Obtaining or Installing Civ 3

Civ 3 Manual

The original releases came with a thick paper manual, a keyboard template, and a printed tech tree. On some CDs the manual is provided as a PDF, and sometimes a PDF manual is in the application folder.

Gog.com includes the manual PDF as a downloadable item after purchasing the game. Steam has the PDF manual available online.

Note that the in-game Civilopedia help system is very thorough, and in some cases more accurate than the manual. Especially when playing custom rules, scenarios, or conquests.
