        Hasbro bought both Microprose and Avalon Hill.  They own both sides
of the debate.  (Microprose had bought the original publisher of the board
game Civilization, Hartland Trefoil, long before.)
        The only company ever associated with a Civilization product
which is not now owned by Hasbro is Activision, makers of Civ:CTP.
