As I wrote a week ago, as far as I’m concerned two important games were released on the Switch on November 16th. The first of course is Pokémon Let’s Go, the first journey of the popular series on the Switch.
The other one is Civilization VI: a game that has been around for years and is getting bigger and bigger. And while it was on Mobile and PC, now it can be played on the go. A dream for a lot of fans!
I decided to go for CIV 6 as the fans call it. It’s totally new to me, so I’m an absolute novice. And as I imagine the game is opened up to more people on the Switch, more people have the same problem.
Beginner: where to start?
So where to start? With the tutorial! And it’s a lengthy one. Hours in fact, and I was disappointed to see I can’t save. Doubly annoying when I found a bug: I as trying to place a library on the place where it was most profitable and zoomed out while doing that. After that, it was stuck. And there was nothing to do but start over.
Even with most of the tutorial under my belt now, I feel a bit scared to jump in. But I will, just after my Switch is charged again. Meanwhile, I wanted to share these little tips from Twitter. Lots of shortcuts and things you’ll need to know as a beginner.
Keep your eye on the site: ChamZen is a pro at this game, so she might just have some in-depth tips for me to share here!
