Uber strategy games designer Sid Meier will be making a rare public appearance in the UK next week to meet and greet fans of his strategy titles as part of a push to publicise the recent and most commendable release in the excellent Civ series, Civilization IV.
The Sid-ster will be on hand at the Oxford Street branch of HMV next Friday the 25th of November, from 1pm until 3.30pm where he'll be chatting about all aspects of Civ, signing copies of the game and even possibly modelling the latest in haute cardigan couture.
We've always been massive fans of Mr Meier's work, remembering not just the classic Civ series, but also Alpha Centauri and Pirates! as well as many of those early Microprose classics like F19. So we advise you to get down there early, otherwise we'll be way ahead of you in the queue and waving signed copies like ardent fanboys.
