I playes 7 ages yesterday and we had a strange situation that gave me the folowing question:

when 1 empire is in age two and that empire has to move back to age 1 can other players still play age 2 empires or not?

The situation:

One of the empires went to place 8 of the progress track. He thus went frome age 1 to age 2. This allowed all players to play age 2 empires. I was the first player. I started the Hun empire (i think it was the Hun, the empire with attilla). They get an extra manouvre and when they conquer a city the empire that loses that city goes back one space on the progress track (and the hun score 2 GP if they forced an empire to an earlier age). This was exactly what i managed to do to the only player who was (just) in age 2. Hence after my start empire fase there were no empires in age 2.

(i actualy combined this with an extra manouvre. thus in the first manouvre i took the city and in the second spread out to get the most area's in the world GP)

Well the humanity enter a dark age and go back to Age 1 until another empire get up to Age 2... I fear the people starting their empires after yours are gonna kill you dead really hard.

No. The age currently occupied by the most advanced empire on the track determines what new empires can be played. You'll have to wait a turn to play that age 2 empire!

Notice this can go the other way.
If the most advanced empire is in space 28, and somebody starts Venetians, age 5 has begun instantly and the next player can start Marathas (age 5+).
(and this would be a clever move, since Venetians would get 20 gold for producing units)
