Divisions: Varsity, Junior Varsity, Middle School
Competition Type: Individual, Computer Game

International History Olympiad co-founder David Madden credits Sid Meier’s Civilization series of historical strategy computer games with driving his interest in history, dating back to the original version of the game in the mid 1990’s. For over 25 years, games in the Civilization series have been both enlightening and addictive, and we are delighted to feature a competition using Civilization as an official medal event at the Olympiad.

The version of Civilization that we play will be determined in advance of the Olympiad and then be announced here.
