The idea was simple; play 5 games in one evening (which to me meant 5 hours maximum) and determine an overall winner. I wanted 5 top games, all with different mechanics, different themes. The games are in chronological order, to a degree telling the story of human civilization.

Add all 5 scores, the player with the highest total wins. (two games, Settlers and Puerto Rico, have a multiplier to their scores).



If you have a different idea for a 5-hour multiplayer penthatlon, please let me know.

THE game, ca 1.600 AD. 90 minutes.

multiply score with 2 (by virtue of beeing the 'meatiest', least random game)
