Great Leaders Make Great Civilizations

Advanced Civilization is a game where each player starts with a single nomadic tribe with no skills. As the supreme leader of your people, you use your abilities to grow and develop your people into a powerful and glorious empire. The question is - do you have what it takes to be written into history as an enlightened ruler of an Advanced Civilization?

Advanced Civilization is a challenging game requiring both skill and stamina. Players must manage their board position, financial accounts, their neighbors and the all important civilization advances. Excellent diplomatic, military and trading skills are needed to do well.

This year the format allows two opportunities to qualify eight players for the Final. Each qualifying heat will be eight hours long. For the qualifying heats, players will be dispersed among the boards randomly. If all players at a board agree, they may play by optional "fast play" rules for a shorter, six-hour game. The final round will consist of the best eight players from the qualifying heats. If there are eight or fewer boards, each winner is guaranteed a spot in the Final, with any remaining spots going to the best runner-ups which will be determined by % of the winning scores on their boards. For instance a player who scored 3900 on a board with a high score of 4000 would get 97.5%, but a player who scored only 3700 on a board with a high score of 3750 would be ranked higher at 98.7%. If there are more than eight boards, the eight highest scoring winners will be guaranteed a spot.

Beginners are welcome to attend this tournament. Beginners will be coached by the other players at their table and are free to ask for advice from other players. Alternatively, beginners may coordinate with the GM for a special training session. All players are expected to play to completion any game they start.
