Description Edit | History

You are the leader of one of the 7 great cities of the Ancient World. Gather resources, develop commercial routes, and affirm your military supremacy. Build your city and erect an architectural wonder which will transcend future times.

7 Wonders lasts three ages. In each age, players receive seven cards from a particular deck, choose one of those cards, then pass the remainder to an adjacent player. Players reveal their cards simultaneously, paying resources if needed or collecting resources or interacting with other players in various ways. (Players have individual boards with special powers on which to organize their cards, and the boards are double-sided). Each player then chooses another card from the deck they were passed, and the process repeats until players have six cards in play from that age. After three ages, the game ends.

In essence, 7 Wonders is a card development game. Some cards have immediate effects, while others provide bonuses or upgrades later in the game. Some cards provide discounts on future purchases. Some provide military strength to overpower your neighbors and others give nothing but victory points. Each card is played immediately after being drafted, so you'll know which cards your neighbor is receiving and how his choices might affect what you've already built up. Cards are passed left-right-left over the three ages, so you need to keep an eye on the neighbors in both directions.

Though the box of earlier editions is listed as being for 3–7 players, there is an official 2-player variant included in the instructions.

Questions & answers with the designer Antoine Bauza:

Q) If in a given turn a player builds the Vineyard/Bazar, and at the same turn one of his neighbors builds a brown/gray structure due to the special effect of The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus (take a card from the discard pile and build it for free), he will get the 1/2 coins for the Vineyard/Bazar just built?

Antoine Bauza: Yes.

47 7 Wonders Full Player Aid (including Leaders, cities, Wonder Pack and the promos)
This Player Aid features a clean, hopefully very clear overview of all the game symbols, ordered by age and class. It includes the Leaders, Cities and Wonder Pack expansions, as well as the Catan and Leaders goodies (Esteban, Louie, Stevie)). By the way: two versions of the Manneken Pis wonder exist, I explain both. Hence the beer. Format: 28x28cm (the original booklet format). I recommend printing it on large scale paper and then laminate it. That's what I've done ;) There a version with the cutout strips if you want to cut it all the way nicely to the edges. All comments or corrections welcome! [update v1.1 : updates grammar mistakes]

13 7 Wonders Non-Basic Symbol Reference
V1. Has all non-basic symbols from Base, Leaders, Cities, Wonder Pack and Promos. Babel has it's own sheet, so not included. Lists them by card/wonder name and is colour coded. Sized to fit in Base box. Does not include symbols for Coins, Resources, Science, Shields and Victory Points as they should be known after rules explanation. Thanks to pdahl's reference sheet for some of the symbols. Rule/effect wording is my summary, so please let me know any corrections or suggestions, thanks.
