EDIT: The 24 hour sale is over,


 
Civ 5 is $11.98/8.99€/£5.99 from Greenman Gaming for 24 hours. You can use a referral link to get $5 store credit back, 
You receive a Steam Serial key in the mail, long live the age of digital distribution, 20 minutes later i was playing.  

The following link should give you a 5$ refund in your store wallet after purchase to spend on other stuff like a copy of magicka wich is exactly 4.88 atm
Following the link does not give any feedback as far as i could see that you will get the refund, it just works.
 
updated: Referral link:  http://www.greenmangaming.com/?gmgr=zexuhubo

Well if you don't own civ yet then you should jump on this. It is a steamworks game so I believe you can just use the code this site gives you and tie it to your account.

Have they fixed the game yet? Last time I played it, the game crashed every half hour or so.

Well considering a game this popular would have been torn apart by the media if that were the case and that a match can take upwards of 8 hours on a large map my guess would be if that issue ever existed it has long been patched and/or your personal computer just has issues.
 
hell even on the quick look that's shot in its first week after release makes no mention of it.

Thanks for the tip. 
Didn't get any credit, but it seems like they charged me less than 8,99€, so I'm still happy.

Does the referral link work even though you already have an account? 
I have a feeling that was why we didn't get any credit when I bought it.

Yeah, although you could just visit Cheapassgamer.com.  This deal is on the front page there, as well, alongside a dozen others.  Plus, if you join the site, they'll email you when a deal on a specific game you're looking for surfaces.  Still, I know folks (like me) are lazy and don't visit every site all the time, so some referral thread might be a good idea.  Perhaps a "sticky" of some sort.

It's showing as £19.99 for me. I guess this was a pricing mistake that has since been fixed.

EDIT: it actually seems like might have been a real deal and it has ended. Oh well.

Yeah it was a real deal, they even edited the frontage to say they were expecting it to go viral and  put one of their admins on standby just in case.
All in all it was a pretty good publicity stunt if the twitter activity was any indicator.

Just bought the game, regged the key through steam. But it seems like you can download it through gamersgate.

I assumed it requred steam? Is it just a big Steam installer?
