I have not played GalCiv in a while so I was a little rusty. Yesterday I gave it a go and let me tell you I got the living daylights beat out of me. Medium galaxy, normal level, and it was the Torians who put me out of my misery. What is funny, I thought I was doing good 80% of the game until the end. I actually thought I was going to win for sure. It was only the Torians and Altarians left. Somehow I managed to piss off the Torians and that did it. It wasn't even close, they walked all over me and I could not do anything at all! I tell you, GalCiv is a tough game but fun that lasts all the way to the very end. In fact I don't ever remember playing a game of GalCiv that was not fun.
