I'm pleased to report that with Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization, my quest is virtually over. It's not a perfect holy grail of civilization games, because any game that plays in under 4 hours has to sacrifice something. Through the Ages lacks a map, and arguably the down time can become an issue when played with four players. But as far as medium weight civilization games go, Through the Ages is stunningly good, and perhaps the very best.
The game is primarily driven by cards, but there are player boards and tokens, because you'll need to be managing a variety of things in your civilization, including population, food, building resources, science, strength, culture, happiness, and government. On your turn you take actions to slowly build up your civilization by inventing new technologies, building new buildings, producing building materials, all the while making sure that you have enough to feed your people and keep them happy. There's also significant player interaction, and not only are you competing with other players to have the most advanced civilization in terms of cultural development, scientific progress, or military strength, but you can even use your military to attack your opponent - although the cost of doing this can be high!
Through the Ages certainly meets most of the criteria I'm looking for a civilization type game: strong historical flavour and theme, economic and military elements, civilization technology, playable in 4 hours or less, a solid game without being overly complex, and decent components. Now excuse me, while I go and build myself a civilization! - EndersGame @ BGG

This game is overly complex. With many games, (such as Terra Mystic, Carcasonne, etc.), the complexity is as much as is necessary to make the game enjoyable. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Corey H.
This game was soooo overly complicated it took all the fun out of it for me. So many tiny little things and points to keep track of held me confused the entire time. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
Really fun, complex game. Almost impossible to follow the instructions if you are all new players, though. Get clarification on the boardgamegeek (or whatever his name is) website.Published 5 months ago by Sanon
