Hi. I love Civ, I wasted most of my childhood playing it. I was so excited when I ordered the cd rom and it arrived today, but I didn't realize it's not compatible with newer laptops. I have Windows 8 (I think... the laptop is 5 months old). I've read some of the other threads but I don't even understand the technical jargon... I don't know what a 'vm' is for example I'm desperate to play Civ... could anyone talk me through what to do in simple terms? I'm hoping I haven't just wasted £11 and got my hopes up for nothing!!
