In Bronze you will be taken back in time 5000 years, when ancient societies had yet to become civilizations and hairy mammoths roamed the land. As a powerful ruler, you will lead your people across the globe from snowy mountains to sun-beaten deserts and seashores. Your people will make great discoveries, learning to use the wheel, create pottery, and forge the first bronze tools. Your progress will depend on establishing trade routes and exchanging knowledge with the citizens of great cities like Babylon, Troy, and Mycenae. You'll have to contend with other mighty civilizations, as you all battle to be the first to enter the Iron Age!
The game is played on a modular board featuring spots for settlements of three different types - Farmers, Herders, and Hunters - in seven different landscapes. Players establish their settlements on these spots by using Technology Cards. Each card allows a player to build a settlement of a specific type on a specific terrain. By achieving a majority in Land Tiles, building continuous chains of settlements, and entering new lands, the players gain Province Tokens, Trade Route Tokens, and City Cards that give them victory points at the end of the game.
