Wish there was/is a simple download to re play Civ 2 on Win 10, I'm not computer savvy almost age 70 now ha ha had this game for ages and would like to play it again, have disks bought twice and downloaded paid also it's very frustrating. Surely there must be an easy way these days to get this game running again?

download this thing, its a modern launcher that includes everything u need to just play the game.
I suggest you to thoroughly read the thread, atleast the first few posts to have a general idea what it does and how to use it.
3. (optional) If you care about councils and other video stuff.
download this codec pack, install, then type in "codec tweak tool" in your popup windows menu, the one u can open pressing windows button on ur keyboard.
In this app click on ACM/VFW (x86), then select Indeo4 to enable indeo4 codec.
Thats what i did to boot it up on my win10 1803 x64
Alternatively, if u really want to play civ2 but somehow steps above didn't work out at all
