Keeping Things Relatively Civil - Sid Meier's Civilization 1 and 4

It's our birthday and we'll talk about turn-based strategy games if we want to!

That's right, this episode Eddie and Jay take a look at two games from Sid Meier's Civilization series, namely Civilization 1 (62) and Civilization 4 (98).

Aside from the fact it should obviously be called Civilisation and not Civilization, will we find fault with the seminal turn based strategy franchise?

As promised, we also delve into PalWorld, discussing whether we think it will be the 'one' that finally topples the Pokemon empire (spoilers: it won't.)

Having been friends since college, when Jay revealed plans for what would later become BLG, Eddie jumped at the chance to be involved. Eddie has been a gamer for as long as anyone can remember, citing The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask as his favourite of all time.
Coming from a writing background, having spent over a decade running WWEBlog, Jay decided it was time to go in a different direction. That direction was gaming and thus the Bucket List Gamers (and Bucket List Board Gamers) were born!
