Sid Meier's Civilization, significantly refined in sequels by Brian Reynolds and others, is a true classic of computer gaming. And now you can play the elaborate historical strategy game as an Excel spreadsheet. Behold CELLivilization, by s0lly.
This is my first game in Excel, with the first iteration (v1.0) created in just around a week for the OLC CODEJAM 2019
