I think i'm pretty good.
Do the higher difficulties have cheating AI?
I don't like playing against cheating AI eg in SC2, highest difficulty had the AI get free minerals/gas.

Yes, in King, they have like 10% discount on building stuff, Emperor about 20%. Require less food to produce population or/and start with free tech.

I actually find King to be my sweet-spot right now. Any higher and the AI's bonuses are cheesy.

Here is a breakdown of what benefits you and the AI get at all the various difficulties.

I used to stick to King but it was too easy. Emperor is hard, and the computers definitely build wonders faster and seem to gain technologies quicker; but honestly once you have a good grasp of the game they need these handicaps just to compete with you.

I'd say if you've beat Prince a few times at least try King out. Emperor is when I find the computer actually feels like they're cheating.

civfanatics is probably the "best" civ site there is. the amount of detail that goes into their debates they have on their message boards is ridiculous.

Prince is incredibly easy. All you have to do is play relatively competently and you should be in good condition to win, probably by a lot.

King is kind of the same but you have less room for bad decisions. It should be the normal difficulty tbh.
