About FreeCiv 2.3.4

Freeciv is a free turn-based multiplayer strategy game in which each player struggles to become the leader of a civilization.

The goal of Freeciv is to build cities, which in turn can build armies to attack the other players. You start with 2 settlers and 1 explorer. Using the numeric keypad, move the settlers to a good location and build a city by pressing 'b' (for 'b'uild). You can also move diagonally. Freeciv is turn based; every unit can move once per turn. The turn ends when everyone clicks "Turn done" or when a timeout is over.

In these cities, you can also build city improvements. Some improvements allow the city to grow. You should also build wonders, as they can do very important things, for example,the Apollo Program lets you see the entire map.

Cities also produce units, which can be used for various purposes, from fighting wars to enhancing infrastructure.

Players win either by using military units to conquer all opposing civilizations, or by using scientific knowledge and production to build a spaceship to send citizens to Alpha Centauri before oher players can do so.
