Description of History of the World

"A very faithful computer translation of the board game, this covered the course of civilization from 3000 BC to 1900 AD.

A quick-playing game, it divided history into seven epochs with each player drawing a new civilization every epoch (turn). Beware -- the Roman and British Empires have a tremendous effect and other plays must join forces to cut them down to size. If size isn't everything, then turn placement surely is." [excerpt from M. Evan Brooks' Homepage]

Overall, a fun game that will appeal to fans of the board game, but probably to "dry" for others.

For anyone who cannot run this game under Windows 10, try WineVDM ( All 16-bit games cannot normally under Windows 10 can be run by WineVDM. This is required for people who love old Windows 95 era games.
