7 Wonders (2010)

The best game I played at GenCon 2010, and from the hype and the description, I was actually expecting to be lukewarm at best about it. Very solid drafting mechanics, very quick play, accommodates a larger than average number of players, and asymmetrical starting boards.

A rule of thumb as you look down the list of comments: in virtually every comment that says it is "random" "chaotic" "luck driven" or "low interaction", you should replace those statements with "this person doesn't know how to draft".

slightly "more useful" cards than average in this mix, compared to the original, based on our group's usage.

it does exactly what it's supposed to do, which is help kids with colors (even though it's more of an "activity" than a "game", in the technical sense). i'm tempted to give it a 10 for the deluxe version

I read the rules and thought "meh".

2 years later, I played the game, and was very pleasantly surprised!

This game seems like a good pick for both gamers and non-gamers.

Yup, it's Ra. If you already own Ra, you probably don't need to spend the money to get this. If you don't own Ra, I'd buy this version.

It is more visually appealing than Ra, and you're making slightly more worthwhile choices, and the scoring system is better; however they aren't grand sweepingly awesome changes, they are only mild tweaks. they also make teaching the game a teensy bit harder, and they make the playtime a teensy bit longer.

a quick-playing adventure game... you get to build up a party, level them up, fight monsters, and get treasure... but probably not in the way you'd expect.

Solid, DM-less dungeon crawling with character progression. Other dungeon crawls are still trying to achieve what this one already has.
