PocketCiv?
« on: February 24, 2012, 08:40:09 AM »
Anyone ever given this one a whirl?

I'm thinking about giving it a try one of these lunch breaks.  Looks like a spiffy little civ-builder that can be played quickly.

I haven't really played it much but the program works well.

Just played over lunch. This is a HARD game... even just to make it to the end.

Three tries and the best I did was 219 Glory!

Reading the rules is like telling people you don't like duct tape.

Speaking of portable Civ, those that have an iPad really should get Civilization Revolution. It's quick Civ in all its glory and able to be put in a backpack!
