Today, players can find millions of games of various genres. But in every genre, there are some games that, without a doubt, are the best representatives of their genre. And if we talk about turn-based strategies, then, of course, the first thing that comes to mind is the Civilization series. The last game, Civilization 6, came out way back in 2016, but you can still spend hours playing the game. And to create the best civilization, we have compiled a list of the best Leaders in Civilization 6.

Civilization 6 is incredibly popular among players because the game has a huge amount of content. Even by developing one of the civilizations, you will spend many hours. And you can play as 50 different civilizations. Moreover, each player decides how to develop the country.

But as in real life, without a good Leader, the country will not be able to develop and fight off the attacks of other countries. There are almost 60 different Leaders in Civilization 6. And, of course, some of them have a lot more pros than others. Therefore, we ranked all the Leaders from the best to the worst.
