Fantasy Flight Games is planning to release Sid Meier’s Civilization: The Board Game designed by Kevin “Arkham Horror” Wilson.

This is a completely new game, not related to 2002′s Eagle Games’ Sid Meier’s Civilization: The Boardgame, by Glenn Drover, or its crowd-sourced house rules rewrite Civilization CHR.

Nor is it related to 1980′s Civilization by Francis Tresham, or the 1991 rewrite Advanced Civilization by Bruce Harper.

It is, however, related to the video game series which was inspired by / partially based on / coincidentally unrelated to [1] the original Tresham game, and which in turn was the basis for the 2002 game.

[1] Depending on who you believe.
