    I kinda needed the original civ 4 CD to install the game on my other computers.

    So what should I do? Celebrate? Groan in despair? :D Be thankful for what I have?

    Suicide is always an option. :suicide: Or you could find out where the game was bought and see if the store will do a swap.

    Er, Colonization is that bad, I presume (I don't check the Colonization forum but I have now since I'm learnign the basics of the game now).

    Nah, I don't think Colonization is bad per se, it's just less "open" if you know what I mean. The victory conditions are always the same, and there's only one type of victory... I never would have bought this game, but I lost my old Civ 4 CDs, and seeing Civ 4 Complete on sale for $40 seemed like a great deal (at Direct 2 Drive) and only after I had purchased all of the 4 games, I realized that I already had BTS from a previous purchase, and didn't need or want Warlords or Colonization. I could have just bought vanilla Civ 4 for $20 less. :(
