Description

7 Wonders is a game where players must build a strategy around one of the 7 Wonders of the world. Each wonder has a unique set of resources and abilities associated with it. Players compete through three Ages to accumulate the most victory points through careful selection of cards as the hands are passed from player to player. Each of the three Ages has a unique set of cards. Players must pay careful attention to their opponents at their left and right. Both resources and points can be gained through those opponents. Multiple strategies can lead to victory: specialize in structures, wage war or neglect your military, produce goods in abundance or rely on commerce... Scoring takes place at the end of the third (final) Age. Each player tallies up their victory points accumulated from point cards, commercial buildings, guilds, and military superiority.
