Since remote gaming has now become a significant part of how we play board games, we have added a short cut to this forum in the menu on the left.

You know, it's good that the world occasionally reaches out its slappy hand of justice and smacks me across the face so that I don't get to smug.

Until you pointed it out, I couldn't understand what the hell the name of the game was supposed to mean. Ah, the acronym is CIV...I get it now!

It's nice to be reminded I'm dumber than I think I am.

How does this streamlined Civilization game compare to Innovation?

Outside of the set dressing it doesn't, really. Inno is all about the busted Chudyk combos and invokes its theme a bit more, especially in the later ages. CIV is a clever card game with really nice production.

I actually really liked this one. The ways it differs at each player count, the table talk, the presentation, all good by me. Solid little card game. Just don't expect Civilization from it.

I bought Andy's copy and we gave it a play. Sadly, no one was wowed. If you want a civ-like card game you're sure do be disappointed, as other games do this much better. If you don't care about the civ theme and want a card manipulation game, you still have better options. It's not bad, there's just nothing to get excited about.
