Haven't played since the 1st Civilisation

Hi Sean,
I'm almost in the same boat, as I haven't played Civ since the very first installment. Apparently the late Leonard Nimoy read the flavor text of inventions in Civ5, but they also found a worthy successor for Civ6.
So far (~ 3 hours of playing time into it) I'm enjoying the game and hope you're having a great time with it!
All the best,
