This set of Advancement cards are for the original Advanced Civilization game. Plus you get the advancement cards for the eastern expansion.
The game requires one of these decks for each player. They are printed front and back like the originals, and laminated for durability. The corners are trimmed, and on some there is a faint white line at the top you will need to trim off.
These sets are prohibitively expensive to have one for each player, later versions of the game simply used a check list for each player. You will not be happy with the amount of money you will need to spend for a complete set to play with.
If you used one or two decks for reference and had a check list for each player, it would work out better. I do not have a checklist for the original Advanced Civilization game.
