Fantasy Flight Games is excited to announce the upcoming release of Sid Meier’s Civilization®: The Board Game! Forge an empire to stand the test of time using innovative game mechanics with multiple paths to victory.
Will you lead the greatest army in the world to conquer your foes? Or will you be the first to journey to the stars, becoming the most technologically advanced civilization known to man? The choice is yours.
Designed by Kevin Wilson, Civilization: The Board Game is inspired by the legendary video game series created by Sid Meier, which is currently being developed by Firaxis Games, a 2K Games studio. Players are tasked with guiding an entire civilization throughout the ages, taking ownership of your people’s technology, economy, culture, and military, as well as all the choices that go along with them. There are four different paths to victory, and each is riddled with opposition.
In Civilization: The Board Game, 2-4 players take on the roles of famous leaders in charge of historical civilizations, each with their own abilities. Players will be able to explore a module game board, build cities and buildings, fight battles, research powerful technology, and attract great people by advancing their culture. No matter what your play style is, there is a civilization for you!
Fans of Sid Meier’s classic video game franchise will find familiar footing in Civilization: The Board Game. Staying true to the foundations of its video game predecessor while creating a new and unique way to play, Civilization: The Board Game captures the spirit and grandeur of carving out a magnificent empire from modest beginnings.
Players start off with a single city, one army figure, and one scout, and from these meager origins you must forge through the ages and become the greatest civilization in the world.
Those unfamiliar with the video game series will find Civilization: The Board Game a great way to enter into the world of Civilization. The strategy and tactical decisions involved in Civilization: The Board Game will appeal to strategy gamers and war gamers alike, and the ability to win through culture and technological advancement will give those who only wish to focus on their own empire a chance at victory as well.
This fall, forge your own path to greatness!
A great, wide world awaits your burgeoning empire. There are remarkable wonders to create, vast cities to build, and sprawling lands to discover. Can you lead your civilization to greatness?
Build the future of your dreams with Sid Meier’s Civilization: The Board Game! Based on the widely popular video game by Sid Meier, Civilization: The Board Game is a board game of empire building in which 2-4 players compete to establish the most successful civilization of all time. Take control of powerful leaders from throughout history and lead great military campaigns, become the cultural hub of the world, or advance your technology into the stars. The world is at your fingertips.
In Civilization: The Board Game players can win in a variety of ways, utilizing many different strategies. Perhaps you would like to focus on advancing your civilization on the Culture Track, gracing the world with beautiful works of art, extravagant theaters, and musical masterpieces. Or maybe you have powerful armies under your command, giving you the advantage on the battlefield, and your key to victory is the subjugation of your opponents. Another way to win is by becoming the wealthiest empire, amassing the most gold over the course of the game. And finally, the player that advances their technology far enough to become the first civilization to pursue space travel achieves a technology victory.
One of the most alluring elements of the Civilization video games is the ability to control an empire from the dawn of civilization all the way through to the modern era, expanding your meager nation one step at a time. This element remains a prominent feature in Civilization: The Board Game. Players all begin the game with a single city, a single army, and one scout. You must build your entire civilization from the ground up, gathering resources, conquering villages, expanding your army, and building structures that will further your advancement throughout the ages.
Players are sure to recognize some familiar faces when they choose their civilization leaders. Civilization: The Board Game features six different civilizations, all with their own leaders and special abilities. Will you play as Cleopatra and take advantage of the Egyptians’ ability of quick construction? Or would you rather take on the role of Abraham Lincoln and guide the Americans to victory with their increased production abilities? There are many different strategies within each civilization, and with the various ways to win the game, you will find yourself wanting to play again and again to try out new tactics with new civilizations.
Build an Empire to Stand the Test of Time
A game of Civilization: The Board Game begins by each player selecting a civilization to play as. Players then build the game map by selecting their civilization’s starting tile and shuffling the remaining random tiles to lay face down, creating the unexplored areas of the map.
Each turn of the game consists of start of turn actions, trading, managing your cities, movement/exploration, and research. Players alternate taking actions during each phase of the game until the turn has been completed, then gameplay continues to the next turn.
Start of turn actions include building new cities, changing governments, and any other special start of turn actions provided by Wonders or Culture cards. During the trade phase, players collect trade from their cities and begin negotiating with other players. Unused Culture tokens, Resource tokens, Unit cards, and even promises can all be traded during this phase. Be careful though, because promises are in no way binding!
City Management lets players produce units or scout/army figures, devote their city to the arts, construct buildings or wonders, or harvest a resource. The Movement phase consists of players moving their figures around the board, exploration, and combat. Movement is hindered by terrain unless players have a technology that provides them increased mobility (such as sea travel). When a figure is adjacent to a face down game board tile, the controlling player can spend one movement to explore that tile, turning it face up. Whenever opposing figures end in the same space, battle ensues.
In Civilization: The Board Game, combat is resolved through unit cards and a fast resolution system that takes into account the "era" of your military technological development. Each player draws cards from their available units and chooses which units will fight in the battle. Once the winner is decided, the loser must discard their army figure and the winner may choose their reward from the loser (either 3 points of trade, 3 culture tokens, or any one resource token).
Reach for the stars, one step at a time
One way to victory in Civilization: The Board Game is by researching space travel and launching your people into the stars. To advance your civilization in the technological world, you must move forward one step at a time. The “tech pyramid” system requires a new technology card be placed above two lower level tech cards. So, in order to research a level 2 technology, that player needs to have two level 1 technology cards already researched. Plan your advancements ahead or you may find your civilization falling behind in the world of technology.
Battles fought in the blink of an eye
In Civilization: The Board Game, war is another way to become the greatest civilization in the world. The first player to successfully invade an opposing player’s capital city wins the game, and thanks to an intuitive card-driven combat system, battles are a breeze to wage in Civilization: The Board Game. When two armies clash on the game board, the controlling players take their available unit cards and randomly draw their hand size of cards. After choosing units, players follow a rock-paper-scissors trump system to determine the winner. This intuitive combat system promotes quick battles with no need to constantly reference stats or roll dice.
