I can't remember how long ago it was that my friends suggested to me that I should start playing the Civilization series, but it's certainly been a while. I own Civilization 3 and 4 and a good deal of their expansion packs (lucky find at a junk shop!), but for some reason, I've never managed to bring myself to start playing...perhaps it's because I've got lots of other games that I'm distracted with (coughCrusaderKingsIIcough), or perhaps I'm just not in the mood for learning something huge when I'm taking a break, or perhaps it's the fact that my computer DVD drive has been broken for a year now and nobody in the computer has bothered to fix it due to us all being busy and needing the computer constantly for various reasons...

Well, I might finally be giving things a go, soon! I was browsing the junk shops today after my first day out of the house in what feels like forever - our puppy Riley is still too mischievous to be trusted on his own for too long, so with the rest of the family quite busy, I'm stuck at home in the lounge, cause he won't settle anywhere else - and I stumbled across a copy of "Sid Meier's Civilization: The Board Game" for $10. It looks like it's going to be a monstrosity of a game, but also potentially a lot of fun...guess I'll have to figure out how it works! 

Here's the game's page on BoardGameGeek (it's the 2002 game, not the 2010 game); www.boardgamegeek.com/i…

Who am I? I'm a random person who likes solving problems that pop up in various book/film/tv/game/etc series that I pay attention to. Hence, a lot of my work revolves around creating essays, maps, informative pictures, and the odd fan-fic to test out a scenario. I also like designing things, so there's the odd concept there too!

I'm only too happy to help out with things wherever I can...need a quick historical map drawn or want help coming up with a story concept? Send me a message and I'll see what I can do.

Random, but I was looking at the box art for CKII, and you know how there's a random knight on the cover riding out to glory? Turns out he's actually a character from an 1820 book called Ivanhoe; "His suit of armour was formed of steel, richly inlaid with gold, and the device on his shield was a young oak-tree pulled up by its roots, with the Spanish word Desdichado, signifying Disinherited [actually, it means Unfortunate]. 
'Have you confessed yourself, brother,' said the Templar, '...that you peril your life so frankly?' 
'I am fitter to meet death than thou art,' answered the Disinherited Knight; for by this name the stranger had recorded himself in the books of the tourney... "

The best bit is it's two flags in one! If you go to religious map mode, the Papal State is Catholic (yellow), and Denmark is Protestant (blue). As such, this happens: oi60.tinypic.com/2b48e1.jpg

Oh my god that's epic! Jeez, do you suppose they cheated to do that, or did they do it the hard way?

Yeah, let me just paint myself copper and mutilate myself and I'll fly on down and get started.
