In 2009 ownership transfered, which resulted in a complete renewal of the website. Other unique elements of Apolyton are the Civilization II Scenario League, the Diplogame Community and the more serious and aged memberbase. The famous Podcast series 'Polycast' originated on Apolyton and is still being maintained and produced by former co-owner DanQ.

Our Mission... CivFanatics.com prides itself in its mission to present the absolute best in fanatical coverage of Civilization, Civilization II, Civilization III, Civilization IV, and Civilization V. Our goal is to meet the challenges of all aspects of Civilization interests while being attentive enough to allow visitors the ability to guide it toward elements that are desired. Ultimately, this site hopes to provide itself as a vehicle to bring Civilization to life for all who enter and share the common interest in the concept of Civilization.
In the Good Old Days... In the beginning, CivFanatics was a small personal homepage hosted by Geocities (1998) and then at Xoom (1999). The old site title was Civilization Fanatics' Page, part of the Thunderfall Impressions site. After we moved the site to Strategy Gaming Online in March 2000, the site was renamed to Civilization Fanatics' Center. The CivFanatics site you see today really started after the move because server space is no longer a problem. We didn't have a downloads section and forums before the move.
