I like games which span a lot of time, yet keep you constantly involved. This is such a game. The adequate selection of cards drive much of the game without having to get buried in a lot of rules. There are always tough decisions required
One of the best games ever. Kind of a melding of History of the World and Axis & Allies, with simple mechanics to keep the game flowing. You can play a nice long game or a short one, depending on where you decide to start in history.
