My brother who loves Civilization but hates the amount of time it takes to play the PC game. This makes a nice bridge, good civilization experince but takes less time to play then the computer version.
Can't get anyone to play such a long game
Tried to play this on a couple of occasions and the rules just stop the game dead in its tracks, so not rated yet. Managed a 3 player game which worked well and my interest got re-sparked. Now itching to try with both expansions.
It's not a bad game. The military and combat is very poorly implemented, in my opinion. If it wasn't for the military I would have kept this game.
