After I received Civilization The Board, I felt being cheated because Mao was not in the game as advertised.   This is the first game I ever purchased from Fantasy Flight Games, and I wish I could receive Mao in game card as I was hoping to get.    I will not be happy, if there is not a way for me to have access to him for my board game.

 It is a tad ludicrous. Mao has been a Civilization mainstay since (I think?) the beginning.

I belive that Mao was only used in the 1st printing of the game.  Then he was switch to the female leader( don't know her name).  FFG said they wanted to have an even # of male/ female leaders.  But some think it's because in China you are not to have an image of Mao in anything that he may lose in( or said picture of him lose in).  ………since it is printed in China…….  well. :P 

Other then getting a 1st print box, not to sure how to get one.

You can't have Mao, they went to the trouble of building a nice tomb for him and they spend a lot of effort in keeping him preserved.
