Sid Meier’s Civilization: The Board Game

Sid Meier’s Civilization: The Board Game is not great game but it can be very funny to play with right people ;). We had 4 player session few days ago which was pretty good: Rome vs. China vs. USA vs. Germany.

IMG_0610As per above you need huge table to fit everything. Playing time 4+ hrs but I am sure we can do it around 3 hrs after few plays. My (China) strategy to go culture and ignore military was just one big mistake, didn’t help lack of resources and wrong technologies – well, something to improve for next play. Rome and Germany went very well and it was between them to decide who will have a reward to attack China’s capital city and win the game. Rome won after final battle where lot of Culture Events cards were played. I have first expansion for this game but never played it yet and might give it a try next time.

I like this game, it’s not as heavy as it looks like and only problem I have is play time – recently I do not like to play games that are 4+ hrs.
