Civilization V Pack Next Week

2K Games reveals plans to release a Spain and Inca double civilization and scenario pack for Civilization V on December 16, adding Queen Isabella and Spain and Pachacuti and the Incas to the turn-based strategy sequel for $7.49 USD. Here's a description of the included scenario: "The year is 1492. To the courts of England, France, and Spain come intrepid explorers, anxious to voyage across the Atlantic in search of a western route to China and the Indies. Will they find a new trade route and uncover untold riches from the Asian shores? Or will they perhaps run aground on undiscovered lands along their way? Will native populations be receptive to the knowledge and trade prospects presented to them, or will they fight against the invaders of their homeland? What riches, fame, and opportunities await those who brave the unknown waters? What path will you choose? Who will prevail in the struggle for supremacy over this New World?"

Am I the only one that never played any of the scenarios in any civ game?

I never do, either. Nor did I do them in the SimCities, although I at least tried them once or twice there. Never have in the Civs.

I never have either. I usually make a huge map with huge numbers of AI and just see what happens. Usually I take over whatever continent I am on and then try to win diplomatically from there.

I'm similar, although I never really do huge landmasses. Typically I'll do small landmasses, although now that I have BtS I'll sometimes cram an enormous amount of AI players into that landmass. Sometimes contienents, but I despise the water game so usually plains, inland sea, etc. And I'll start rapidly expanding, turn very aggressive when I get swordsman (assuming I didn't expand too rapidly to actually sustain), try to conquer at least one civ, then bunker down and try to win either diplomatically (which I have not done on higher levels) or the space race.


I've learned this works poorly for Tiny landmasses with tons of AI. Inevitably I'll piss one of them off for no good reason and have them trounce me when I'm still recovering from over-expanding (which I feel obligated to do since space is so limited. Obviously being strong and small is smarter here, but it's against my instincts.)
