From the Publisher...

Don't just make history-guide it! Take the reins of a developing civilization, choosing the resources and development paths that will lead to the fastest expansion, as you claim and defend territory on a map forging an empire that eventually encompasses whole continents.

Rise of Empires play is divided into three eras. Choices made early in the era are repeated late, so your decisions must have both short-term and long-term benefits to be successful. This process requires tough decision-making and promotes an atmosphere with nail-biting suspense. Victory points are rewarded for building cities, having an empire, for progress in science, and for trading goods.

Rise of Empires breathes new life into the civilization games genre! Balance gold and food, war and agriculture, territory and technology to forge an empire that is destined to rise above all other nations!

Each copy of Rise of Empires contains:
1 large game board
1 tiles display
40 resource discs
150 player cubes in 5 colors
45 action discs in 5 colors
8 empire tiles
40 territory tiles
48 progress tiles
36 city tiles
104 gold markers
5 alliance pieces
5 player aid cards
1 rules booklet with illustrated example of play

In Rise of Empires, players are competing to build the most succesfull empires. This gives a great feeling of achievement, whether you win or lose, since you are constantly growing and developing. The long time span of the game (from ancient history to now) is handled very well by using 3 eras - this keeps game length acceptable (2-3 hours) while still giving the epic feeling of progress over a very long period of time.
