  • I remember when I first played Civ 2 at my cousins house. I was instantly addicted, and when my father got his first lap top and got me a copy of Civ 2. Well I spent two years of high school on that game and it's add-ons.

    I loved Alpha Centauri and went back to play the original and Colonization also. When Civ 3 came out I personally wasn't a big fan but do remember playing it on an ancient computer. I used to convince people to buy it so I'd hear how far they were getting, when I would spend literally days playing and didn't have gun powder yet.

    I love Civ 4 and own both add-ons. A little tight on money at the moment so I won't be able to get the game right away except this way. Personally though even if I lose I'll be getting this as soon as I can.
