Are there any programs that you can make games with, without really knowing how to program. I wish I could learn C# but I don't have the time having a family and being a network admin windows uses up most of my reading time. I like to create and build things, I love to play turn based games such as civ. I know some basics of programming like vb, php, html, so even if there were small scripting things, that would be good. Thanks

I love the word 'curmudgeon'.

Try something like GameMaker from YoYo Games:

"Do you want to develop computer games without spending countless hours learning how to become a programmer? Then you've come to the right place. Game Maker allows you to make exciting computer games, without the need to write a single line of code. Making games with Game Maker is a lot of fun.

Using easy to learn drag-and-drop actions, you can create professional looking games within very little time. You can make games with backgrounds, animated graphics, music and sound effects, and even 3D games! And when you've become more experienced, there is a built-in programming language, which gives you the full flexibility of creating games with Game Maker. What is best, is the fact that Game Maker can be used free of charge.

You can do anything you want with the games you produce, you can even sell them! Also, if you register your copy of Game Maker, you can unlock extra functions, which extend the capabilities of the program. Game Maker comes preloaded with a collection of freeware images and sounds to get you started."
