning curve. A learning curve that was worth the time once I got into the game. The game was huge and the level of detail in the decision making was phenomenal.
