Not sure how you can expect a turn based game to be quick.

This is a game that will suck you in for 7-8 hours at a time. The game is anything but quick but it is also very fun and I enjoy it a lot.

HAHAHAHA YESSSS!!!!!!

Once you develop your early strategy you'll restart the game about 2-3 times, refining your strategy until you get it down. After that you'll spend countless hours saying "ok one more turn." ... 3 hours later "OK THIS IS THE LAST TURN" next thing you know you're sleeping on your keyboard.

I really got sucked into Civ4 when it was on a Steam sale. I'm actually downloading the Civ5 demo atm, simply because I cannot afford the full version D:

Yea... a "Quick" game takes about 6 hours to complete the space race in not more.
