So I am brand new to Civ 5 and the Civ games in general. I've watched a couple tutorials on youtube and that's about it. I started playing the "walk me through it" tutorial and I realized that my social policy cost is at 4995 but from the videos I've seen, it usually starts around 100.

What can I do to lower the cost to adopt a social policy?

  • @TimS. Yes it is – aman207 Jul 24 '16 at 16:56

    Check it on a regular game. I suspect they do that because they don't want you to be able to upgrade policies during the tutorial. – Tim S. Jul 24 '16 at 17:04
  • @TimS. Ah yes, you are correct. – aman207 Jul 24 '16 at 17:39

This is because you are playing the tutorial. You'll find that saving the game is also disabled. I just started a regular game, and the "Next Policy Cost" is 15 culture:enter image description here

I'm sure a regular game will have more reasonable culture costs for policies.
