Sid Meier’s Civilization: The Board Game is now on sale at your local retailer and our webstore! Forge an empire to stand the test of time using innovative game mechanics with multiple paths to victory.
Will you lead the greatest army in the world to conquer your foes? Or will you be the first to journey to the stars, becoming the most technologically advanced civilization known to man? The choice is yours.
Designed by Kevin Wilson, Sid Meier’s Civilization: The Board Game is inspired by the legendary video game series developed by Firaxis Games, a 2K Games studio. Players are tasked with guiding an entire civilization throughout the ages, taking ownership of your people’s technology, economy, culture, and military, as well as all the choices that go along with them. There are four different paths to victory, and each is riddled with opposition.
In Sid Meier’s Civilization: The Board Game, 2-4 players take on the roles of famous leaders in charge of historical civilizations, each with their own abilities. Players will be able to explore a modular game board, build cities and buildings, fight battles, research powerful technology, and attract great people by advancing their culture. No matter what your play style is, there is a civilization for you!
