At the same time instant when you're at your most vulnerable, a helpful little prompt comes up, telling you to click here to move to the next turn. In V it's bright and glowy and ever so tempting. So you reach for it, thinking "I just want to see what happens next . . ."
Then BAM! Not only do you see all your enemies move (F%$C*ing barbs!), but a bunch of helpful little prompts appear on the right side of your screen, telling you all of the urgent things that have occurred in your empire. Temple construction finished! Your spearman was destroyed by an enemy archer! New Civic unlocked! And your first thought is "Oh no, I better take care of all of these things before I forget about them. But as soon as I'm done, I'll quit." Hah! Next thing you know the sun has risen and your mouth tastes like a squirrel died in there.
