Name commonly used for three different board games and a series of computer games: Avalon Hill's board game Civilization (1986); Advanced_Civilization? (1991), its expansion; and Sid_Meier's_Civilization_-_The_Boardgame? (2002), based on the Civilization series of computer games, which were an obvious "homage" ;) to the original Civilization board game. Free``Civ is a free (as in freedom) networked clone of the Civilization computer game, distributed under the GNU General Public License. My impression is that people who like one of these games tend to like the others.
