The Games You Want to Play – Part VIII…
Civilization (the classic)
OK, I have not played this game in a long time, but it is one of the great “primogenitors” of modern board gaming and still a worthy play. We are going to get this on the table (at least start it) before the cruise to ensure we can remind everyone how to play it! It does take a while to finish this one, which is why it is perfect for the cruise.
Civilization is a game of skill for 2 to 7 players. It covers the development of ancient civilizations from the invention of agriculture c. 8000 B.C. to the emergence of Rome around the middle of the third century B.C. Each player leads a nation of peoples over a map board of the Eastern Mediterranean and Near East as they attempt to carve a niche for themselves and their culture.
