Ever play a game so addictive that you're afraid to play it, for fear that real life issues could get inadvertantly pushed to the side... little issues like being late for work, or getting to sleep?

That's what ROTK X is for me. That game is Crack! "OK, I'll just give orders, and... hmmm, someone took another city, let's change my strategy... OK, now I've got my domestics up, let's get ready for war... eh, one battle before I go won't hurt... OK, it took a while, but let's get things settled in the new city... OK, now, let's build things up before I... shit, I should have left 10 minutes ago..."

I know the experience. Really, the only thing that kills that for me are long gaming sessions when I've no real life obligations to interfere, a situation that became rarer with age. :X

Curse you Civilization! You've stolen at least three years of my life! I could have spent that time making money! >:(

Am I still on your shitlist in the game? I'm a cute officer, but I don't want to disappear just because of my loyalties to Wu. And don't you dare kill my husband. :'(

Your town has been saved... by Yuan Yao, attacking one of my towns. That leavs some unprotected cities of mine - cities that weren't frontline communities, and therefore, not protected well at all - in jeopardy, so I have to move forth to take two cities, just to be on the safe side. I don't know how I'm going to split things up when I do finally take them; I could put Sima Yi in charge of the town I'm currently in, and send him towards you and put myself towards Yuan Yao, or put HIM towards Yuan Yao, and continue making my way west... which brings me against you and Shawn.

And no, I will not kill your husband, because he would look better serving Shu. :D

What exactly ARE these ROTK games? RTSes?

Somewhat. You have domestic parts (when you're building your city), and battle parts, which are turn based strategic battles.

Try any of the ROTK games that you can find for the computer or for emulators. I recommend ROTK II for SNES if you're looking to get into the series.
