Make sure you play the tutorial.
Understand these 3 things, and you will think the game is super easy,
One hint I will give you is DO NOT build too many cities at the start. 5-6 cities is plenty. I know this is counter-intuitive for a Civ 2 player, but you get heavy maintenance penalties for having too many cities (stupid, imo).
