Help me find the fun in Civilization (the game)

I've tried to play civ repeatedly in the past and I always get to a point after 50 turns or so where I'm not doing anything besides clicking 'end turn' over and over again because everything is waiting in a queue and there are no actions to take. I eventually get tired of not doing anything and give up.

Recently I picked up the mobile game Battle of Polytopia, a minimalist 4x, and loved it which had me craving a more meaty experience. I picked up Civ VI on ipad to give it another try and, sure enough, after about 50 turns I was no longer playing the game. Am I doing something wrong? I want to get that "one more turn" addiction but the hurry up and wait is killing me.
