I'm confused by the different rules/videos on line, some suggest this goes up to 5 players and others 6.

Are there different editions available? Do I need to be careful which one I buy?

Historia is for 6 players. AFAIK there is no 5 player edition.

According to here and here it is for 1 to 5 players. But according to this site and here it is for 1 to 6.

Hence my confusion.

The rules from bgames are obsolete - there were a few changes in final version of the rules and 6th player was one of them.

Simon,

Aradraug is right. I've owned Historia since the successful Kickstarter and have played a number of 6-player games (Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Purple, and Gray). It's a great civ-building game which plays faster and is far less tedious than Through the Ages. If you want the more tactile experience, I recommend Nations.

Cheers,
Joe
