I am a huge fan of the Sid Meier's Civilization series and have been playing it for over 15 years. I actually have been a little behind on my blogging lately as I have been sucked in to the game....and I am trying to ignore that they have an updated version in the App Store....
If my hubby was into board games I would totally get this Sid Meier's Civilization The Board Game!
My boys are too young to play yet, but soon enough! They love playing board games, and card games with me.
The idea behind the board game is the same as the computer game, you need to build an empire to stand the test of time, and beat the other civilizations! You control of an entire civilization, and ensure their survival or defeat.
You chose one famous leader that you will play which determines certain things about your civilization and their abilities. Just like the video game, you have 4 paths to victory, but this comes with a module game
Strategy, research and acquiring assets are still your best bets for success! This is a 2-4 player game.
