Computer sim explains why hippies became extinct

Sean Masterson 1

Hippie Civilization

In my simulations (Civilization II) the Hippie tribe ruled the world. Their leader was called, Man. The game's opening message would read, "Man, you have risen to become leader of the Hippies."

Hippie technology was world class and the reason for a constant stream of exchange offers and threats Of course, Hippie attempts to fob off other covilisations with cartographic treasures inevitably met with a churlish, "We have no need of your useless Hippie maps."

Yeah? But you jealously eyed the Hanging Gardens of Skunkweed, didn't you?
