Civ IV pre-order deal gets fancy

Civilization IV pre order box art (225)If you were a fan of Civilization IV, you were already giddy by yesterday's announcement that Sid Meier's precious baby would be arriving on store shelves a month early. Now you have even more reason to be excited: if you pre-order the game, you will receive the aptly titled Civilization IV Pre-Order Edition. On top of a very nice game box - which looks very much like the Gideon Bibles one finds in hotels - you will also receive "a CD soundtrack, a keyboard template, a tech tree poster, and a spiral-bound manual." Very nice, indeed – and the best part is that there is no additional charge to you, the strategy-loving fan.
