Description

Do not let the plain brown box fool you.  Innovation is a very dynamic game.  The game is comprised of 105 unique cards.  Technology begins with the basic Prehistory Age 1 and advances to the Information Age 10.  Each card depicts power icons and dogma actions.  Dogma actions are unique on each card and can help players advance up the ages or demand action of the other players.

On each turn, players must weigh the advantage of each dogma they have in play and which players will be able to take advantage of it.  As the game progresses through the leaps in technology, the dogma actions become more powerful.  Throughout the game cards can be scored by dogma actions.

Victory is gained by acquisition of Achievements.  There are 2 groups of Achievements.  One group is obtained by using scored cards.  The other is a group of unique Achievements that can be claimed bu meeting a higher level of criteria.
