True, but nobody does anything about it, lots of times because there's no company to sue.

And here, you can download the game for free (and it's legal) :)

Abandonware is not legal.
Legal was the wrong word to use there.  I should have said, most likely, you're not going to go to jail for it, nor is any company going to sue you.  To keep things on the up and up, I've removed the link.

Open source, on the other hand, is totally legal, so here's a link to freeciv:

http://www.freeciv.org

It has a lot of different play types and is pretty similar to Civ.

Man are you lucky if you've never played Civ! Wish I could discover it anew :)

www.civfanatics.com

www.apolyton.com

Anyway, this are two great Civilization sites. You can buy Civ really cheap these days and with Civilization 4 coming out around X-mas this year you've also something to look forward to.

Here they're gathering all Civ 4 related info: http://www.civfanatics.com/civ4/info/

If you want to buy a Civilization game now I would try and get Civilization III Complete. Its the basic game with both X-packs a great value for the money and the most polished version of Civ you can get atm.

Oh and say goodbye to your friends and loved ones before you start playing, you might not see them for a while :D

And while you're there, join the Civ3 demogame (saw "dgame" mentioned in the thread earlier). It's an interactive single player game where you discuss and vote on everything. A new "term" is about to start, so if you ever wanted to be one of the Civ3 advisors, now's your chance to nominate yourself in one of the nomination threads!

(do a careful search in other forums there, and you'll see what my nick is on that site).
