    Actually, there are three choices to make a complete answer.

    As for me, I'm not sure. I'm leaning towards preordering the Deluxe Edition from D2D, but I'll wait until closer to release for the demo/more info on all the buying options.

    Special Edition, because the Civ series is about the collection as much as playing the games (maybe more so as I have never touched my Civ3 disks).

    I'll buy Special edition. How? By going to one of Zagreb's multimedia shops. Where? In multimedia shop.

    I'll personally get the Regular Edition post-release by web-order from bol.com. So does that quality for the "other" option, or is :devil: only meant to imply illegal options? I don't consider web shops under the IRL shop answer.
    Uhm, the Deluxe Edition is only available as download from Steam and Direct2Drive. Amazon UK only sells the Regular Edition.

    Well, I bought the Steam Deluxe, but way too early. Now I wish I had waited and bought the D2D Deluxe because it looks like a much better deal.

    I'll get the physical regular edition, since the physical special edition is over-priced for my tastes (don't care about figurines and would only glance through the art book once), even if the cover graphics etc. are nicer in that one.

    I'll get it pre-ordered and from Amazon (most likely).

    You should still be able to cancel your steam deal (but i have no personal experience with that, i've only read it in the forum here).
