Here's a thought experiment that's been in my mind for a while, and I thought I'd share it. Say that, for some reason, the next Civ game only features 4 civs. Which civs do you include. I've been thinking about this for a while. Rome China Egypt Assyria My list looks something like this, but you could choose to go for more modern, or different criteria. My personal list is focused on some of the most powerful civs of the ancient/classical Era. I'm certain on Rome and China, but Egypt and Assyria could be swapped out. So, if the next Civ game only included 4 civs, which would you choose for it to include.
