The intro is just too awesome

Too bad it shows vikings and Ragnar ain't in it...

I seem to have found an extremely easy way to win at this game(won't work on Pangea maps though)

1)Don't explore any of the ruins you find at the beginning of the game.
2) Get a pikeman or a similar unit that takes a very long time to become obsolete
3) Explore all the ruins with that one unit, leveling it up from the occasional "your troops have found advanced weapons" events.
4)Destroy your enemies with the mechanized infantry you now have in 500 A.D. I haven't tried it with cavalry yet but I assume having tanks would work equally well.

It might not be much fun to kill NPCs in this way, but it's pretty hilarious to make your friend think you're 1500 years ahead of him in tech.

I am :| Hi, and I am a proud owner of Civilization 5. I suspect with the coming weeks, that I will have many neardeath experiences due to lack of sustenance while playing this game. Thank you.

This is theoretically possible but will only work on a low difficulty level where the chances of advanced weapons are way higher and only if you are lucky enough to live quite far off since your AI enemy is hunting those ruins as well.

Cavalry is the end for your mounted warriors branch, so no tanks. Sorry.

I specified archipelago/continents specifically due to the fact that otherwise AI will go after your ruins. And although the highest difficulty I've tried it on was Normal, you only need a couple of lucky ruins to get the troops to level up thousands of years worth of upgrades with some units. Pikemen, which are easy to get early game, go to mechanized infantry in only 4 upgrades IIRC, and it's not like ruins are uncommon. Admittedly I've only tried it twice, both times on archipelago, but I don't see why it wouldn't work equally well if you had your own continent.

Just saying, I played it on the 5th level and I got in both runs of the game 2 upgrades.
On the other hand playing as Germans I got like 10% of the barbarians joining me where the game spoke of 50%. ^^

Civ V supports Steam Cloud, how awesome. I'm using two computers so it's very handy.

I've tried playing demo many times now but everytime my game freezes eventually. Today I was extremely lucky and was able to play 64 turns before it happened. Odd thing is it doesn't matter what settings I use, be it lowest or highest, the freeze will always come at some point. :(

Been in love with this franchise since the original Civ came out. If I may reminisce for a second... I'll never forget showing it to a friend and him and I playing it on laptops for the first time. Eventually I noticed that my shoulders were really starting to ache. I looked at the clock, then turned to my friend:

Me:      Hey man.
Friend:  Yea
Me:      Dude, its like 4 am!
Friend:  No, that's not possible...

Haven't bought Civ V yet because, while I meet almost all the min and recommended specs,  I only have an nvidia 9600gt. That meets the minimum but not the recommended graphics card.

Has anybody tried running it with that graphics card? I would like to know if it worth playing on my system.

I got a laptop from early 2009 with a GF9300m GS series 256MB and CIV works fine, doesnt look perfect but it runs good

My first nuke (and last) launched was on England, Elizabeth was being a bitch and kept storing troops right next to my border.
