Im so happy that I must share my feelings with you guys.

This is what has happened. I bought Civilization from Gibson Games for 4.67$ + shipment on Ebay.

I just dont understand that no one saw this game and outbid me. I had a made an offer for maxium 5 GPB but won it for only 2.5.

I feel like a real arrrh!

One question, is there a difference between Avalon Hills version of the game and Gibsons? Can I use the Western border expansion for the Gibsons version?

This is it:

Nice score!

There's a German version of the Western Expansion map that looks like it would work with the Gibsons version of Civilization. I'm not sure though. Might be easiest and cheapest just to make your own.

Probably not
I have both, and from memory, probably not.

I really like the Gibson's board though. At one time we played with Gibson's board, Hartland's counters and AH's cards!

?
Are you guys saying that the official western expansion probably would not work together with Gibson Games version of Civ?

A friend of mine (who is also a member here) met a girl in person after chatting with her at ICQ for a couple of days.

Knowing that he likes boardgames she offered to give him as a gift an old game that she had from her father and was too complex to play.

It was AH's Civilization and my friend took it for free and in mind condition!!! What a lucky guy!!!

None of the expansions will work with the Gibson version, which is probably why you got it so cheap.
