Description

Our 4-player game using the advanced rules took *eight* hours to play through, making it a game that you can't just whip out for a quick evenings bash. New map tiles, some very different from the base game and the first expansion, also including 2 new relics. Designed by legendary game inventor Francis Tresham in 1980, Civilization is the epic game that urges players to lead their nation to become the most powerful and advanced civilisation on the board! This usually resulted in "you trade me your iron and I'll give you 1/3 of the extra gold it'll give me" etc.

Clash of Cultures balances the accessibility and elegance of A New Dawn with the more traditional gameplay of original Sid Meier’s Civilization. Players may have up to two cities (three with a technology), which are built at the present location of any of their scout units, subject to building restrictions. One very confusing point here is that the rules are unclear as to whether if I trade away the resource from a city to another player, does the city still produce gold for me that turn as a resourced city?

This gave the first person a minor advantage early, but then since success builds so heavily on itself in this game, that person's advantage grew quickly. I have played enough games to realize that this is the aberration and not the norm, but it was still excruciatingly annoying.

In fact, you're allowed to trade anything for anything and it doesn't have to be fair, as long as both parties agree to the deal. Adds Persia, Sumer, Samita and Indus people and covers the areas of Persia, the westernmost parts of the Indian subcontinent and Arabia. Military Units - As previously stated, these can only be bought when the technology that allows them has been developed.

The manual also suggests actually swapping resource cards with other players, but since those cards are also your city cards it would get very confusing if you did so, so we just wrote trades down on a piece of paper.
