I wish I had Korea :(


Me too! :( I have it still, but because I purchased Gods and Kings through Steam and not the App Store, I have two different versions of Civ V. One has the purchases like Polynesia and Korea, the other does not. :(

Carthage is old as well. Don't see anyone wanting to get rid of it. Except us.

Furthermore, I think that Carthage must be destroyed.

Life sometimes forgets the biggest players
Are the most insignificant.
Sometimes you forget it yourself.
It takes people to remind yourself the truth--
All have an impact, a difference, a significance.
But sometimes it takes a break to reevaluate.

I like playing History in The Making, but in MP their change to Expansionist trait causes sync errors for some reason. You should try better BUG AI.

My biggest problem so far is that I don't expand quickly enough. I'll have three cities and plug along while the AI goes off founding their 11th.

You are now one of the lifeguards.
This involves posting in the thread regularly, flexing your muscles, wearing that white stuff on your nose, and saving people who drown.
Also running really slowly through the surf.

I don't see the fascination everyone has with a residential suburb of the capital of Tunisia.

I'd think people'd want to see Tunis destroyed, not Carthage. C'mon people, keep up with the times, cuz' they have changed a LOT since Rome was kickin' around.

I focus too much on building all the buildings and improvements.

I was having fun with Carthage(SO MUCH COMMERCE!) but I wound up starting in an area without any minerals so catching up militarily is very difficult. Slavery is awesome when you start with pig, fish, two clams and rice.

Through out history,
players never meet their full potential,
It's detrimental, and it drives people mental,
Some people have gifts they've just never learned
Others have ideas they feel they must earn
Makes me wonder, what is there never been a playwright like Ibsen
Or what if B.B. King never picked up a Gibson,
Just try to reach what you think you're called to do
With the laziness of the world, you're one of the few
So, phew! Who woulda knew, that the land of oppurtunity would be taking advantage off
By the people in charge who like to mismanage stuff,
It all ends up hurting the rest of us.

Nations are placed in random areas. It was on a Pangaea map, so it had no resemblance to the real world. So, the fact that Korea was in the middle of a desert says nothing about the Real World Korea. And trust me, I know Korea is not a desert. My family is from there.
