At a Summer dinner my brother and I watched our older cousin play Colonize and we were hooked. We bootlegged a copy and have played all versions of civ. I didn't play much of civ4 due to college and other life things. Got back I to civ when my brother sent me a copy of iv after some surgery in 2009. I was sucked right back in. We play multiplayer together and reminisce about the 7 year olds back in '93. We both look forward to civ VI although at first we both hated the cartoonesque look. It has grown on us though. Is that old timer enough?
