Course of a Turn
A declining turn consists of these phases:
Every player uses 2 civilization tiles at any time during the game. The different attributes of these makes the game vary a lot in its simplicity. A favourite, which isn't played enough. It has a feeling of the game Risk, but with more variety and simpler and more interesting combats. But no dice are used, as it's enough to be overwhelming against the adjacent provinces, which is more logic.
