    Ok, I don't don't know if this question has been asked before but.

    The big question remains: Will "The King" return?

    Yeah baby! :cool:

    I don't think they will reuse easter eggs.

    I think you missunderstand. "The king" is much older than that. And he used to be much bigger than some once in a year litle easter egg. ;)

    True, but you know the old saying: you can lead a horse to water, but you can't teach an old dog to make a silk purse out of a bird in the hand.

    Seriously, MAS. Elvis is gone. He's left the building. There won't be any sequels.

    Oh. MAS didn't ask whether 'The King' would reappear in the game, just whether he was going to return in general, and I didn't want him to get his hopes up.

    In Civ1, the entertainer units were all Elvis.

    In Civ2, an Elvis impersonator was your happiness advisor, and your entertainers still looked like Elvis.

    In Civ3, they changed this, and Elvis was consigned to a once-a-year Easter egg.

    According to Europe, the King will return with gold in his hand; the castle will burn in the enemy land. :)

    You had to be playing a Regicide game on the date of his birthday. All the kings in the game would then become "The King."

    Yep he was. You must be playing the 8th of January (or change your windows clock and watch out for the king units, baby).

    We want Elvis back on CivIV Firaxis :cooool: !

    Elvis as a dead as you want him to be :) We can let him live! :cool:

    But does the Civ crew want him to be alive?

    I sure hope so! Elvis is to the Civilization series as lama's and broccoly are to the SimCity series.

    Simon sais: eat your broccoly,... and hail the king! :king:
