Dark Ages is a historically-based civilization-building game that features an innovative action selection mechanism. As long as your action markers remain on the board, you may be able to gain secondary bonus actions whenever you or another player repeat the action.

The solo mode for Dark Ages has been designed by Dávid Turczi.

Interesting mechanisms and look of the game.
Curios how the Panoramas will interact with the characters at the end of the game.
