Trivia

Civilization title

Call to Power is not related to Sid Meier's Civilization in any way. It is made by a completely different development team, and the only reason it shares a name is because it is based on the Avalon Hill board game Civilization. Trademark lawsuits related to MicroProse's franchise allowed one game based on the board game to be made with the Civilization name, and any sequel must drop the title. The similar gameplay is more coincidental than anything, though it may have been inspired by Sid Meier's Civilization.

Sales

In 1999, Civilization: Call to Power won the Gold-Award from the German VUD (Verband der Unterhaltungssoftware Deutschland - Entertainment Software Association Germany) for selling more then 100,000 (but less then 200,000) units in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
