Civilization: A new dawn is the latest "Civilization" themed boardgame released to date. The game is only a couple of days old, we stumbled upon this by watching a review online and then seeing it the same day in the local store. I really liked what I saw in the video review as it looked like a more fast paced and streamlined version of the other civilization game by Fantasy Flight Games (Civilization: The board game) which though a good game can be a bit much to teach and play with new gamers.

This version of Civilization is a fast paced streamlined version of the basic ideas that make a Civilization game: expand territory through spreading of your own culture, building wonders and several different ways to win the game through culture, military and exploration (not so much economy in this game).

Full review and lots of pictures can be read here:

In the 1990s there where two different civ games. Sid Mier had a PC game that allowed you to make up countries. There was a board game in which you were established countries. I assume this in t the board game version but the PC version translated to a board game?

Yeah this is the "non historical" version of Civilization, using historical leaders as player characters but making the countries and opponents random like the PC game.
