The stable Open Source version 2.0.0 of Civilization is out.

FreeCiv.org

Now with a Windows installation file ( for all you Windows users ).

FreeCiv is much like Civilization II, but has some features none of the Sid Meier's Civilization games has. For instance when a nation is pressed ( both by war or politicaly ) a rebel group may arise and make their own nation ( as an ai ).

The game is great to play online in, as people can constantly join and leave, if someone leaves the player is left as an AI, but if another comes, he/she can take over and use the player as control.

In fact, this Civilization game is much better suited for online play than Sid Meier's games, which are best for single player.

Civilization is a game where you take control of a Civilization to stand the test of time.

You play from 4000 BC to 2000 AD.

You then research new techs, etc.

You can win in verious ways. E.g. Depomatic ( being the most leading in friendship and relations, also trade is a help here, basically it means who has the highest score ) or Domemation ( the one who controls most of the planet ).

You need to do a lot untill you get to victory; build cities, control your people, keep the enemies at bay, and your friends close, and a hell lot of other crap.

It's quite a demanding game, but damn it's fun when you get into it.
