Now Civilization is one of my favourite games. I sadly don't get to play it all that often, mainly due to the length of time it takes (it's one of the longest games I know and we've had games last a good 6-10 hours before :p). I also usually play with 6 or 7 players but yesterdays gathering was with four. Dom, inskauldrak and Ronnie. The game itself was once again great fun with many advancements, population expansions, natural disasters and a few little skirmishes thrown into the mix. I decided to tackle life as Crete and was fairly pleased with the results. Considering I had a little island and couldn't expand until I built a ship it didn't pan out too badly for me. I managed to start populating a few different areas along the rim of the Mediterranean without too much conflict. In fact I think the only person I ended up really fighting throughout the game was the birthday boy himself :p
Anyway, after the game mrsdominic cooked us all a nice meal and joined us with Eleanor for feasting and then much chatting until hometime. Great fun. I think we're oragnising another days outting for Civilization too as all four of us enjoyed it and seem to have caught the bug again!
