Aggravating people worldwide since 1964
Looking for a game to play with my teens about the exploration/colonial era of american history. Looking at Frances Drake or Enpires Age of Discovery...or Colonial Europes Empires Overseas.
Which is best game, which is most hostorical? Thanks!
I like all 3 of these, but if you're looking to be immersed in history I'm not sure these are the games you're looking for. I love the way you program your actions sequentially (and simultaneously) in Colonial: Europe's Empires Overseas. The board is beautiful (but maybe not as functional as it should be due to the tiny lettering on the map). Several years ago, it was probably in my top 5 or 10 games but I haven't played it in awhile.
Empires Age of Discovery looks great on the table and is fun and pretty easy to learn and teach.
I like Francis Drake for it's two distinct parts to each round: 1) gather your resources to prepare to go to sea; 2) go to sea and do some swashbuckling.
