I have enjoyed a few of the Civilization games in the past, is this one worth the $30?

Just a reminder. Shop Smart

I had a great time playing Civ with you, @DracoIsmenium and @Majordomo. I might pick up Beyond Earth on the sale.


I’ve never played a Civ game but I’m REALLY tempted. I like the setting but I’d be a major scrub. I’m way too defensive in strategy games.

Let me know if you do. Civ games are a great relax, have some great conversation game.

I play Civ 5 with a handful of people from time to time and am similarly outclassed; thus, I take the king-maker position: latch on to the nearest powerful player, become their friend, and support them in world domination :wink:

Everything I’ve heard about Civ:BE from my friends that have it is it’s basically a really fancy mod for Civ 5, so on sale might be the only way to go on this one.

So being the kissass is a strategy?! Man. If anyone buys this please report back!

Read: partner :wink:

Honestly though, I’m terrible about militarizing in a timely manner during FFA and usually have a pretty bitching economy, so I just siphon my excess to support the power- (and money-) hungry.


Honestly this game has very little replayability right now. I played two games when the game came out and instantly had zero interest in playing the game again. I would personally wait for any expansions before you play, just because the state of it right now means you are going to spend little time actually playing. I guess you could grab it while it is on sale now just for the future but it is probably a little risky.

edit: It is better right now to just play Civ V with the expansions and mods

Added bonus: when those expansions, etc., come out for it, the sale will be more than 50% off :wink:


I wish I had made this a wiki so that everyone could edit it when the new sales roll in. I’ll keep it updated best I can with the daily sales!
