Seven Wonders Game review.

I just spent my weekend playing Antoine Bauza’s Seven Wonders Game. I was a bit skeptical at first because most of my gaming experience is war game based whether it be commanding an entire division in A world at War or a single Sherman tank in Advanced Squad Leader. Within the first hour I was hooked. It’s a fast paced fun family friendly game that can turn any game night into a blast for everyone from the occasional gamer to the hardened veteran.

The game itself is beautifully designed from the alluring box to the flawlessly made game components.

On the surface Seven Wonders looks like a board game but actually it is a card game. The cards are beautifully designed, easy to understand and pleasing to the eye and to touch. In essence you use the cards to create the best city possible as you travel through three ages. There are no complex interactions like in magic or Pokémon so anyone can pick up this game in one or 2 playthroughs. I think this is one of the best games I have ever played. Its rules are easy to comprehend but strategy evolves over time and no 2 games are exactly the same. To get that kind of review from an old cardboard tank driver like me shows how great this game is.

  1. Looks very attractive on the outside. It also seems to have a complex game feel to it considering the fact that you have to build a city. There are probably a lot of details involved. I know this sounds unrelated, but I used to play a lot of sim games, and I love building stuff, so this game sounds it would be my thing. I also like the fact that it’s extremely easy to learn, because I always thought that pokemon card game was an easy game to learn. If this game is easier than that, then it must be very easy to pickup. I will give it a try and see how it goes. How many players are limited per game? Is it two players or four players?

    • hi thanks for responding. You can play with three to seven people. It really is a blast!

      Got my butt kicked all weekend again. The rules are pretty easy but the strategies are endless! Thanks again and best of luck
