Civilization: The Card Game ...

Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization Civilization is a civilization-building game that plays in a much shorter time frame than classical games of the genre. As of early 2015, it ranked as the #3 overall game on Boardgamegeek. Play is free to Tribune level members. All others must be registered for the Pre-Con to participate prior to Monday when Sustaining level members are free to join the third heat.

AGE will be run as a tournament with three heats. For the heats, the default will be 3-player games, with 2-player games as necessary. Players will be paired at random except that players who have played together in one heat may request to play at separate tables in other heats. The format will be Heats Most Wins (with GM specified tiebreakers, see below). Players are asked to bring copies of the game to ensure that there will be enough for all to play. Because AGE is classified as a B event this year, newcomers must attend the demo if they expect to be taught how to play.

Rules for Advancement: In 2014 there were two triple heat-winners and 13 additional double heat-winners. That left one advancement slot for winners of single heats. (In 2013 four single winners advanced.) Unless attendance drops dramatically, the structure of the semifinals and Final will continue to be four 4-player semis feeding a 4-player Final. Tiebreakers for determining advancement to the semifinals are as follows:
1. Most Wins
2. Second best heat placement
3. Percentage of the winner's score in second best game
4. Win in first Heat entered
5. Margin of victory in wins
6. Brought a copy of the game
7. Coin flip

In the semifinals, triple winners will be seeded as evenly as possible among the tables. (If there are no triple winners then double winners will be seeded evenly instead.)

Tiebreakers in Individual Games: Ties will be broken by player order (e.g., start player wins ties.)

Note that AGE's honorable withdrawal rule trumps the normal WBC prohibition against leaving a multi-player game before it ends.
