A Basic Version Of Civilization, Running As An Excel Spreadsheet [itch.io] “As part of a coding jam, s0lly decided to build a version of Civilization...a version based on the original 1991 video game, and which was made and runs inside a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. [...] it’s really just approximating the very early days of Civilization, with a handful of early-game units and the ability to settle cities or explore a map covered in the fog of war. As such, it’s missing essential Civ stuff like diplomacy and the ability to move through the ages.” [via: Kotaku] [YouTube][Trailer]

I used to have an Excel 97 workbook that implemented Pac-Man. It was pretty well-done!

OMG! Two of my very favorite human achievements, Civ and Excel, melded obscenely together into a Cronenberg. A+++

I spent many times in college up all night playing Civ. And I spent many times in my career up all night working with Excel.
