Civilization 5 Guide and Walkthrough
Civ 5 Information, Articles, and Strategies for New Players
My Civilization 5 Guide is an ongoing project. I write many game walkthroughs, and keep coming back to Civ 5. As I do, I'll add new info and articles to help my fellow strategy gamers. This will primarly help newcomers to the game, but experienced players may find help and information here and there. I encourage you to email me your tips to improve this guide. I can be contacted at email@example.com. Tell me of your favorite civilizations to use for a certain strategy, tips to improving your economy and any information that you think would be helpful to newbies and I'll likely include it in this guide.
This page itself serves as a gateway to the Civ 5 Info I've published to date:
