7 Wonders (Second Edition)

(4 customer reviews)


Rome wasn’t built in a day, but you can build an ancient civilisation in just half an hour in the brilliant 7 Wonders!


Make the right decisions to lead your civilization to prosperity!

Lead one of the seven greatest cities of Antiquity. Develop your civilization on a military, scientific, cultural, and economic level. Once built, will your Wonder bring you glory for millennia to come? No downtime, renewed fun in each game and perfect balance regardless of the number of players.

Every turn, you will have a chance to choose one card to further your goals for ascendancy. Will you gather resources and bide your time, or strike fast and grab what you can? Decide wisely, because when you finish, you’ll pass the rest of your cards to the next player, who may profit from your indecision. As the ages advance, you’ll choose from progressively more magnificent developments, so prepare your civilization for tomorrow or be left choking on the dust of your failing nation.

Resource management, military might, and deck drafting all come to the fore in the justifiably popular 7 Wonders.

    I love 7 Wonders… Have spent many a night frustrating my opponents, building a kingdom, and kicking some butt when it comes to technology or wonder-building.

    Light strategy, nice and quick, and very satisfying.

    Not very quick and easy to comprehend, had to watch a youtube video on it.

    BUT very enjoyable, with a quick game time.

    To be honest, I bought this game because of all the awards plastered on the side of it’s box. It sat on my shelf for a good six months before I could be bothered reading the instructions. Lots of words… But now that we know how to play, 7 Wonders is easily one our family’s favourite games. This game is a card drafting game with lots of cards with lots of symbols. So much so, that the rules/cheatsheet to decipher said symbols are always in rotation around the table during play (we are forgetful). We didn’t get all the rules right the first time, or the second time, or even the third time but luckily game turnover is a quick 20 or so minutes and by the fourth game we were on a roll. Because there are a number of game boards, there is usually a new angle you can try when starting a new game so, heaps of replay and opportunities for different strategies. Yay! We usually play in a group of 3 to 5 players. 3 is ok, 4 is better, and 5 is better+ (imo). Looking forward to a game of 7. 7! Although in saying that, you can only have any solid interaction with the person on your left-hand side and right-hand side. So for players who aren’t directly on your sides, there is no real and compelling reason to stink-eye them, which is unfortunate. One thing that would be nice is knowing who is winning while you’re playing. Throughout the game you might have strong suspicions over who is winning, but you can’t confirm that until the points are tallied at the end of the game. Otherwise, 7 Wonders has a lot going for it. It’s not too heavy, with enough strategy and tension to keep you engrossed til the end. 7 Wonders is currently on our favs list and will probably stay there for a long time. Highly recommended.

    Didn’t get grabbed by it at first but the many strategy choices become more apparent as you get to know the game better. I usually play a solo game as three players, and now I’m totally addicted. Keeps getting better.

    If you find this game a bit light at first, stick with it it gets better and better. Highly recommend.
