War is a matter of vital importance to the state; a matter of life or death, the road either to survival or to ruin. Hence, it is imperative that it be studied thoroughly. -- Sun Tzu

Welcome to the Civ4 War Academy! Here we have selected dozens of strategy articles that can help you become a better player at Civilization IV. You will find strategies that help you wage a successful military campaign, win the space race, and build the most prosperous civilization!

The articles have been organized into several broad categories to make the academy easier to use. Within each article, the article's date posted/updated is included along with a version icon to indicate the Civ4 version at the time the article was written. Here are the version icons and the release dates.

Civ4 v1.00 Civ4 v1.00: October 25, 2005       Civ4 v1.09 Civ4 v1.09: November 23, 2005

Civ4 v1.52 Civ4 v1.52: December 22, 2005     Civ4 v1.61 Civ4 v1.61: April 13, 2006

Civ4 Warlords v1.0 Warlords v1.00: July 24, 2006       Civ4 v1.09 Beyond the Sword v3.13: July 23, 2007

Like all other pages on the main site, the strategy articles can also be printed out nicely for offline viewing, without the logo, ads, and side bars. Just use "Print Preview" on your browser to see how it will turn out.

Here are some other things you can do to become a better Civ4 player:

  • Visit the Civ4 Strategy & Tips forum & the Civ4 Strategy Articles forum for more great strategies and discussions. Nearly all the articles in the Academy were posted to the Strategy Articles forums first.
  • Participate in the monthly Civ4 Game of the Month competitions. You will have lots of fun playing and learn a lot from fellow participants.
  • Check out the games in the Civ4 Hall of Fame and perhaps submit your own (if you are good enough!).
  • The Succession Game threads are also a great resource for learning the game. After lurking for a while, you may want to join a SG or start your own.

You may want to familiarize yourself with this list of common acronyms in order to fully understand the following articles.
