    Got it for 50 € (62 USD)

    Dutch manual, unfortenately. Some things just don't translate well into Dutch ... like tile improvements ("vakjeverbetering", I mean wtf)

    Got it today, installed it, didn't work. Got new Graphics Drivers, worked a bit. Games stuck at "initializing". Anyway...that intro reminds me somehow of Civ I *g*.

    Just got my Presell version -- it freaked me out a little that the blue box was hidden by cardboard. Smaller than I expected too.

    English Tech Tree. Correctly labeled disks. I feel left out getting a "correctly made" version.

    Good: I got mine today! (special edition) :D
    Bad: I have to work :sad:
    Good: It came with the English tech tree (not the French one)! :)
    Bad: The CD's have the mislabeling issue (minor problem only). :undecide:
    Good: It seemed to install and run through the startup movie just fine! :goodjob:
    Bad: I won't be able to tell anything more until I finish a project at work and go home to play. :aargh:

    I got mine yesterday!

    I've got the black terrain and floating eyeball leaders, but that hasn't stopped me from enjoying a game as the Mali. :D

    Best Buy on Wednesday. The girl I talked to on the phone sounded kind of frazzled, since she had been calls for Civ IV all day. :lol:

    There were only five copies left when I got there at 4:30.

    Got it on Thursday, after trying three GameStop / Software Etc. locations who said they only had copies for people who had reserved the game, found one which had 6 copies available. Installed it on my machine, and when starting the program the first time it said "your system is below recommended specifications, adjusting settings" or somesuch. Got the black terrain + cheshire cat problem (Radeon 7000 card). Played a couple of games with the workaround but having everything look like fog sucks too, so dropped some more $$ on a All-In-Wonder 2006 (9600 chipset) card. Now it works great.

    Reminds me of a MasterCard (TM) commercial:

    Civ 4 -- $50
    New graphics card -- $200
    Explaining it to your wife, flowers as a peace offering -- $60

    One More Turn -- priceless!!!

    This commerical is not affiliated in any way with MasterCard. Any resemblence to MasterCard advertising is merely a coincidence. If Take2 / Firaxis / MasterCard want rights to it, send a PM. :lol:

    I got it on Wednesday. Nobody had it in southern California on Tuesday, they said it was delayed. I have the black map/ eyes without a face problem too. :sad:

    Got it! finally!!!!! I'm so excited!! I' bought it yesterday afternoon, just after I had my driving license!

    It runs very well on my P4 2.5GHZ, 512 MB Ram, Radeon 9600XT, at a resolution of 1024X700, with all the settings on High (exept AA, I don't use it).

    well, see you "not very soon":D

    Got it in an EB games in a little town in MA on Friday, out of the 20 copies on the shelves. :D

    No installation problems (Radeon x600 256mb), and I got my English tech tree. Incorrectly labeled discs, but who cares? :)

    Yes, the disk labels should be "Installation & Play" and "More Installation".

    Has anyone gotten a pre-sale version from Amazon yet? My girlfreind and I orderd it a while ago and got the expidited shipping (3-5 bussiness days) and still have seen nothing. I guess 5 days would be next tuesday, but I was still wondering if anyone had seen anything in the mail yet.
