My name is Ironside and i am an addict, since 21st October 2016 i have logged 3571 playing hours.
Since my health hasn't been great in past few years i needed something to fill the time poker used too. So have been playing CIV VI nearly every day.
But despite this i have only achieved 40/191 of the achievements. This is mainly due to only playing Victoria (in vanilla) and Robert the Bruce (in R&F) normally on the TSL earth map that came with the DLC, and no mods.I also never normally finish a game as i start a new game when it gets to the stage i am about to win. I have still to dip my toes into an online game but will do one day. i play 50% of time on Immortal and 50% on deity (Immortal is more fun as you can still get decent wonders). I  and I am now playing on completing as many achievements i can over the next few months. First off i am going to complete all the achievements i can with Scotland, then England then will work through the other Civs.

I am going to try and blog my as a record of how i am doing not expecting many people to understand any of this but if anyone else plays CIV VI here let me know

just got achievement 41 built a colossal head next to a holy site with a temple, never normally do this as basically impossible to get a religion with vicky or bobby on TSL map unless i reduce the difficulty when the game is too easy.

going to try and do the WIN achievements without taking shortcuts and easy routes with wins as leader all done on Emperor or above.

I used to play Civ II when it first came out, and must have lost thousands of hours playing the game.  I dont dabble with computer games apart from Football Manager, but recently bought Civ V.    It still has that addiction quality to it!

I’ve been a Civ addict since the first one - I have about 800 hours on Civ 5.

Not got Civ 6 yet as was waiting for expansions and updates after I got badly burned with the botched release of 5.

I gave up the franchise after ii but bought 5 at a massive discount after it was finished being developed.  Again I played a large number of hours. Civ vi is a different gravy though after the first DLC it became less flake and after first expansion it's now too addictive


Bergeroo , I used to play AoE, total war and Civ loved them all but Civ has caught me recently I dare say in future I will get back on track with the rest

Newportlad, I keep buying the football manger series every year but I fail to finish a season

Lol it was on my mind too tikay !
Gaming ? I’ve never tried it
Well not strictly true a bit of mario carting n early space invaders
It’s big business though
Taking my dog around the local park there’s toddlers in the play  area but very few teenagers ?
My stepsons 26 n 29 are huge gaming players
My sister tells me her son is only happy when on his x box he’s 14-15 btw
Is it only me who feels they are missing out ?
Or was I retarded  because I was always out on a bike / motorbike / up to no good ?

+1

I don't know what it is, and I'm inclined not to find out, as I don't have enough time in a day as it is Cheesy

Good luck, Iron!

It's a turn based game, where you start off in the year 4000 BC with a nomadic tribe looking to settle. You find a spot to settle then need to research everything from mining and pottery all the way through to nuclear power and rocketry and more. A bit like risk where you start off in a certain area expand and strengthen then take out your neighbours and then conquer the world (either by culture, military strength, religion or science.

Its gaming from those without the dexterity of a magician pressing 300 buttons a second.  Its all about choosing the right path to grow,

Ok new game starting tonight but i am going to start on emperor difficulty so i can get some wonders. I am also picking the AI nations to avoid a contest over land i need to expand early.
Picked 3 nations in the Americas, something i would never do but give me the room i need.Also some aggressive nations in the hope i can call some wars of liberation.

Harald Hardrada   Norway
Genghis Khan   Mongola
Shaka      Zulu
Gilgamesh           Sumeria



was struggling to enjoy the game the way i set it up so made a few changes

Poundmaker      Cree
Montezuma   Aztec                      replaced with Tamar of Georgia
Lautaro      Mapuche
Harald Hardrada   Norway                   replaced with Chandragupta of India
Genghis Khan   Mongola
Shaka      Zulu
Gilgamesh           Sumeria                   replaced with Saladin of Arabia


also went back to immortal to make it challenging

But turn 344 i managed to win science with Scotland for 2 more achievements

now going back in time to a save i made in the game to switch to the cultural route to get that completed before switching leader Only 1:45 am and i am feeling better within myself than i have for a few days might play another 2 hours
