I bought all of the DLC last time it was 75% off. There are some that you can get bundled together to save even more than buying each individual one. One of them is Korea and Wonders of the Ancient World - Combo Pack. The weird thing is when I go to the Wonders of the Ancient World store page it doesn't say I own it, but it shows me owning every one of the others on their store pages. I know I have it, it's listed on the DLC tab of the game properties, and I have the wonders listed in the DLC in my game.

My most memorable game(s) are from Civ III and the first Civ. My favorite is Civ III, although V is a close second. With that new addon they talked about a while back, it could take the #1 spot.

I liked Civ IV, but something never really felt right about it. I liked the idea of religion, but it didn't seem to have much of an impact. I tried playing as a militant Buddhist civilization and wiping out any civ that didn't adopt my religion, but I couldn't stop other religions from infecting my own civilization. The AI seemed too passive and wouldn't start wars, and if they did they only lasted a few turns. I played a game once to see how long I could go without building a military. I think I got into the era with gunpowder before another civ decided to attack me. I switched all of my cities into military production. I lost three cities, then as soon as I repelled an attack, the civ came to me practically begging for peace.
