About the Game

Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization is a new and updated edition of Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization (rel. 2006) – this re-edition is now rated the third best strategy board game of all time on boardgamegeek.com and is highly regarded throughout the board game community.

Through the Ages gained popularity with players thanks to a closely aligned micromanagement mechanism with a theme.

Reviews (digital base game)

  • It’s one of the best board game apps I’ve ever played. Maybe THE best, and is the only one I can think of where playing the AI is just as much fun as playing against other people.
    - David Neumann from iOS Board Games News
  • Through the Ages has the most entertaining tutorial yet seen in mobile gaming.
    Through the Ages helped rejuvenate me with the pure, fierce joy of play that only very best titles can deliver.
    - Matt Thrower from Pocket Tactics
  • I cannot recommend the Through the Ages App enough. This is a great game and being able to play it alone in about an hour makes this app worth the price.
    - Jason Crognale from Play Board Games
  • Yep. It’s Through The Ages on iOS, and they nailed it. It is deserving of a permanent place on the boardgame screen of your device.
    - Tom Slayton from MobileTechReview
  • CGE have done a great job with this implementation. Through the Ages is a heavy game and they really have done an amazing job of simplifying it and creating an elegant app.
    - Katie Aidley from Katie’s Game Corner
