Play the demo when it comes out tomorrow. Until then, here's the manual: http://www.civilization5.com/#/community/feature_manual

Civ in a nutshell: build up your civilisation from a nomadic tribe to a globe-spanning modern superpower. 6000 (I think) years of gameplay controlling how you expand, what you focus on, what you research, what you build; all while interacting with the other civs around you. Win by various means: conquest, economic, cultural or launch a spaceship.

As for playing with friends: most of my Civ experience (II through to IV) has been singleplayer though I have played Civ IV multiplayer quite a bit but I've found SP to be more enjoyable as you can set the pace of the game yourself (you don't have to wait for your friend to finish his massively long and complex turn before you all move onto the next one).

I really hope they improve the multiplayer from Civ IV, as the balance in starting locations was so horrific you basically couldn't play it competitively againist other people. It seemed like practically every game I played had someone starting on an island or similiarly bad position and falling so far behind in tech by the time they got caravels that they got completely steamrolled by players who had been able to trade since the beginning of the game.

It was still a lot of fun to play, but you had to ally and fight the computer players as you couldn't really fight eachother in most games.

Stayed up many a night till 2AM playing this with friends via LAN.  That hurts come 6AM.  I remember a couple years back playing this until 7AM with my wife in a game that got out of control.  Of course that is about the time my kid wakes up so there was no rest.  My only hope is that our computers are to shitty to run this.
