Thanks for the comments!
I agree TheCyberDruid; this video definitely felt short to me. I kept trying to squeeze more into that 10 minutes and just couldn't pack it all in. There is so much to this game that you could easily talk about it for an hour and still have stuff left out. For instance, the manual itself a real accomplishment, with over 150 pages and lots of great commentary about the game and its design. I would also have liked to mention the many sequels, spinoffs, free civ, etc.
I'm not sure what the best overall version is, extralife. I never played it on the Amiga but only on DOS. The turn-based strategy games I played most on my Amiga were Empire and Warlords. My dad and I spent many great evenings playing Empire!
