Game History

The board game Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization (2015), is the new edition of Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization (2006), ranked #2 of all board games on Board Game Geek.

Through the Ages is a civilization building game of the name by Vlaada Chvatil. Each of up to four players attempt to build the best civilization through careful resource management, discovering new technologies, electing the right leaders, building wonders and maintaining a strong military. Weakness in any area can be exploited by your opponents. The game takes place throughout the ages beginning in the age of antiquity and ending in the modern age.

Thematic Outline

This is your chance to make history:
You begin with a small tribe and the will to build a great civilization. Expand your farms and mines to gain the resources to build your cities. This lays the groundwork for technological advancements, better governments, and great wonders. Choose wise leaders whose legacy will lead your people to greatness. Strengthen your army to protect your borders and to expand your territory. And shape history with your political skill.

A strong economy, advanced technology, happy citizens, enlightened government, a strong military - your civilization needs to do well in many areas. You may excel in some, but you should not fall behind in others. Adjust your strategy to the opportunities the game offers. Your rivals will seek advantages through wars and politics, so keep your defenses up. But don’t neglect the finer things in life, because the civilization with the most influential culture wins.
