View Full Version : Remember Civ2?

Someone has been playing this one game for 10 years now, reaching the year 3991 AD...

His skills leave a lot to be desired, but that's what made the game so fascinating, that it appeared to have become an 'internet hit'.

Original report: http://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/uxpil/ive_been_playing_the_same_game_of_civilization_ii/
Screenshots: http://imgur.com/a/rAnZs
It became so popular that it got its own subreddit:

Thunderfall wiped off his balsam to report it too: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=464175

I always put the subforums down as guidelines especially seeing as we have so few new posts and I'm pretty sure everyone just clicks 'new posts.'

There's no subforum for Civ2 and I didn't want to post it in a Civ4 or Civ5 subsforum. I'm not a stupid as I look. ;)

I wouldn't fancy putting it in the subs forum either, a battleship might sneek in! ;)

I doubt the subs are scared of a battleship. Destroyers on the other hand...

Civ2 might count into "Other Other games". If no airship bombs it that is.

On a related note, I feel offended to be named a civ2 n00b by someone who wasn't even born when I was already virtually pillaging the english landscape.

Not a civ2 n00b just a general n00b. Also, I was playing civ2 when it came out you'd probably have one up on me for civ1.

That's pretty cool. Coincidentally I recently heard something similar. Someone has been playing this one game for 10 years now, reaching the year 3991 AD.
