         Legendary game designer Sid Meier, is the visionary behind Civilization. Originally released in
         1991 for the DOS operating system running on a PC, Civilization begins in ancient times as the
         player attempts to expand and develop an empire to „stand the test of time‟. It has been re-created
         numerous times for various platforms (including Microsoft Windows, Macintosh, Linux, Amiga
         and Super Nintendo). Beginning with Sid Meier‟s Civilization III, the game has been developed
         by Firaxis Games where many of its creators, including Sid Meier, are in residence. Civilization is
         one of the most popular strategy games of all time, with a global fan base of over 6 million.
