Civilization (Avalon Hill)

An epic board game lasting 8 or more hours, starting at the stone age and lasting up until the late iron age. This is the game that (supposedly) inspired Sid Meyer into creating his long-running computer game series. It's a complex game of trading, development, conflict, and surviving disasters which strike at the most inopportune times. Anyone up for a game?

It seats 2-7, and the more players we have, the merrier. Also, need to find a good location to play - worst-case scenario, we can play at Game Parlor and just pay them their tabling fee of $2.00.

    Started a little late waiting for the six player but finally started with five about 12:40 pm. Finished the entire game by about 9:00 pm. Benjamin was the clear winner as Italy followed by a three-way tie between Aaron (Assyria), Benjamin (Egypt) and myself (Africa), followed closely by Greg (Babylon).

      I had a fantastic time - thanks so much for providing the copy of the game we used. FYI, turns out my little brother borrowed it without telling anyone - next time I'll be able to provide one, and even a copy of Advanced.

    I am also bringing a trio of different games - 1830, Manifest Destiny, and Raikroad Tycoon - so the day won't be totally wasted if you all still show. I know it's not the same, but it's all I can do.

      Bring whatever you like but as for Civilization I have it covered. See previous note.

    Dear everyone,

    I am so sorry for this, but my copy of the game has disappeared. I've torn apart my house, called my friends, but there is no sign of it. Right now, I'm hoping my brother borrowed it and didn't tell anyone, because otherwise I'm out a rather expensive collector's item with no clue why or how. I will be coming by to personally everyone know and relay my apologies.

      Benjamin - sorry to hear about your loss but not to worry for today's event because I have a copy of the game.

    Hi guys, Marie and I are going to move off this meetup and I am properly setting the RSVP limit to 7 - this game is now full. Please show up if you RSVP'd yes. Enjoy!

      Because it's looking unlikely I'll be able to get out of Mount Vernon in time to head down to Woodbridge, I'll clear some space as well.

    Looks like I'll still be able to make it. Looking forward to meeting everyone!

    Bad news: one of my teachers just scheduled class from 9:30 to 1 at Mt. Vernon, so unless he decides to cut it short, I'll be totally unable to travel down to Woodbridge.

    just to recap the conversation. It looks like Saturday, 3/9 at my place in Woodbridge is good for at least 4 of us. Two cats live here in case anyone has allergies. Haven't heard from Aaron or Benjamin. More details to follow.

    • Benjamin U.

      3/9 sounds good for me.

    • Evan W.

      I suppose good things comes to those who wait

  • Evan W.

    They, can you make me an assistant organizer? If we're going for 10 hour games, then we've GOT to get some here I stand going

    February 10, 2013

    • Evan W.

      "Rhett," not they

      February 10, 2013

    • Rhett

      You're an organizer. Make the best of it.

      February 12, 2013

  • Evan W.

    Yes!

    i could host in my home in Woodbridge on Saturday, 2/23. I have a copy of the game. I also have a copy of the Sid Meyer's Civilization: The Boardgame as a follow-up to or alternative to the AH version.
