Errmmm... that should read: Never played Civilization games before - should I try Civ3? I noticed the Collector's edition of Civilization 3 on sale at my local EBX for $39.99 (which is odd, because the "normal" edition is $49.99). I enjoy RTS games (Command and Conquer, Warcraft, Starcraft, etc) and Turn-based board games (Britannia, Maharaja, etc). Would these interests make me interested in Civ3? For those of you who've played, what's it like (compared to other games)? What's the learning curve if you've never played?
