This is one of my all time favorite games. I love the theme, love the Ameritrashy pieces, love that you sort of start over every turn. I know it's flawed, but it is an awful lot of fun. That said, I've gotten to play it all of 3 or 4 times in 7-8 years? It really needs the maximum player count to be best, and it takes forever to play, though. It's really hard to get 6 players together to play a probably 4-6 hour game.

I love this game, and my kids are actually old enough now I can play it against them. So it was the first time for them and they enjoyed it very much. Boys (and their dad) and toy soldiers...

Last played: June 2015

And finally...$1.99 at GW. Missing only the dice! It was a good week of thrifting. Broke my personal rule of going off on my own on Sunday to thrift...but oh the goods that were found.

I found more, but haven't audited the finds to see if they are complete. Maybe I will list more if time permits.

1993 Avalon Hill edition. The bits are in good condition and the box isn't bad for its age. Some shelf ware and dishing.

I've had this game in my collection for ages (pun not intended) but it is really hard to get this to the table. I think it requires at least 5 players to be fun and then I am guessing this won't be easy to wrap up in a single evening.

However, I really felt like playing this, so I decided to cook up some solo rules. Mainly I made a ranking of the empires, then some small algorithm for what the bots would decide when getting an empire card.

I also did not give the bots any Event cards, instead a random die roll based on the current age would give them either extra units or forts.

I experimented with fixed rules for army placement as well, but that was just less fun and instead I played the bots to the best of my ability.

It was great fun!


The world at the end of the game.

In the end I won, so probably this needs a little tweaking. Also I cheated a little. In Age III the Empire not being placed would be the Romans. Of course I couldn't let this happen and I played the Romans instead of the Celts whistle

Also, I made a major rules error where for the whole game I attacked with just a single die instead of two.. I will definitely revisit this soon and with the proper rules. I will also add my solo rules to the files section and post a link here if anybody is interested.

Last but not least was this game. Spent the night inventorying and found it was missing just one preeminence marker. Other than that it looks like it was never played. Cards look new. $2.99 from salvation army.

1993 AH edition. We just recently played this with my little sister who never got a chance to play it with us growing up because of the age gap. I think it's a really ingenious in how it includes thousands of years of history in a single game.

This has a reimplementation as well, shorter and apparently less well received, which is shocking considering the reviews: I have lots of complaints but nevertheless think it's a great game.

I'll go ahead and add its reimplementation here as well, as it doesn't seem it will get a revision or reprint (or so they say here).
