Civilization Is Getting yet Another Board Game

Taking everyone's favorite strategy game back to dining tables... again.

If you can't get enough of Civilization in the virtual world, then the board game company Fantasy Flight has some good news for you. Sid Meier's Civilization is getting yet another tabletop game, its first in seven years.

The upcoming Civilization: A New Dawn is a strategy board game where two to four players take the reigns of "history's most memorable empires." Just like in Civilization proper, over time players will expand their lands, attain new technology, do, uh, worldly stuff. Yet by a round of Civilization: A New Dawn's end, only one territory will rise and prevail.

Fantasy Flight previously developed Civilization: The Board Game way back in 2010, another tabletop game that sought to emulate the world-building of Civilization into a tangible game. Civilization: A New Dawn looks pretty similar to that very board game, but with far more depth in terms of its cards available and systems at play. For a new tabletop game player, it might be a more chaotic experience.

In the meantime, players can pre-order Fantasy Flight's latest tabletop video game adaptation or just look forward to the game when it hits shelves in Q4 of 2017.
