I wasn't really taken in by this game as much as some other people, but it certainly was a fun game, especially those wild expansion packs for Civ II. Those were freakin' incredible.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 18:52 GMT
The much anticipated Civilization quiz Thanks, it was fun. This game and its sequels are the reason I did excellent in world cultures and history classes from intermediate to high school. If you read the Civipedia, you'd end up learning quite a bit. My favorite games, but alas college life does not allow for much gaming anymore.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 18:59 GMT
Argh! I missed the easy ones because I spent so much time trying to spell the Mexican Capital.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 19:04 GMT
definitely asking way too recollection of exactly what they had. "Napoleon" should be accepted; so should "USA;" "Alexander" as well; Even alternate spelling of Genghis Khan (I've always written Chingis Khan).
Apr 12th, 2009 at 19:11 GMT
I remember the stuff from Civ III much more, since it came during my premium slacker days (high school/college). I had forgotten that some of the leaders were different between games (for example, Civ III used Catherine the Great for Russia instead of Stalin, Joan of Arc for France instead of Napoleon, etc)
Apr 12th, 2009 at 19:19 GMT
The fact that it doesn't accept USA, Napoleon, or Friedrich is absurd. I didn't get Alexander the great, but it would also be ridiculous if you had to type in the whole thing. Still, great quiz.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 19:27 GMT
25/42. Not bad considering I've never played it!
Apr 12th, 2009 at 19:36 GMT
See, this just makes me want to play Civ. Awesome quiz.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 19:41 GMT
The hard part was figuring out which ones from the later versions of the game were in nr. 1! (Doing this for civ 4 would be awesome, not to mention the wonders of the world... (the ones in civ, not the actual ones, which exists).
Apr 12th, 2009 at 19:45 GMT
Great quiz about a great game! But I think Queen Elizabeth I should be accepted.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 19:48 GMT
all the sequels threw me off, because they are the ones i played the most! Many of the leaders changed and there are twice as many civs, i swear.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 19:50 GMT
typed in Frederick the Great, not the better spelling. Also typed Napoleon but without the Bonaparte. The real point of my comment is to ask if anybody else has an add for "Civony" upon looking at the most missed. Scantily dressed women, castles & journeys, and computer gaming, how could I lose?

12/42, and I've never even heard of the game (now if you want to talk Roller Coaster Tycoon, I'm with you!)
Apr 12th, 2009 at 20:08 GMT
Brilliant game. Brilliant quiz.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 20:09 GMT
I think that "Napoleon" should be acceptable for Napoleon Bonaparte, as well as "Frederick II" or "Fredrick the Great" for Germany. Really good quiz, though. I hope they do the rest of the games. The Civilization 4 quiz including the expansion pack civilizations would be massive.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 20:14 GMT
Can't Ramses II be acceptable? He has a bunch of different spellings for his name.
Comment below threshold:
Apr 12th, 2009 at 21:50 GMT
lol, wtf is this game and why do I want to play it, c'mon any game that has Abe Lincoln as leader and Azetca as a country can't be half bad.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 22:26 GMT
Good quiz- maybe a quiz about Age of Mythology soon. That was a great game.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 22:35 GMT
Great quiz, please accept Ramses(an accepted spelling apparently,) Napoleon and Bonaparte, the rest accept just first or last names it seems. Weren't there more leaders/countries in later games? You could expand this to include them all, maybe labelled with which game they're from though.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 22:38 GMT
it should accept Queen Elizabeth and Napoleon. Boo.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 22:39 GMT
Awesome quiz, but yeah, I agree that it should be more flexible on what it accepts. A big Civ II quiz would be awesome, with both the male and female leaders as well as all the wonders and maybe the first three or so cities for each civ rather than just the capitals.
Apr 13th, 2009 at 00:08 GMT
How about Temujin for Genghis Khan? That was his name, Genghis Khan was just a title. But then the game probably called him Genghis Khan. I wouldn't know because I only started playing at Civ III.
Apr 13th, 2009 at 00:47 GMT
I was trying to use Civilization Revolution as the basis for my answers as that's the only one I've played. That has a few different leaders too as well as some extra Civ's to play with (Spain, Arabs and Japan off the top of my head).
Apr 13th, 2009 at 01:09 GMT
6/42. Probably since I've never played this.
Apr 13th, 2009 at 02:01 GMT
I've never even heard of the game and managed 22 just by guessing real world civilizations and capitals.
Apr 13th, 2009 at 02:09 GMT
i got 15 not bad since ive never even heard of the game, and my first correct guess was berlin, lol
Apr 13th, 2009 at 02:39 GMT
I've never heard of this game before, but after this quiz I looked it up and now I want it. It sounds awesome. I'm going to go buy one of the games tomorrow, thanks Sporcle! Any suggestions one which one I should get? From looking around, consensus appears to be Civ IV or Civ II.
Apr 13th, 2009 at 02:51 GMT
played the game sooooo much. should accept "mongol" for mongolian; other than that i just forgot that stalin was the russian ruler since all the later games made catherine the default russian
Apr 13th, 2009 at 03:16 GMT
I think Beijing should be accepted for Peking. I tried every Chinese city I could think of but didn't go with Peking as I'd already tried Beijing and that didn't work. Other than that, awesome quiz. Makes me wanna play Civ again, preferably Civ II, that one was always my favorite. :)
Apr 13th, 2009 at 03:21 GMT
Favorite game EVER. EVER.
Apr 13th, 2009 at 03:28 GMT
And may I also say, one hundred billion cool points to whoever suggested this game. I hope many more come, and I'll take on any of you Civ IV players in online lol.
Apr 13th, 2009 at 03:42 GMT
I liked AoE better and never played Civilization, but I did manage half the answers.
Apr 13th, 2009 at 04:16 GMT
@mungar: Civ IV (and its expansions) are AMAZING.
Apr 13th, 2009 at 05:02 GMT
I do think "Frederick" should be acceptable, it's the same person, just the more common spelling for him.
Apr 13th, 2009 at 06:17 GMT
THANK YOU!! I've been waiting for this game for some time now. I've wasted more hours on Sporcle and Civ combined than I think I have doing anything productive in my life. And now they have been combined into one 'Epicquiz' (new word, used when describing quizzes such as this). Can't wait for the quizzes for II, III, and IV!
Apr 13th, 2009 at 06:34 GMT
FINALLY. This quiz came finally out. I did pretty bad for someone who had all the others except this one. Still got 32
Apr 13th, 2009 at 11:46 GMT
As a matter of fact, I did play Civilization for 15 hours straight. On more than one occasion! Oh to be a slacker in college again. 42/42.
Apr 13th, 2009 at 11:50 GMT
30 points - not mucj, since I loved that game. Monkey Island and Civilization are mine top two of all times. Monkey Island because of the humour, and Civilization because it is so simple and so real at the same time. It helped me to realize wars on Earth occur every now and then, when new generations forget what they look like. It is also great because it shows importance of science...
Apr 13th, 2009 at 14:22 GMT
perhaps a bonus answer... if you chose to be your own civilization (i.e. not choosing those listed in this quiz), you could create your own names, or it would default to hebrew, wouldnt it? king solomon and jerusalem as capital? or was that civ2? ill go wikipedia and check...
