The first Civilization game I played was the board game, back in 1983. The first time I played Sid meyers' Civilization was with Civ-1 for SNES back in 1994. I got Civ-2 MGE in 1999 and have been it since then.

So I have been playing Civ1 for about 10 years and Civ2 for about, hmmm when was it Civ2 came out?????

I have played Civ 2 for at least 4 years and can dimly remember playing Civ 1 many years ago. Of all the games i play, Civ 2 is probably the one i have played the most over the years.

I am disrespectful to Dirt! Can you not see that I am serious?

Oops, forgot to answer the question.
I started 10 years ago in Civ1 for Amiga, then switched to pc, then Mac version. After having sent my SS to Alpha Centauri 350 times (at least, I think ) I started to play Civ2, and now I'm getting back to Civ1, for fun! Or perhaps we should call that addiction I'm Crazy, I know, no use to flood me with email telling me that

Hey, Fallen Angel Lord, you're God aren't you? Creating Civ, playing it since...

Anyway, I'm sure I am definitely one of the worst addicted by Sid's plague. How did he manage to do that? Before 1992, I hated strategy games. Just arcade and beat-em-up games. I always wonder how the hell Sid caught me so easily. Now due to him my mental state is disturbed

look back a few posts...

I had the game in '92, deleted it because it looked so boring. Then half a year later my friends started playing that same game, I gave it a shot, and... here I am.
