Founders of the Empire board game
Category: Board games
Imagine: the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, a few thousand of years before the Common Era. Rome is already founded, but people have no idea how successful the future of this city will be… Or won’t be? The fact is that there are hundreds of other cities in the shores of the Mediterranean Sea which could became the centers of the new great civilization. So, which of the ancient nations would be the Founders of the Empire?
Founders of the Empire is a family European style board game for 2-4 players. In this game every player is turn to be the leader of the small ancient nation. In the beginning of the game process each player receives a few territory tiles. By adding new lands to their holdings, developing trade and craft, attacking on land rivals and erecting temples players earn victory points. One more thing is that in the game process players will have a chance to use special tokens which will gave them some interesting possibilities and, of course, extra points!
Players should closely monitor the opponent’s development to make timely tactical decisions and foresee the consequences of possible moves. Also, participants are better to take care of the "geography" of their possessions because at the critical moment, the source of the desired resource could be cluttered with other things or in the worst situation could end up on the line of attack by enemy army. In addition, it is important not to miss the moment when the game is going to end: often the outcome of the game is being decided by one or two points earned in the last move before the finale.
The civilization that in the finale of the game will be the most advanced will have the right to be called the founders of the Empire.
