I want to play 7 Wonders with 8 people but if each person is suppose to have 8 cards to start, there are not 64 cards available. How does set up with Cities work when playing with the full 8? Thanks

My game is at work, but IIRC, with 8 people, you deal 7 cards to each.

When playing with 8 starting hands only have 7 cards per age.

Cities includes more than enough extra cards for each age, at each player count. At eight players, I believe everyone just drafts one less card.

Rules for 8 players
The following rule changes allow you to play with 8 players.
Prepare the game for a 7-player game (all the Age I, II, and III from the basic game, 9 Guilds, and 7 black cards of each Age).
At the beginning of each Age, deal 7 cards to each player. Each player will play 6, exactly as in the 7 Wonders basic game.
Note : the 8-player game is mainly intended for the team play variant.

You said that 8 players is mainly intended for team play. Is the all-against-all option officially in the rules rather than just a variant that people play?

More to the point, are there any obstacles to, or problems caused by, doing 8 player all-against-all?

Thanks.

A good question. I have played it with 8 people without teamplay. It was fine, but perhaps there are some balance issues im not aware of.
