Do you think it's a good idea to make your own board "Civilization"?

    Yes, there have already been enough board games "Civilizations": the game of 1980 "Advanced Civilization", the game of 2002 "Civilization" based on the third part, the card "Civilization" 2007 (?) Year on the grounds of the 4th part, 2010 game based on the "Civilization Revolution" (and not the fifth part as many think) and, finally, "Civilization: New Dawn" in 2017, based on the 6th part.
    However, in my opinion, they either cut the game too much or not so interesting. Advanced Civilization affects only the ancient period of time, the game of 2002 is very cumbersome and old-fashioned, the version of 2016 has, in my opinion, the most disgusting and uninteresting battle system, there is almost no war. Of all this, the 2010 version is the most popular, but it also has drawbacks: very few, no, VERY FEW water tiles, a very small number of technologies, especially modern ones (although there should be more), and some details (for example , the ability to trade with an opponent, even without meeting him on the card).
    About the version of 2007 I heard little, and few people played it (at least in my city).
    I just thought: can create a new board Civ? Where everything will be, for which we love it: a realistic map, historical events, a vast expanse and choice of development.
    The main thing that I would emphasize: historicity, namely, the historicity of the development of nations (for example, in the Middle Ages all will benefit from taking feudalism and building more colonies in the Colonial era), rather than individual events such as the victory over the Invincible Armada in England, Kulikovo battle in Russia or the construction of the Taj Mahal in Agra.
    What do you think? Is it worth it?
    P.S. In the photo version of the game in 2017.

    This is nothing like the original Civilization board game I learned. But that was back in the '90s.

    I hear Through the Ages is an excellent game
