Civilization VI’s America will rule the world with blue jeans and pop music

Succumb to its culture

My first encounter with President Roosevelt in Civilization VI went about as well as I could’ve hoped — he had his people bake me pies! — but I’m fairly certain the gift was a part of some Machiavellian scheme. Once his military might grew, he doubtless would have overpowered my peaceful-unless-you’re-a-barbarian civilization with his Rough Riders and turned us into meat pies.

What? Am I the only one who likes to play Civ imagining wild scenarios like that? It’s so much fun!

Today’s trailer is a look at Civilization VI‘s America and how it is well-suited for a cultural victory with its film studios and national parks. That’s my preferred style of winning these and really any other strategy games — not just going nuclear on everyone — but it never seems to work out that way.
