Uh. GOG would be selling it with GOG, why would you assume it was through their competitor STEAM?

I guess because I thought it was an Epic or Steam exclusive, but didn't bother to check. Sorry! I just assumed they were selling a Steam key. I haven't bought anything from them
in years.

So how many of you have a huge backlog of free games which haven't been played yet? biggrin

It's my hopeless dream that one day I'll be retired and I'll suddenly have all these games to play.

Civ 6 is on sale on Steam. Picked up the Platinum edition, which has the expansions and DLC for $40. Pretty good deal for all you get

https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/12218/Sid_Meiers_Civilization_VI__Platinum_Edition/

I loved Civ 5. More so than the earlier titles for a number of reasons, but mainly the one unit per tile end of the doomstack. I installed Civ 6 then lost six hours in a blink.

How is combat handled in the CIV games? Is there a 3D battle mode or do the armies just fight it out on the strategic map?

Fight on the map. It's very basic. Your unit in one hex 'attacks' an enemy unit in an adjacent hex, the combat is resolved based on attack and defense values, terrain modfiers and the like. Some units like archers, submarines and attack helicopters are ranged and can shoot more than one hex. Since they did away with doomstacks it's a little more tactical, but very basic.

I'm knee-deep in the Total War and Paradox strategy games right now but I might give CIV 6 a shot in the future just to see how different it is. I've never played any of the CIV titles.

You should grab it on this sale and then play it when you get around to it. Steam says the Platinum Edition is 76%-off, so that's quite the deal.

It's a great experience, and you will lose track of time. There are 40 factions to choose from, and many options that give a crazy amount of replayability. There are several ways to win (culture, domination, science, etc) that let you play wide or tall and still succeed. If strategy games that make you agonize over opportunity cost are appealing then Civ is a good choice. Personally I love games like this that keep my brain so engaged, constantly planning, making decision after decision. It's really quite engrossing.

Thanks for the recommendation. I'll check out the Steam page for CIV 6.

I assume you missed the CIV VI Epic giveaway Panzer? Obviously not the Platinum edition,just the vanilla version.

Seems like I did. Oh well, it's ok since I really don't like Epic that much and I'd rather have all my games in Steam.
