    Maybe it's just because I don't often play the Romans that I hadn't seen this before...wish I'd thought to get a screenie. When I revolted to Republic, I checked with the Domestic Advisor to see how many turns of Anarchy I'd drawn, and she said...

    "Veii in flames. Film at 11." :p

    Yea, it's an easter egg. it's already on the page on CFC.
    It's a copy from some movie is all i can remember.

    EDIT:Here we go. Straight from CFC.
    News Reporter:
    Domestic Advisor Message

    This is a reference to one of the newscaster's lines in The Kentucky Fried Movie ("Moscow in flames, missiles headed toward New York. Film at eleven.").

    The domestic advisor can say (if you have a city in civil disorder) "$CITY0 in flames. Film at eleven."

    Thanks, Nate! Guess I just haven't been observant enough to pick up on it before. :)
