Civilization and Adjustment

My favorite computer game is Civilization. One of the changes between version III and IV was that at even earlier levels, the rivals get belligerent earlier and more often. I love to win via the space race – by emphasizing the development of technology while spending only enough to keep my civilization safe. But I find that my old versions of “safe” are not enough at the higher difficulty settings for the current version of the game. And at the higher settings, my rivals develop new technologies faster than I do – that’s just one of the challenges the game presents explicitly.

So, can I adjust my comfort settings and deal with the new realities? Well, I’m about to start a new game and I’ll let you know.

I win consistently at the Noble level, but I want to step up to the Prince level.
