Sid Meier Humble Bundle launches

Sid Meier Humble Bundle launches

The Humble Sid Meier Bundle currently has an average price tag of $8.10, slightly higher than most previous bundles.

The Humble Bundle team has put together a pay-what-you-want package featuring several strategy games from Sid Meier's portfolio.

The Humble Sid Meier Bundle includes the complete editions of Civilization III and Civilization IV, Ace Patrol and Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies and Railroads! Paying more than the average will also unlock Civilization V and its Gods and Kings expansion.

As a special companion deal, paying more than the flat rate of $15 will also grant buyers the Brave New World Civilization V expansion which launched last year.

Notably, the average amount paid for the bundle is slightly higher than previous bundles. Whilst the average normally sits around the $6 mark, the Sid Meier Bundle currently has an average payment of $8.10.

The Bundle has 13 and a half days left on the clock and has already raised $923,700 from 114,000 buyers. The charity that is on the receiving end of a portion of donations this time round is Action Against Hunger.

Running alongside the Sid Meier Bundle is Humble's weekly sale which currently features a Codemaster's bundle. This includes Overlord, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising and Rise of the Argonauts with Dirt 3 and Overlord 2 available for paying above $6.

The Humble Sid Meier Bundle coincides with the launch of Civilization V's complete edition featuring both expansion packs mentioned above along with an updated scenario, 'Conquest of the New World Deluxe' which expands on the original by adding more civilizations and a larger policy and technology tree.

I'd say if you have a shift system set up, on an eight hour rota, about 12 people's whole lifetimes should cover it.

I thought about it just for the Railroad game, but then thought against it as I need my job to pay the bills.

Kenco sir you have made the wrong decision. Railroads is simply an awesome game.
