Sid Meier's Civilization: The Boardgame is a board game from 2010. It's a strategy game that supports 2-4 players and plays for 180 minutes or more. The game was designed by Kevin Wilson. It has won a couple of awards and been nominated for a few more.
The game has received two expansions: Fame and Fortune in 2011 and Wisdom and Warfare in 2013.
Victory is achieved in one of four ways: through military (by conquering one other capital), through science (by discovering Space Flight, the only level five tech in the game), through economics (by gaining fifteen coins) or through culture (by being the first to reach the end of the culture track).
