My buddy Sergio has a running Advanced Civilization game with some of his students. After several invitations, I'd love to play with this group, but that game is just too long for me these days. Here's some shorter (but not short) civ games I think the group might like to consider as alternatives.

BTW, when the new stripped-down version of MegaCiv comes out, that will be added to this list!

Who says a civ game can't be a civ game in SPACE? Now streamlined with very little downtime.

Academy again. Less a civ and more a political intrigue game.

This game can be tough to learn, but quite rewarding for those that do.

Probably the lightest game on this list. More a euro than the rest.
