My Civ 5 Strategy Site
I am sharing my site with the Civ 5 players here to help draw attention to my effort to cover every aspect of Civ 5 gameplay. I'm actively developing a strategy guide to the game, which is now at over 120 pages of pure content. I have a Civ list with detailed information on all Civs with both DLC and all other addons that will help players select their next Civ much better than the in-game interface, which I find is very popular for the game lacks information on unique units and buildings. I'm working to cover every single Civ, which will take months of play on my part, so that I can provide valuable information to newcomers and allow veterans to share extra information that I may have left out.

You can see the site here:
http://www.carlsguides.com/strategy/civilization5/

You can leave comments on the Guide to let me know what you think or share information to help improve it for future readers. Civ 5 is a deep game and I've undertaken a huge project in trying to cover all of it, but thankfully it's still fun even after hundreds of hours of play. It is my favorite version of the game to date, and i've played all 5 plus some of the others (like Alpha Centauri).

I hope it is helpful to some of you who are learning the game, or just want to use some of the resources on my site.

Any chance you're going to complete the guide with the last 10 civilizations that's missing? I'd really like to read your suggestions about how to play with Ethiopia, for example.

Spencer Bender - Thank you! I am glad to be among them, even if I am just for beginners. I worked a year on this site, so I felt comfortable sharing it. I know some people find it bad I shared on steam but I know just as many are glad I even showed it exists. :)
