Great Educational Side of Civilization VI
Sid Meier’s Civilization V as a teaching tool for schools. great wonder is that it took so long. Even a decade ago.
For millions of others, it’s proven that the “maps and chaps” approach to history doesn’t have to be a snooze.
This educational focus was very much on my mind as I headed to New York last week to play the most recent build of the upcoming Civilization VI (due out in October),
and I’d convinced myself that developer Firaxis was working more educational elements into its core game than it had before.
Civ series is a little like that,Civilization VI particularly so.
newest game allows players to build their cities’ districts over multiples tiles on the gridded map rather than a single one as in Civ V, and figuring out which districts to place by which imparts some basic knowledge of city planning through gameplay alone
