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.

5 7 Wonders play crib (core game plus the Cities, Leaders and Wonder Pack expansions)
This is a simple play crib for the core 7 Wonders set, plus the Cities, Leaders and Wonder Pack expansions. Version 1.3. The idea was to put all of the essential elements into a clean, simple-to-use reference, to make it easy for new players to get into the game and more experienced players to quickly find the information they're after. For the sake of keeping the crib compact, some generalisations have been made, for example, where similar concepts are employed the symbols have been placed together. Colour use has been kept to a minimum to keep the file size down, and to save on ink/toner. The crib is designed to be printed out back-to-back on A4 paper, I don't know how it would fair when resized to Imperial. I recommend printing even quantity sets; so for two sets you...
