Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization immerses you in an epic domain building experience. Long term planning allows you to see your civilization grow from its beginnings into a mighty empire. It’s deep but worth the time commitment to learn.
CGE did a lot of fantastic updates with this new edition. It is much easier to learn and the quality of the bits and pieces is much more appealing! To me CGE created a winning combination of theme with the mechanics on this!
If you are looking for civ game. If you are looking for a good Euro-style civ game. Any of that, just this is the game! This is the one of the best games of all time. And you can't go wrong!
And you should get a copy, and you should play. Because Through the Ages is one of the few games good enough to play again and again, and to last you through the ages.
Streamlined complexity, balanced strategy, thematic, and intuitive are all words that help describe one of the best, if not the best civilization games of all-time.
The theme is brilliantly translated into gameplay and the careful balance you need to strike between resource and food production (and consumption) and developing science and culture on top of that really makes you weigh every action carefully.
Through the Ages is simply phenomenal. It’s a meaty game, filled with strategy and tactics.
