An excellent balanced civ game, that amazes me. The mechanics were way ahead of its time and most of the contemporary civ games have copied them, like roll through the ages in the resources counters. The game is very enjoyable, comparable to modern civ games. I find it better than, say, sid meier's civ 2010. I would like to invent a trade variant rule to decrease gameplay time. It is a great game, very balanced, with non-brutal area control. Try it if you don't mind the archaic components.Another thing that increases game time is the constant conflict and movement, perhaps a if the attacker had to sacrifice something in order to attack the game would be less chaotic and with substantially smaller gamelength.

Me and my friends played this and we spend whole nights with this game. I found the history theme a bit heavy and dry (I was 12 for god's sake) but enjoyed it more as I got older. A nice game, not for non-gamers though. Simple in mechanics, yet epic in scope.

EDIT: Played it again after almost 15 years. Still enjoy it, good pre-Euro / Euro mechanics although there is a lot of counting and bookkeeping involved which makes the game unnecessary fiddly and number-crunchy. Still, a great game. I will have to play this with more players in order to evaluate its true potential though.

EDIT2: Played it again for the second time and it dragged on a bit. I feel that there is not enough happening to warrant the prolonged playing time and the calamities felt really unbalanced (flood does nothing sometimes, famine can wipe out an entire civilization). I noticed that the fun factor depends on how you play this game with. With wargamers and heavy euro games, Civ is lots of fun, but for connoisseurs of modern and more streamlined games, Civ can be quite tedious.

What's wrong with a six hour game of Civilization when you're among good friends? Nothing. How hard is it to find the people and time to play? Very.

Suddenly a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

A fantastic game that suffers greatly from excessive play time required to actually finish a game.

Expansion, planning, conflict, trade, economics, technology in one simple, elegant game. Innovative at the time. Too long. Avoid "Advanced" version at all costs.
