"Civilization 6" is one of the biggest 4X games that is currently out in the market today. Expanding territories, conquering lands, and growing civs are the main objectives of the game. Here are some tips and tricks that will help you attain this goal easily.

Just Add Water

Just like the real historical settlements of human civilization, civs in the game are largely dependent on bodies of fresh water. This is why players of "Civilization 6" must always settle near a river or a coast. Next, always take note of the overly that pops up to highlight the tiles most suitable for water. Housing and amenities are pivotal in "Civilization 6."

Scouting the Enemy

Scouts are always beneficial due to their bonuses and map exploration. They could also establish the terrain of "Civilization 6" early in the game, which would greatly help when expanding the empire. Also, stalk barbarians first to find out their camp, raid goody huts, and spy on nearby city-states and rival leaders.

Boosting Research

The technology tree allows research boosts in "Civilization 6." The tree then details the specific steps needed to be taken to access the boost. These will then be hugely beneficial in the long run, so it is always good to consciously work to attain these objectives.

Optimizing Builders

Unlike previous iterations of the game, the builders in "Civilization 6" are not merely workers. While they have almost the same function, builders have a limited usage number. This is set to three by default. Always keep in mind the layout of the city to always optimize the usage of the builders and other resources.

Trade and Industry

Investing in scouts will eventually lead to the discovery of other civs at some point. Players of "Civilization 6" can then send traders to the newly discovered neighbors if the Foreign Trade cultural research is available. This would effectively enhance the relations between the two civs, and will eventually bring in benefits, such as gold and food. Also, station military troops along trade routes to avoid barbarian attacks.

Use the Interface

The general user interface of "Civilization 6" has seen many improvements over its predecessors. It has been packed with tons of useful tools and guides to guide you in the adventure. The mini-map could also be toggled to view resources and yield icons for players to make better decisions.
