Zero Civ experience, Civ 5 Complete on sale.. tempted

How easy is it on introducing everything to newcomers? game seems complex.

It's about as easy as it's going to get for a 4X game

Civilization games are pretty great for teaching you how to play, especially 5. They're not very complex, but they are deep (in comparison to it's complexity at least). Grab it, you wont regret it.

There's some fine tutorials for beginners on Youtube.

The game has advisers in it to help you know what to do, and it points out anything interesting happening each turn.

Yeah, tutorials aren't necessary in Civ 5 at all, although the built in ones are decent. You can turn on advice and let the game teach you as you play.

While it's downloading, load up on snacks and drinks, call your work or girlfriend and let them know you have a horrible flu.
