comment Can I create one steam account per game?
Indeed, I don't know if it would be worth the effort to do. But you could perhaps use Gmail's '+' notation to make it more systematic. i.e. register a steam account your_name+game_name@gmail.com. Then you would only need one gmail account (your_name@gmail.com).

comment Can I create one steam account per game?
I'm in your situation too. It's worth noting that our situation is explicitly prohibited by the steam user agreement. From steam's point of view, both you and your son should have to purchase your own copies of every game you would like to play. i.e. sharing a steam account between any two people (even family/friends) is not allowed, one account == one person. If you accept that condition, then its hard to justify why one person would ever need to play two games at once.

comment Civilization V versions
@Sheldon: Do you have a link so we can see it too? I have never seen any copy such as the one you describe and I reviewed all the available copies for sale when the game came out.

comment Why I need to verify Steam file integrity when a play Civilization V in DX9 mode?
Steam should verify a file once (and only once) after it has downloaded, this protects your computer from using a corrupt or damaged files. If you find they steam is trying to verify it each time, either delete/re-install the game/steam or post a bug report to steam.

comment Can you move population to new cities with settlers?
@WW: I think what he means is that there is no difference in how the game treats a 'population point'. Sure, having bigger cities lets you use them in better ways indirectly, but the population point is still treated the same regardless.

comment Can you move population to new cities with settlers?
@bwarner: I assume this imbalance is because each 'population point' is not equal. Going from 1->2 citizens represents a much smaller increase in total population than going from 10->11.

Good Idea: The counter was pretty busy so I just started playing another game.

It was a few months ago so my memory is fuzzy, however I distinctly remember it not allowing me to play offline either. Perhaps that was a separate issue though.

Its worth clarifying, you are talking about Civilization2(1996) and not Civilization5(2010).

comment Does the Elizabeth leader bonus in Civ5 also apply to embarked units?
I remember someone saying embarked units are still categorised as 'land units', so they do not receive the bonuses. Have not verified yet.

comment How valuable is it to build next to a river?
+1. Also if I am not mistaken. Settling next to a river will mean you effectively loose the river bonus for the tile your city is placed on. (City tiles will generate the same food/gold/production regardless of the underlying type)

comment Do mods prevent you from achieving achievements?
@aslum: I have not tried re-loading a game with different mod's enabled but I would think(hope) that a game is 'invalidated' once any mod is used, otherwise nearly all achievements would be easily obtained with a corresponding mod.

comment Is there a way to figure out what cities have wonders?
All these methods will only give you information after the wonder has been built.

comment Do I gain income for connecting city-states to my trade network?
Is it necessary to build a road or will any trade network connection (harbour) suffice?
