Where can I get a key for Civ V?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I just bought a rig and a Civilization V disk was in the DVD drive. I formatted that rig but wouldn't mind playing the game on another rig. Is there any way to get a new key or do I have to buy the game?

I would suggest returing the CD to the owner and both of you should consider re-examining your morals... You might consider how you would feel if you accidently left a CD in a computer you sold.

No idea what you're referring to but he sold it to me so it's my disk. Don't make assumptions when you have no idea of the circumstances. He doesn't have a rig in Afghanistan. All I'm asking is if I can buy a key or not. Damn some of the people on this forum...

HE SOLD ME HIS RIG KNOWINGLY WITH ALL THE GAMES ON IT. I COULD PLAY IT IF I WERE PLAYING IT ON THAT RIG.

Ya tell me about it..

I guess you could get a key off some of those CD key sites, some of them are very highly respected, some arn't. Don't know names or links sorry, but google will help your way smile.gif

He sold the COMPUTER to you, not the CD that was accidently included (according to YOUR description of the situation). From your description of the transaction it sounds like you both had NO knowledge of the CD being in the DVD player. Please correct me if I am mistaken, but that is the way I read it.

Maybe if you are so upset with the way some people respond to your thread you should consider that there might be another way of doing things...

Well its not rocket science. Did you buy the game? No.

Your asking for either confirmation to pirate the game over buying the game; knowing the philosophy on this site I think you do not need to post to know the answer.

Elsewise use google to find what you need.

LOL you guys are something else. I did not say it was accidentally in the drive, I said it was in the drive. He sold me the rig with all games on it including the passwords and rights to his WOW account, steam, and other games. The Civ V game was overlooked obviously otherwise I would have got the key to it.

Maybe you should have been more descriptive in your original post...? I apologize for jumping to conclusions with less than complete information from the OP.
