A weekend of MegaCiv
Game Designer at UKGE
Flo de Haan the co-author of the huge game Mega Civlisation is a guest of the UK Games Expo this year. He will be with us Friday and Saturday.
In case you missed it, Mega Civilization, is a huge version of the legendary development game Civilization. It is a game of skill for 5 to 18 players covering the historical development of ancient civilizations from just after the last Ice Age to the dawn of the new era at the end of the Iron Age — a time span of almost 8,000 years. Each player leads their own civilization as it tries to expand its culture over a map board that stretches from the Mediterranean Sea to India.
A game of Mega Civilization can take 10-12 hours to complete. Players can also choose to play the beginner scenario — "The First Game" — which takes only 1-2 hours. Another scenario — "The Short Game" — provides the same excitement as the full game, although the game starts in a later age; by doing this, games can be played in "only" 6-8 hours.
