If you haven't already played Civilization V, consider yourself both lucky and unfortunate. On one hand it's an outstanding strategy game, and arguably the best in the past few years. On the other hand it's so addictive your evening disappears in the blink of an eye. But that might be just what you're looking for.

You can experience why Civilization V is considered one of the best time-killers for free this weekend. Valve has unlocked the full game on Steam to everyone, and it will remain that way until 1:00PM PDT Sunday.

If you decide you like what Civilization V offers you can purchase it for 75% off. The original game, DLC, and its single expansion, Gods and Kings, are all included in this offer.

As much as I'd like to say Firaxis is doing this promotion for fun it's actually because Civilization V's second expansion is releasing on Sunday. That's also on sale but only for 10% off as a pre-order, but there's a lot included. Below is the description of what it entails:
