There should be a Word Games Subdomain, or at least a Word Games Forum!

A pretty accurate description. You might think this is a long game, but when you consider how long the *actual* history of the world took, this game seems amazingly short.

previously 34th

Another game that shouldn't have been on my list at all. I just don't really know the game well enough to fairly rate it. Another one that may show back up if I really do learn the game right and like it as much as I think that I would.

I have the original Ragnar bros version which I would never give up because I have the famous tea towel map! I think the gameplay in the AH version was better but this is another one where I've sort of taken the best of both worlds as I then bought A Brief History of the World when it came out. I'm not sure if it's got enough changes to be classed as a separate game though so I probably did fork out for an upgrade here.

I have the original cloth map version of this game and, although I think AH improved the game with their version, there is certainly a level of charm playing this game on that original map. I also have the revised A Brief History of the World which further refines the system and I like both games. Again, similarly to Britannia, this appeals to me with the ebb and flow of world history. I think it plays better with higher numbers as it makes the board tighter and more competitive. The game is also one where you really want to enter the final turn not as the leader but close enough behind that you get to pick a decent empire for that final big points-scoring turn. There are flaws here but as a game it has really stood the test of time and remains eminently playable. A gateway civ game.

Haven't played this probably since TGD II or TGD III.

Any takers? Would be looking at getting this in probably early on Friday.

83. History of the World

Fancy Risk on crack! The game is simple but a bit long. I love that each era have their own civilization with specific strenghts. Trying to manage your civilizations to not overlap to maximize your points is also something that hits a sweet spot for me. It also works well with 3 players where we simulate a 6 players game by controlling 2 players each and scoring the lowest of the two at the end.

4 players in this one. Interesting game of area control with lots of figures on the map. There are seven ages with drafting for choice of civilization that you will control for that round. This game will definitely benefit from multiple plays as knowing where civs can pop up will influence your choice of keeping or passing a civ off to someone else. The draft of cards that can be played has a luck aspect it seems but more plays would probably negate what seemed for some cards to be a definite advantage. The cards that drop a minor civ out seemed pretty solid but experience I think would overcome their seeming advantage.
Rating after 1 st play 7
Play again? Yes more plays would strengthen choices made
Would I buy? No I think this one is better at 4 or more so home play chance would be slim.
