I haven't really played Civ or Minecraft properly. I have just tested both but I came to a conclusion that both of them sucks. When I really started to play those games I had to change my mind with Civ. In fact it is one of the best strategy games I have ever played. But Minecraft still sucks a**.
I have been playing Civ only in singleplayer because our group somehow managed to screw up with our multiplayer game so there isn't much to tell. I've been getting used to the game and that's all. Also our Minecraft server is currently offline so we just have to wait.
