First impression: Great drafting game with short playing time and wonderful grafics. Hope to play it alot in the near future.

Second impression: After 8 Plays it pleases me still. Eager to play again and again! Clearly on it's way to a modern classic!

A CIV game for 7 players that is playable in 30 minutes!
Even with multiple expansions, it could easily be played under 60 minutes. And so simple that even non-gamers can participate! Great fun!

Идеальная игра про развитие цивилизации. Быстро и логично. При этом есть и место стратегии и умеренная доля везения. Отдельно хочется отметить масштабируемость. Игра 2010.

Pros:
- quick playing time allows me to get in games easily.
- cards are nice and colorful. It looks pretty on the table and gets the attention of folks passing by.
- I enjoy the draft-and-pass mechanic to construct your play field.
- scales well for almost any number of players.

Cons:
- the cards are a little flimsy and wear. Can be eliminated by sleeving - but I hate sleeving
- some of the backs of the cards (age 3) are slightly a different color than others. Doesn't bother me much, and again can be eliminated by sleeving, but does bother some.

7/20/13 updating to a ten. This is a great game my whole family enjoys. We recently added the cities expansion which helped round out things nicely. Also constructed the fan expansion lost wonders, which is fantastic.

Another interesting card game which is unlike any other at this time. I find it interesting that you interact with people only adjacent to you, yet you are trying to get the best score of all the players.

None of the games have lasted over 20 minutes. Graphics are nice and colorful. It feels like a well thought out and tested game.

Another game that lends itself to expansions, I am sure.

Although I have read that some feel it has similarities to Dominion or Race for the Galaxy, I don't agree. Yes, they are all card games, and you are building something, and the most victory pts. wins the game, but the mechanics on all 3 games are so different. I own all 3, love all 3, and could play all 3 back to back and not feel redundant.

Fast paced and hugely rewarding game, in which the game develops extremely quickly. If you aren't watching your near neighbours closely and other opponents at all then the game can evolve without enough time to combat others, or remove critical choices from them. The choices are endless and there are many paths to collect points to win the game. I love card games and this one is really engaging, the cards are so well put together with all the reference required in symbols.
Can't wait for expansions and for this title to true rank along and fully compete with Dominion as my favourite game that I own.

Favourite: Drafting

My favourite drafting game. Players choose amongst cards for resources, set collection, trade bonuses, military focus, or cultural buildings. Three hands of cards and the game is over, making it a welcome addition to any game night. It can be difficult to explain the iconography to new players, but once it clicks, everyone seems to enjoy this. Cities and Leaders expansions add some specific strategies that players might otherwise not choose to adopt, which is welcomed. For a game that has short play time as a selling point, it always seems like I want it to last a bit longer.

30-60m, best with 3-5. 20+ plays.

Magic meets Civilization: if Dominion was similar to T2/Standard mechanics, 7 Wonders is a draft-like enticing game.With 7 players supported, it's really a wonderful game.

Bam! Easy 10. Scales perfectly well from 3 - 7. It really does only take 30 minutes and there is plenty of strategy.

How is this game not #1? It's easy to teach, fast to play, engaging for all skill levels --even us hardcore mega-gamers, and more versatile than anything out there. Best with 3, 4, 5, 6, or even 7! I should stop buying other games and just play this more. Heck, Wifey even likes it!! Shoot, based on that I may need to adjust everything else down a notch.

I'm sure this is a game that will improve once we know the various cards and chains. UPGRADE. I like playing 7W quite a bit, but teaching it is a real bastard. UPGRADE. This could be the perfect game. Fast, fun, strategic, tactical, luck, free will, and smack talk. And short enough to play over and over.

I love that it scales well for 2-7 players. There just aren't many games that you can play with more than 5 players. This fills a nice niche in the game collection.

I also really like shorter time length (30-45 min). Now with a baby crawling around, we can still get a couple games in after she has gone to bed.

Okay, there's a learning curve here. For an experienced gamer, though, it's only about one game. After the first game I knew everything I had to know and started to work on trying different strategies. It was around that second play that I really fell in love with it. Gorgeous game that plays really, really well. I can't believe such an involved game can play seven people in 30 minutes, but it can. This is one of the best games of the year, no doubt. *Update* - 13 plays later and it's made my 10 list. Absolutely love it.

One of our favourite fillers, especially as it scales so well from 3 right up to 7 (I don't like the 2 player variant). A great drafting game, that has really interesting decisions throughout, and has huge amounts of replayability.

Love this game. Have now taught it about 5 times. Just short in complexity to be a 9 now - though elegance may get it there soon.

Advanced to a 10 (August 14th, 2013). This has become a favorite of my family. We spent a lot of money at Staples to get fairly professional looking sets of the Lost Wonders and we love the Cities expansion. Play at least two times every time I visit them.

I like 7 Wonders a lot. It plays fast with up to 7 players. While I can try to choose a strategy, I have to adapt to the cards I'm seeing. I think it is important to watch well beyond my two neighbors to understand what cards have been built so that I don't continue to look for them.

Acquired December 2010

October 2011 - Our family group has really enjoyed this game during the past year. It has quickly become one of my favorite games, and I expect we will play it for many years to come. The fact that it plays in a short time frame, with up to seven players, makes this ideal for us. It is an outstanding design, and must have been extensively play-tested before publication.

November 2012 -- This is still an amazing game, to me. I would enjoy playing it more often, because I tend to forget the best tactics between game times. Maybe we will get it out more this coming year.

2013-November: I have enjoyed this game every time I've played, although I have seldom won it. It's just a great game.

Believe the hype - this is a great game that plays fast, offers a lot of agonizing decisions, and rewards smart play. It a good second-step game for those friends/family of yours that have tried a few light/gateway games and are ready for something a little tougher but still has enough meat to keep a veteran gamer happy.

[ESP] Excelente juego en el que hay que escoger las cartas indicadas para que tu ciudad prospere. Debes encontrar el justo balance entre recursos, habilidades, PV y defensa militar. Sin embargo no es tan sencillo ya que la mano de cartas pasa al jugador del lado cada vez y nunca estarás seguro de cuales opciones tendrás para tu siguiente turno.
Lo mejor es que es un juego rapidito que puede ser jugado hasta con 7 jugadores en el mismo tiempo que llevaría una partida de 2.

I got this when there was all the buzz for it when it came out. Our group likes it. It is simple and fast. I don't bring it all the time as it could get boring after a while though. The different paths to victory lend to experimentation, although two rules of thumb should always prevail: Don't let anyone hog military or science bonuses.

After few play this game seems to be very good in any number of suggested players. And there aren't many games for 7 player of such quality. And the short gameplay time is a big advantage, too.

After number of game sessions where this game has been an enormous success I must raise the rating to 10. This game is truly addictive, replayable and so much fun.

After 2 years spent with 7 Wonders I must say, that there is no other game, that hits the table that often. After so many games, there is not the "wow" factor or the feeling of freshness anymore, but still the game is very addictive even after such a long time (and the Cities expansion made a huge step forward to replayability, because it adds some variety and randomness (in the good meaning) to the base game.

Protections cartes : MG Large Sleeves 65*100 et Ultra Pro 65*100

Avis personnel : un super jeu avec sa technique de draft. Il demande aux joueurs d'être très tactiques et de faire de bons choix au bons moments.
Le jeu se renouvelle très bien et a une durée de vie très longue même uniquement avec la boîte de base.
Attention, il ne convient pas à un public débutant et demande une certaine expérience quant à l'explication des règles.
