I was disappointed with that game honestly, it really feels like a gamers game so it falls a bit flat with other people and the rules are confusing

If you can place an order - it has rejected me several times.

Well, uh, yeah. Not really a game for first time gamers... at all.

Great game, though. I only sold mine because it didn't make it to the table.

CSI includes free shipping with that price so there really is only a 4.00 difference

I'm not sure I understand this comment. MM also does free shipping for larger orders. And since they do a hold system, it makes it even easier to bundle things up into big orders.

The comment is that if you just wanted to buy the game and nothing else then it's only a $4 difference as CSI provides free shipping on that game without adding other games to the order.

Oh. I didn't realize that CSI offered free shipping on orders with select items. Has that always been something they've done?

I just checked after SilverBulletKY's reply. It looks CSI has a special offer just for Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization that makes shipping on the order free. First time seeing that for me.

Oh I see. Either way too heavy/long for me. According to BGG at least a 2-4 hour game whistle

Love the game, but haven't tried the new version, what are the big (non graphical) differences from the first one? Worth picking up if you have the older version?

Check out this YouTube video from CGE, the producer of the game, for a good comparison video of the 2 versions. Not only did the art receive an upgrade, but there are a few rules changes and cards were tweaked if they were deemed to be too powerful or too weak.

Hope that helps!

Learning game with 4 when the teacher was experienced took almost 8 hours. Good times, but yeah, long.

7.5 hours for me. Obviously includes getting food. We took our time as well, so it can be done quicker. I think 1.5 hours per player is a legit estimate. Digital version out this week. CGE has great resources for the game on their site. Easily a Top 5 game for me.

Amazing price. It was $60+ when CSI had an exclusive on it. Every board gamer should at least give this a try, if only to behold the innovative mechanics and clean presentation. Every aspect is very refined. The rulebook is a marvel of clarity, and a joy to read. My few plays with my adult daughter have been a blast. We leave it set up, playing an hour at a time, spread over a couple of days. I'm keeping this game forever, right next to Twilight Struggle.
