    But it also brings up this cutesy Nintendo looking stuff

    :lol: first one is Civ3 city view ;).

    The second is the official advertisement image for the game.


    To the OP: It seems that no community team got selected for the Alpha, and the ones who were are probably not allowed to talk about it.

    I'm sure CIv facebook will be a big success for the egomaniac Meier but unfortunately I'll never get to play it because I have no friends and don't use FB :cry:

    but im sure it is no suprise to anyone!! but i am hoping that it will be better than other facebook games (looking at you mafiawars and all those other zenga games)

    eh....

    Civ : Santa's in town
    Civ : Sid grew a beard
    Civ : You only need to use 1 finger (and no brain)
    Civ : "hey! I got an idea. Lets take our dusty old franchise and completely destroy it, by trying to reach an audience who will shift farmville out with civ ville (but change to cafeville the next day)"
    Civ : Smell my finger!

    I suspected it might be, but I couldn't find any pics on google. I figured it wasn't in the end because the map graphics aren't as polished.

    I have Civ 3 but have never got round to playing it!

    Civ: 2 girls 1 cup

    That almost sounds appealing.

    I applied for the alpha testing but I doubt they are going to except me. Probably because I checked civ 3, 4, and 5 in the little "what civs hev you played box?" I bet they only except completely inexperienced facesheep users to test the game. So they all come back saying,

    "omG it is sooo FuNN!!!" "I already spent $30 dollars on premium content so the game will be enjoyable. I love freemium games that eat my wallet and my soul!"

    You should make a poll called "How bad do you think civworld will be?" I bet 99.9% of civfanatics will vote "really bad"

    and this is why they wouldnt have accepted a civfanatic team ;)

    oh i forgot that you can spend money in these games to make yourself a little more powerful and the such :cry:

    i really hope we are all wrong and civ world an excellent addition to the franchise ...

    It is absolutely ridiculous because you can't win a fb game. They go on forever. I know my fiance is addicted to frontierville. You have to help your neighbors to get stuff. LOL!

    looks like a game only last so long? and then is reset for another round
    who knows, it sounds fun
    wonder if it is a global game or many seperate games going on at once

    dont really see any kind of need to keep everything secret (screenshots, gameplay style ect) its not like "everyone" is going to rushout and purchace this game on release day (unless u have to purchace the title to play?)

    wow, it really does sound pretty cool, but then so did ciV ...

    The only saving grace about Civ: Smell Sid's Finger is that Firaxis don't have to program an AI, since it is 100% multiplayer, and this is great news because Firaxis haven't made a decent AI in years. :)
