Civilisation
It occurs to me that the game Civilization would make an excellent setting for a SF novel. There's a bunch of immortal leaders inexplicably in charge of nation states of short lived humans who proceed to mess with all sorts of aspects of their lives throughout time.

It further occurs to me that this may already have been done and in fact by Neil Gaiman's A Study in Emerald.

There are folks on CivFanatics who have cleaned that game up and won it in under 50 turns.

I feel oddly sad the story has such an anticlimactic ending.
