C-evo Files

C-evo is a freeware empire building game for Windows.
With a scope of several thousand years, it covers aspects of exploration and expansion, industry and agriculture, warfare and diplomacy, science and administration. C-evo follows the spirit of popular turn-based strategy games but with more emphasis on powerful AI and careful design of the rules, resulting in a true challenge.
The game is based on Microprose's famous Sid Meier's Civilization and has many basic ideas in common with it. This project arose from the wish to correct annoying design mistakes and AI weaknesses of Civ II.

Finding board gamers at Asgard Games - Houston

Max explains Mass Effect 3's Ending

I am not a first person shooter video gamer but I thought this was a comprehensive and brilliant answer.


I am reading up on the Campbell Award nominees to make my choice and this is so far better than the first part of Three Parts Dead and may convince me to continue reading it.

You've been playing Monopoly wrong.

Real Monopoly is Monopoly played according to the actual rules. Now as you read this I can just imagine you shaking your head and saying, "Right... Because getting rid of free parking is so going to revolutionise the game!"

But I'm not talking about the rule changes that everyone knows are house-rules. I'm talking about the rules changes that everyone thinks are part of the original rules. I could waffle on, but it'll save a lot of your time and my typing if I just present you with the relevant section of the rules:

BUYING PROPERTY...Whenever you land on an unowned property you may buy that property from the Bank at its printed price. You receive the Title Deed card showing ownership; place it face up in front of you.

If you do not wish to buy the property, the Banker sells it at auction to the highest bidder. The buyer pays the Bank the amount of the bid in cash and receives the Title Deed card for that property. Any player, including the one who declined the option to buy it at the printed price, may bid. Bidding may start at any price.
