    'Twas the night before Civ5, when all through the house
    Not a computer was stirring, not even a Logitech mouse;
    The pre-order was DL'ed and Steam is on,
    In hopes that Firaxis soon would turn it on;
    While visions of nukes danced through their heads;
    And wives disappear with books in their beds,
    Have settled down for a long Fall's nap,

    When on the forums there arose such a clatter,
    I sprang to the screen to see what was the matter.
    To Steam's friendly icon I flew in a flash,
    Double-clicked the icon and threw up my game stash.
    The game on the breast of Catherine of Russia
    Gave lustre to the message on the game with blusher,
    When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
    But a new little message, and a loud sound I could hear,
    With a little new message, "Ready to Play",
    I knew in a moment the arrival of Civ5 Day.

    Proof that a Civ release day is way better than Christmas!

    (because Civ being released on a different day means I'll be able to do stuff with family on Xmas, of course!)

    :D
