In short, you share a deck of common cards from which to build buildings, whilst also having your own deck based on your civilisation - which are nicely thematic. You use resources you gather to build these buildings which give you a variety of benefits at a variety of times (when you build, each round, when you activate, when you do something specific). Resources are gained by "razing" your own cards or building certain buildings or "making deals" (dedicating a card to obtain that resource each round). Over five rounds you build up you "common" structures and, generally, then overbuild them into your more valuable civ specific structures. However, common structures can be "razed" (destroyed) by your opponents if they have enough "swords" - this leaves a foundation in place for you to build over and you also get some wood, so it is not all bad news, however. As you build your civilisation up, you amass victory points from your cards and most VP is the winner.
Also worth mentioning the fact the game can be played solo - the designer has even made available an online campaign sheet you can follow to make it more engaging - and this works very well.
If I had one complaint it would be that perhaps the game goes on one round too long - four (in my opinion) would be better than five rounds - and in fact the solo campaign rules do use only four rounds.
- Great quality resource tokens. Little apples for food, little brown logs, little grey stones. This is 100 times better than the farm game Agricola which just gave a bunch of different coloured wooden cubes to represent different resources.
- The cards in the game are very nicely illustrated, and special abilities on the cards are very clear and easy to understand.
- There are a lot of faction cards but you only use a few each game, so each game is very different. The first time I played as Romans and I had a special card that let me send a couple of men to remove an opponent's building, but the next few games I never came across the same style card and the game had completely different play. This is really a big feature for replayability.
- The game is a bit competitive, but really not much overt aggression. You can normally just attack another player's basic buildings, not advanced buildings, and it doesn't hurt them much to be attacked.
- A great mix of luck and strategy. You do need to plan carefully and it's mostly about strategy, but there is enough luck there that you don't feel bad about losing.
The first 5 minutes the rules made my eyes cross a little - but the rulebook is actually written very well with good illustrations and the first game went smoothly and was fun.Read more ›
