    Conquests was 10 bucks at Amazon about a month ago.

    The poor people who I've told that to recently... alas, I remember their faces well...

      This kind of phenomena of scrusb playing game in a totally wrong and baffling way exists in every kind of game genres.

      hardcore UT/quake players laugh @ how scrubs play for example because its played with so lil thought and sooo in a wrong way.

      this is especially worst in fighter game genres.
      :-p

        Lord god.... I didn't think I'd ever see this thread resurrected from the abyss.

        As for a newbie FAQ, it wouldn't be a bad idea...

          To be honest, my problems lie with killing enough AI in time. And now that I've stepped down in map size and started ramping up through the ranks again, that may change soon too :P

          Random picks don't help much, mind you

            This thread was when I got the idea for "Winning Early" and then the Must Read threads, where it is, of course, included... I still laugh at the image of Catt reading the reviews in a boring Friday afternoon meeting.
            The greatest delight for man is to inflict defeat on his enemies, to drive them before him, to see those dear to them with their faces bathed in tears, to bestride their horses, to crush in his arms their daughters and wives.

              Hehehe, the Amazon... aham... "reviews"... are really good.

              That's an opportunity to invite all these guys to visit your forum and clarify them many basic doubts, besides a FAQ. Patience is a virtue with noobs, and sometimes you see some of these guys turn into really interested players.

              Although some of them seem to be not interested in learning about Civ3...

              Many are too deep in real-time strategy. Turn-based is fun... strategy in its purest state. Hehehehe

              Really nice topic.
