In this episode of The Long View, I'm pleased to be joined by long time listener N/A as we examine his favorite game, Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization. Along the way we discuss the things that make this such an innovative design, the barriers to learning the game, and the effectiveness of this design as an epic, civilization experience. Is it the best? How does it compare to games like Nations, or the original Advanced Civilization? Tune in to this episode and find out!

As a bonus, Jeroen and I take a look back at the year 1993 in boardgaming, and a look forward to the recent release Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Rise of the Runelords – Base Set. Is this finally THE game for old time RPG'ers? Tune in and find out!
