    HI,

    I have been playing CIv II on and off for over ten years on my old powerMac 7200/90. I tried Civ III on my PC and even CIv 5 (I hated it and chucked it away after one go!).

    My monitor on my old mac has now died. I use an Imac for my home work (I am a graphic designer) and my spec is OSx 10.6.8. I am also based in the UK.

    Is there anyway I can get to play CIvII on my Imac? Can I buy a copy to work?

    I tired to download a version to my PC but as I am in uk would not work. I run windows 7 on the pC so could play a version on that?

    Thanks

    Consider the information in this thread. Since you have the mac version of Civ II, the information might not be directly applicable (I don't own a mac, so I don't know for sure).

    Since you are a Mac user, you might be able to get an old Mac OS from their website and use virtualization software to create a virtual computer. Install the OS on the virtual computer, and then install Civ II on it.

    You might get more information in the tech support forum.
