Product Description:

This intriguing game is designed around several unique factors. First of all, each player begins with a different board featuring one of the Seven Ancient Wonders the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Great Pyramid of Giza, etc. The boards share similar features although each one maintains its own distinctive characteristics. On each board are coins, points, 2-3 benefits, as well as one resource it produces. There are three rounds in the game, referred to as ages. Each age has its own deck of cards, and at the beginning of an age players are dealt seven cards. They pick a card to play and then pass the remaining cards to their neighbor, strategically choosing cards from each hand that will benefit them the most. There are seven different types of cards, including resource cards, which are needed to buy most of the other cards; point cards, which give no benefit other than victory points; military cards, which each player assembles to "fight" against their neighbors for additional points; and guild cards, which appear only in the last age and are generally worth a lot of points. In the first age, the cards are cheap to buy and players will build up their resources and lay the foundation for the game. By the third age the cards are fairly expensive and it's crucial to make the best decisions regarding which cards you build, and which ones you allow to be passed on to your neighbors! At the end of the third age, players tally their points in each category and add them together to reveal who got the most victory points to win the game. With a lot of variation between games due to the differing boards, randomness of the card decks, broad variety of strategies that can win the game, and even the difference made by the strategy of whoever you happen to be sitting by, this one offers a lot of re-playability. 2-7 players. *Please note that some of the illustrated cards such as the Baths and the Temple do portray partial nudity; you may wish to alter these cards prior to play.

fun with a word of caution
We bought this game for my son (14 years old) for Christmas. We have really enjoyed this game. It involves strategy but it is not so involved that it is overwhelming. That's what I like about it because some strategy games are too much for me and take too long to play. This game also does not take a long time to play; it moves quickly. I would say that it takes about 20-30 minutes for a basic game.

A word of caution, though: There were three cards that we felt were immodest and we altered them so that we could use them. Getting rid of them would affect game play.
