A new book entry has been added:

Good detailed review there.
On a couple of points, I think it errs. Some of the games messages have been left unchanged and are wrong, e.g. at the discovery of writing you do not get the promised diplomats, and at the discovery of seafaring you do not get the promised explorers (though your skirmishers and later horsemen make that insignificant).
My own assessment is at http://civilization.wikia.com/wiki/Seeds_of_Greatness_(Civ2)
Readers are most welcome to join me in making that page even more detailed.
I would like to contact Paul Cullivan to congratulate him. The email address in the game got no response.
(How can I get the events file to work? I have Windows Vista. When I click the file I get a half-second of a DOS-like window then it disappears. Despite that, the game is NOT boring!)
