Any fan of the Civilization series knows how easy it is to get sucked into a campaign and lose hours, if not a full night, to the strategy game. Playing on the addictive nature of the game several years ago, Firaxis and 2K Games created several humorous videos around a fictional group that looks to support Civ junkies struggling with their addiction.

With Civilization V just around the corner now -- you can mark September 21 in your calendar -- the companies have brought back CivAnon, a "12-step support group for the most hardened Civ addicts", updated for modern concerns, like the franchise's broader audience and iPhone editions of the game acting as a gateway drug.
