A minimal abstraction of Civilization/Advanced Civilization that plays in about 20-30 minutes.

Players roll dice (with limited re-rolling) to gain food, resources, workers, money, and -- oops! -- disaster points. Workers are used to build cities (to give you more dice) and wonders (to give you victory points). Resources and money are used to build civilization advances that give various advantages. Disasters cost victory points.
