Iliya and I sat down to try a game of Civ V against a good number of computers.  I chose the nation of Polynesia, since I hadn’t played them before.  They are able to embark and go in the open ocean from the start.  I was able to use this to explore a ton before most others were able to.  I got ahead on science and then got ahead on religion.  The religion part started making me lots of money, which was very nice.  We had to stop eventually, and we’ll finish the game some other time.
