Product Description

Product Description

The Master Clocksmith came to speak to me this morning revealing a fabulous secret... Wecan travel in time, my friend! Not just dreaming about it like my astrologist does, but actually going there. I can hardly believe it! There seem to be periods in our future where the strength of our walls will be nothing compared to the strength of our collective faith. Or an even stranger future epoch where the people will rule themselves. The Master Clocksmith has convinced me that our power is now limitless. Our lands and domains are ours forever. My opponents will not wait and my Lords have already started preparing for their journeys. My dear friend, come with me, for from this day forward, I will be remembered as the king who forged our own destiny... literally!Players control time travelers who move forward and backward in time to create the future (and the past) as they want it to be (or have been). Changes ripple forward in time as players try to control the important aspects of each age - which, of course, change as time passes.The player who best manages his time-traveling resources will find he has created the flow of time as he wished and will win the game, as well.

Khronos is a fun game that you'll likely never be able to play as much as you'd like because the rules tend to be a bit intimidating and complex to explain. Due to a number of limitations on building and the layers introduced by having 3 time periods which influence each other, the game can take 10-25 minutes to teach to new players, who will often begin their first game rather overwhelmed. However, like most good strategy board games, by the end of the first few turns the strategies begin to emerge and everyone tends to understand the rules intuitively. Even novice board gamers can quickly catch on once the game starts rolling and the game scales well for anywhere between 3 and 5 players.

In short, if you have a group who doesn't mind sitting down and investing the time to understand a multilayered game, then Khronos will be a very rewarding purchase. The game also calls for different strategies based on turn order, so you can mix things up just by shuffling seats and playing again. Personally, I am always on the lookout for new people willing to learn this great game.

Verified Purchase
This game received wonderful accolades - which is why we purchased it, however, trying ot figure out the directions was maddening. It's as if the "directions" were never panel-tested.
We have yet to play it!!
Very disappointing.
