Rex Argentum - The 25th Anniversary of Civ competition
To celebrate twenty five years of Civ and the imminent arrival of Civilization VI, WePlayCiv has decided to launch a competition dedicated to those glorious victories, humbling defeats and numerous other incidents over the years.
We've all played a lot of Civ over the years, some of us are Single Players devotees, others like nothing better than pitting their wits against their forum buddies in a Multiplayer showdown. For others the height of Civ goodness comes from the titanic struggles between Civ forums and the meta game that ensues from such activities. Then there are Single Player Democracy Games, Succession Games, One City Challenges..... the joys of Civ go on and on.
What we all share though are a head full of memories from over the years, be they a great military victory, a perfectly executed civil service slingshot, snatching a memorable victory from the jaws of certain defeat or even just sharing your love and knowledge of Civ with a newbie and watching them blossom into a rival Civ master!
With the imminent release of Civ VI, I'm sure we are all hoping that we are about to set off on another series of journeys through the ages, whether it will be raiding foreign shores with Harald Hardrada's Viking Longships, churning up the dusty steppes underfoot with Tomyris and her Saka Horse Archers or developing a spy network beyond compare with Catherine de Medici and her Flying Squadron.
Write about your favourite Civ memory from over the years and be in with a chance to win Steam software of your choice to the values listed in the rules below. It can be a memory of your favourite civilization, favourite leader, favourite strategy, favourite game moment, favourite forum event, whatever brings you most joy from all those hours in front of your computer, either in-game or on the forums.
One entry per person only.
Entry must relate to Civ1, Civ2, Civ3, Civ4, Civ5, SMAC, Civ BE, Colonization, Civ 4 Colonization or Civ Revolution, either via in-game actions or via activity relating to the prementioned games via a Civ forum.
