I played this game a lot in my late teens, then we got stuck on the grain/famine rule. The game brings back happy memories so keen to play with the next generation now.

I bought a copy of GIBSON GAMES Civilization from eBay in the UK. Sadly it has a trade card and an EGYPT population token missing.

Reaching out to see who might have any donor parts. Thanks in advance for any support.

GIBSON GAMES Civilization UK English Edition

WANT

Commodity (trade) cards:
1 x cloth (value 5)

THRACE (purple owl)
1 x round population tokens

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

So you mention "Hasbro Civilization" which I would assume is Avalon Hill, but then later on you mention "GIBSON GAMES". I am not at home at the moment to check colours, but which edition is that you actually have?

Currently, at least to me, it is a little confusing. cool

The population token you could work around, but the Cloth Card is problematic for playing.

add *your edition* to your bgg collection.

mark it as want to buy, want in trade and need parts. (add detail where necessary)

then do a find trades and see what comes up..

If it actually is a population token that is round then it is the Gibsons edition, the population tokens are square in AH with round cities.
