Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization is the new edition of Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization, with many changes small and large to the game's cards over its three ages.

Through the Ages is a civilization building game. Each player attempts 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.

One of the primary mechanisms in TTA is card drafting. Technologies, wonders, and leaders come into play and become easier to draft the longer they are in play. In order to use a technology you will need enough science to discover it, enough food to create a population to man it and enough resources (ore) to build the building to use it. While balancing the resources needed to advance your technology you also need to build a military. Military is built in the same way as civilian buildings. Players that have a weak military will be preyed upon by other players. There is no map in the game so you cannot lose territory, but players with higher military will steal resources, science, kill leaders, take population or culture. It is very difficult to win with a large military, but it is very easy to lose because of a weak one.

Victory is achieved by the player whose nation has the most culture at the end of the modern age.


Warning : the game should contains a handbook. But the printing of the hanbook will be delayed to November. It will be send at this moment.

    Génial, très grande profondeur de jeu, très tactique, peu de place à la chance.

    Excellent jeu de civilisation, pour l'instant seulement testé à 2 joueurs, une configuration qui fonctionne très bien. La partie dure environ 2h, une fois que l'on connait bien les règles. Il faudra d'abord passer par une lecture assidue des règles, mais cela en vaut vraiment la peine. Les joueurs qui aiment passer des heures autour d'une table seront comblés! Beaucoup de stratégies sont à tester et l'adaptation sera très importante, car chaque partie est complètement différente. Le hasard est présent dans l'arrivée des cartes, mais celui-ci ne gêne en rien la progression du jeu et les esprits calculateurs pourront toujours garder un certain contrôle. Un Grand Jeu!!

    Its a long game. But is very good. Can be fiddly too. I do recommend.

    Masterpiece. One of the best game I've ever played. It has strategy, theme, interaction, lots of cards for replay value. I haven't got a chance to play the original version of the game, but I wanted for a long time. Now I'm glad I did not, because this is an improved version of the game in every aspect. Only downside is downtime, since every player has many actions during a turn. Also, long play time can be considered a downside - average 3 player game for us lasts around 4.5 to 5 hours - but when you have time to invest, that time invested is an upside to the game because of a very rewarding experience.

    One of the best (if not the best) civilization-building games out there. Lots of fun!
