So very many High School hours were spent playing Civ II on the old x386 PCs in my computer lab. I'd typically stay after class until at least 5pm, picking up a cheese steak from down the street (in a bad neighborhood of Philadelphia) and game the afternoon away. I have never, however, played the original! Great listing, thanks!
Thanks dear Charlie. The original still has its unique charms, mind.
I hear you Charlie...if I had a nickle for every hour that I spent playing games like Civilization...
And one for every adventure puzzle solved...
