Sid Meier’s Civilization is a turn-based strategy game series that has been a fan favorite since 1991 since before a lot of people reading this (and the person writing it) were born. From then until now, there have been six official games, with the most recent being released on different platforms from 2016 to 2020. That kind of longevity is something that game developers dream of.

That being said, if you’re looking for a switch up from Civilization VI after the expansion packs, or whichever game in the series that you’re playing at the moment, but want something in a similar vein, we’ve got you hooked up here. Here’s a list of 12 games like Civilization.

Some of them are in here because they’re directly inspired by Civilization, some of them are in here because they live in the same genre, and one game on this list is even made by the same developer. Either way, there’s sure to be something on here for you.
