Game On With This Crazy Good Sid Meier's Civilization Deal

This piece was written by the people who run the Cracked Store to tell you about products that are being sold there.

If you're a devotee of turn-based strategy games, the Civilization series is your temple of worship. With 15 E3 awards, including Best PC Game and Best Strategy Game, Civ VI is the crowning gem of a franchise with 30 years of crowning gems. PopSugar calls it "the game that you never knew you needed," and Cracked.com calls it "Yeah, what they said, but with more jokes about RoboCop."

For the gamers, Civ VI is like Risk meets Age Of Empires. For the non-gamers, imagine someone shouted, "WHAT IF I RULED HALF OF ASIA AND THEN DECIDED TO CHALLENGE THEODORE ROOSEVELT?" and then someone else shouted, "I CAN PROGRAM THAT."

The game challenges you to build an empire that stands the test of time, taking your civilization from the Stone Age to the Information Age as you wage war, conduct diplomacy, advance your culture, and go head-to-head with history's greatest leaders. In Civilization VI, you'll also interact with other civilizations based on where they are in their development and cooperate and compete with your friends. Plus, you can unlock boosts that speed up your civilization's progress through history. Basically, it's like you're playing a video game from God's POV, if God was the type of guy to try to team up with Gandhi in order to lay waste to a whole hemisphere.

Usually the game goes for $59.99, but if you head over to the Cracked Shop now, you can pick it up for $29.99, redeem on Steam, and start playing instantly.

Bow at the altar of Megaboy in search of your gaming muse. For The Old School Testament is the light and the way. Are We Not Mushroom?
