Heavy to play, nice idea with the mirror turn. Maybe too many decisions to make for non strategy gamers.. But may be the best civilization game out there..

If you like AOEIII or SoE, you definately will enjoy it..

Excellent game with a brilliant two-part turn mechanic which I've never seen before. Classic Wallace game play with loads of tough decisions every turn!

I'm really loving this. I've now played it a few times. And while it is a long one, I feel constantly engaged throughout the entire effort.

There is a ton of stuff here that is lifted directly from other games (namely El Grande) along with mechanics that we have all seen hundreds of times (drafting, worker placement, engine building), but the whole thing fits together so nicely and in a new way that it feels like a fun comfortable play. Plus you aren't going to see many of those things in a game with this much conflict.

That said the "B" side to every era is quite new and frankly, really rocks my world. The way it plays out makes for some really thought provoking decisions.

I should point out that Wallace really brought worker placement into being with Way Out West and still doesn't get credit for it, so I think it is just quite satisfactory that he has reinvented his own wheel.

This could make it to a ten rating with more plays.

More Accessible and quicker to play than Age of Empires but feels more Euro and lacks the alliance system that makes AoE so good.
However, tis will be much more likely to be played on a club night.

Otro gran juego de Martin Wallace, y van ya ... En fin, me encanta, es un Eurogame puro y duro, con tema de civilizaciones, pero que nadie espere un juego civilifláutico. Se juga por Eras, tres eras en concreto, y cada Era son dos turnos, turno A y B. Tienes seis acciones a elegir en cada turno A, mientras que en los turnos B no eliges acciones, ya que son un espejo del turno A, todo lo que hagas/selecciones en el turno A lo repetirás en el turno B. Mecánica genial alrededor de la que gira todo el juego, junto con, por supuesto, el mapa. Mayorías para puntuar el mapa, y también puntos de victoria a través de otros elementos del juego (ciudades y otras losetas). Varios tipos de recursos que manejar para conseguir tus objetivos (señores que irán al mapa o al mantenimiento de ciudades, recursos, comida y monedas). Es algo caótico como todo juego de mayorías, si todo el mundo te sacude no ganarás te pongas como te pongas, por lo que es conveniente no destacar demasiado pronto.

Uno de mis favoritos, un clásico instantáneo.

LONG. HEAVY. DIVERSE IN STRATEGIES.

If you can handle the 3 factors above then this is certainly for you.

It's really about choosing a path of terrain tiles + power tiles + some city tiles, while making sure to get a piece of the action on the main board; the latter of which is important to help garner timely resource markers and money and can also be a serious source of points.

The only negative is TIME. Our first game went four hours. I could see this getting down to 2.5-3 at best. I'm uncertain that it will see frequent play due this factor alone, but it certainly won't go untouched.

And the older you get, the fewer things you really love. And by the time you get to my age, maybe it's only one or two things. With me, I think it's one.

A/B action is very cool! Playing time was a little over 1 hr per player so make a day of it.

The replayability is probably a little limited compared to, say, Struggle of Empires.

I think it's best with 4 & second best with 5 players.

2p variant:

1. NW Africa and Anatolia grant only one, not two, population cubes.

2. When scoring map regions, the controlling player may pick between getting the rightmost number in VPs or the resources granted by that region. If the other player is present in that region, he gets whatever the controlling player did not choose. The leftmost number is ignored.

3. When Ideology and Religion tiles are flipped, immediately remove them from the game. They provide a nice boost to the last place player in 5-player games, but essentially hand the game to the 2nd-place player (i.e., the one who hasn't built any Cities or Wonders) in a 2-player game.
