This may interest someone who doesn't already have it.

I was wandering round "Snoopers Paradise" today (Kensington Gardens in Brighton) and I cam across something quite interesting.

It is an original copy of the Hartland Trefoil edition of Civilization.

It is in generally good condition. The box has a rip along the join in one corner, and is slightly concave. The game though appears complete with map, bagged pieces and cards all looking in good condition. The instructions are the original booklet which looks almost as if it were produced on a typewriter (which was exactly what you got all those years ago). I should add that the "timeline" is also present and correct.

This is the version of the game that predates the AH edition - to all intents and purposes though it is the same game.

The label says £22.

I was considering buying it and then putting it up for a GG Auction, but to be honest I don't need the gold or the hassle that much. (And I already have the original AH edition).

If you go to check it out, then go in through the turnstile entrance, and you will find it on the corridor towards the back just as you turn to the right.

I hope that information will be useful to someone - it has been sat there unloved for at least a week now and really needs a good home.

I didn't think you could find any kind of civilization in Brighton!
Seriously, buy it. Sounds like a killer deal.

I thought maybe they just got a McDonald's or something.

Well, it looks like it has now gone.

I went along to the shop to buy this on behalf of a fellow geek in the States and it has now sadly gone.

I wonder if I can work out which of you has bought it.

Alan,

Thanks for this - it was picked up by a friend for me back on that weekend and has finally made it's way into my sticky (I washed them before I even touched it - honest!) paws today. Apologies to whoever else was after this.
