And it really takes about 30 minutes to play. Turns are quick so there is not much waiting between turns. I cannot get family to play long games but THEY LOVE THIS ONE. The game fits perfectly into the small box so it is easy to take to the coffee shop for a quick game. It is great fun throwing those custom dice and IT IS NOT ANOTHER YATZY.
Some folks fear that it uses a pad of paper to track your civilization, but there are TONS OF SHEETS on the pad and the company website allows you access to the PDF file if you ever need to print more. If 30 minutes is too short then the company website has a 60 minute variation (a new civilization tracking sheet for the late bronze age) available for downloading.
Great value for money.
The game comes with an assortment of quality components well packed into a compact and portable box. They include: 4 Pegboard; 24 Pegs (4 in each of six different colours); 7 Dice; 1 Pad of Score Sheets; 2 Reference Sheets; and 1 Rule Book. The pegboard includes tracks for managing different goods: Wood, Stone, Pottery, Cloth, and Spearheads. There's also a Food track at the bottom, which you'll use to keep track of food production - you'll need this to feed your Cities. Speaking of cities - these are represented in the game by large wooden dice, which are heat stamped with icons representing food, workers, resources, coins, and disasters.
You roll the dice Yahtzee style to determine what you can do on your turn. After re-rolling your dice, you'll use your score sheet to write down how many goods or food you've produced, technologies you've invented, monuments you've built, or disasters that have happened. You can use workers to build more cities or point-scoring monuments, you can use coins and resources to develop new technologies (e.g. getting the Agriculture technology costs 15 coins, but gets you extra food each time you roll the food icon, and 3 points at the end of the game), and you use food to feed your people. At the end of the game, points are earned from technologies and monuments, while disasters that have occurred during the course of the game will cause points to be subtracted from your score.

Some may say that it has more luck than strategy, but that's because it's a dice game.
But it's also kind of like Yahtzee - you roll dice and decide which you want to keep and which you want to roll again. So yes, you have the luck of the roll - but there is a lot more involved in this game than Yahtzee. We explain many of the differences on our game review site TheBoardGameFamily.
What makes the game so fun is determining what resources you need to build the developments you want. Do you need more food, or do you want more workers, or do you need some cloth and stone? How many cities do you want to build? You can roll more dice when you have more cities, but you'll also have to generate more food to feed those cities. It's a fun balance of planning and luck.
This is a dice game, and I have no problems with that. The re-rolls put the die results "in your hands" a little bit more (no pun intended). I like the choices it forces you to take and the mechanics with the skulls, disasters, and developments; they come together providing some interesting options.
My problem with this game is that there is just not enough "umph" here. If I had four people I would rather play perudo, catan, epedimic, puerto rico, power grid, etc. What I'm saying is I don't think this will be making it into my game rotations. I have game day at my house 2-3 times a month, and with the people that show up and all the other options out there I would never pick to play this with company.
As a family game however I would say it is probably a 4 or 5 star game. And I can easily see playing this with a 10 year old. My wife and I play it as a two player game and in that respect it is not bad.
Do I recommend this? That is a tough call, honestly it depends what your game collection looks like, and if you are a younger guy enjoying strategic game nights, or something simple to play with your family. In those cases I would say no and yes respectively. I didn't really like Agricola that much, and I would consider this down that alley. I would venture to say that if you liked that you will probably enjoy this more than I did.
