Game Design internship? Sign me up! But yes, I understand it's full now. I'd be very interested in information about the program and/or school and whether or not there will be a next time. Thanks Chris!

LateTide, I agree. The first few turns of a Civilization game (V in my case) are all about the exploration and feelings of curiosity and wonder. True, some players might be thinking in terms of strategic benefit, but for me it's all about uncovering the "world" as generated by the random algorithms (including natural wonders and goodie huts). In a way this whole exploration phase sets up the inevitable immersion of a (how long have I been sitting here?) Civ game. There are times when all I do is play for the first 50 turns, explore the surrounding world, and start all over again with a new map. It's really fun!
