Additional info

The game's working title was Civilization 2000.

In 2011, researchers at MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and University College London presented a paper at the annual meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics which demonstrated the ability to improve the ability of a machine-learning system to win at Civilization II by using the text from its official game manual to guide the development of a game-playing strategy.

In June 2012, a Reddit user named Lycerius posted details of his decade long Civilization II game, since dubbed "The Eternal War". This garnered a great deal of interest from users of the site and the story quickly went viral, spreading across the web to many well known blogs and news sites. The game, which had been played since 2002, closely mimicked the regime found in the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, with three superpowers all engaged in a perpetual multiple-front total warfare.

    I played Civ2 to death... I remember splitting the Roman empire in two with a carefully placed nuclear strike. Was it Civ 2 or Civ 3?
