Civilization IV packshot image
Civilization IV is a turn-based game in which the player builds an empire from very limited initial resources. All standard full-length games begin in 4000 BC with a settler who builds a single city. From there, the player expands an empire while contending with rival nations, using the geography, developing infrastructure, and encouraging scientific and cultural progress.

You can for sure. Great game, and a good start. The tutorial is not that advanced and good for a starter. It has a feature to modify anything so if you get in trouble use it.
