HowTo / Notes

The City, Provence, Empire game type does not work. Once you select your City name, it opens the window asking if you want to start a new game. If you try to close that window, wine quits.

According to the site, there are a DOS and a Windows95 version of the game. Comments 114 and 117 there describe how to run these on DOSBox and newer Windows versions.
