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 three opportunities to qualify
eight players for the Final. The first heat will be six hours
long and will be open to new players. For this heat, the special
"fast play" rules will be used. The second and third
heats will be eight hours long, though 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 attend the first heat, at which they may liberally consult
with the the GM. All players are expected to play to completion
any game they start.
