Fan-made Card depicting the Circus building from Civ5

Game Info[]

Basic happiness-enhancing building of the Ancient Era. Requires an improved source of Horses or Ivory nearby.

Strategy[]

The Circus is quite valuable, since it increases 20xHappiness5.png Happiness as much as a Colosseum, but requires no maintenance! It is also available earlier, allowing you to boost 20xHappiness5.png Happiness very early in the opening game, if you need.

Civilopedia entry[]

A circus is a company of performers that often includes clowns, acrobats, jugglers, high-wire acts, trapeze artists, musicians, and animal trainers. Most circuses are traveling companies which move from city to city over the course of a season, while some remain in a single location year-round. In ancient Rome the circus was the name of a building where chariot racing, staged battles, jugglers, and other entertainments were held. The first Roman circus was the Circus Maximus, which at its largest could seat some 250,000 screaming citizens - roughly 25% of the city's population.
