Civ V is a fairly big re-do of the Civ games, and there's still a lot to uncover for some of us. Frankly, I'm glad there's no more religion and the way happiness is handled in Civ V, at least so far, seems good to me.
Now then, I've been playing on the easy settings just to try out different leaders and game settings. Next, I start bumping up the difficulty setting every time I play until the game beats me consistantly. Once you start getting yourself beat consistently by the game is when you learn how to play it and use every aspect of the games "innards". I'm not there yet, or even close.
