    Everyone in this forum is overlooking the greatest game of all time; Minesweeper. A game of skill and concentration, balanced with speed, Minesweeper is without a doubt the best game ever.

    I think I'd rank Civ2 a tad higher

    To me, it's a fight between Civilization II and Unreal Tournament, which is hard to compare ofcourse...

    But when Civilization III will be released, it will definitely be the best game ever! And Minesweeper, , I don't think so...

    I, too, rank CivII WAY ahead of Minesweeper, even though it isn't a bad game.

    Minesweeper becomes somewhat monotonous after a time...whereas Civ just get more and more interesting.

    Minesweeper you say?!? I think not!

    Civ II or minesweeper... hmmm....... tough choice. Do you seriously love minesweeper Mr Sparkle? I can't believe that you're not winding us up.........

    Hey, maybe you should start a minesweepers fanatics website.......

    Or, maybe you can do a patch, where you sweep mines in Civ II...

    Nice one Mr Sparkle - now you have discovered that magic combination, the sky's the limit...

    Or maybe..what you could do is set up a real life minesweeper game with all those people who love minesweeper, only make it insanely difficult...I'll even help to set up the mines. Now this is a great idea!

    Just kidding MrSparkle.

    I know someone who wipes out minesweeper (n cheating) at the beginner's level in 3,4 or 5 seconds EVERY TIME!!! Man, this guy skipped school just to play countless hours of minesweeper!

    A cross between Civ 2 and minesweeper? Is such a thing possible? I just play minesweeper between turns.

    Greatest Board Game Ever: Diplomacy. All strategy, no dice, and the ability to ruin friendships in one single stroke of a pen.

    Greatest Comp Game ever: Civ II. "nuff said.

    Greatest Video game ever: "Utopia" on the old intellivision systems. Loved placing those rebels and sinking the other guys fishing boats<IMG SRC="http://forums.civfanatics.com/ubb/smile.gif" border=0>. You can download it for free at: www.intellivisionlives.com. A close second is Madden 2001 on Playstation.

    My record was 6 seconds!

    But normally I die (because I click too fast) or I get 10 to 12 seconds.

    Minesweeper is realtime. Sometimes you just have to guess where the mine is hidden. Maybe you should create a turnbased minesweeper game on your minesweeper fanatics website, MrSparkle! I'd love to hear how many people signed up for your Turnbased Minesweeper Game Of The Month. And what will the best player get? The Turnbased Minesweeper Game Of The Month Trophy?

    Minesweeper games is going a bit faster, so I will suggest Minesweeper Game of the Week or Minesweeper game of the Fortnight and then of course trophies Minesweeper Week Trophy and Minesweeper Fortnight Trophy.
