Basically -- you purchase cards with your pitiful 12 coins -- spend wisely -- there is no way to get more! also -- choose carefully -- don't let your partner get all the cards that give vp at the end.
with cards , you can either place armies, move your armies or build a town. Each card has it's own ability. some give you additional victory points at the end.. those are the ones to consider carefully when purchasing -- either for your own VP or to keep the other player from getting VP.
all in all - a fun little game. not hard to learn. there are some tutorials out there on you tube. Best advice -- Watch how you spend your cash!
The first game took about a half-hour since there was 2 of us that didn't know how to play. Afterwards the game plays a lot quicker.
The mechanics were amazing. I love the dual use for the cards. Basically as you draft a card you get an immediate effect followed by a completely different constant effect in later turns.
There is very little I would change about the game itself. One thing that would help out though would be to give the cards subtypes. For example, certain cards will award victory points based on say how many "dark," cards you possess at the end. "Dark," is mentioned in the title of the card followed by additional names. This made it a little confusing, but not bad by any means. I wish there was a second line indicating the type was dark.
Easy to grok rules, small box for travel, colorful components, enough strategy to offer meaningful choices and a modular board with variable setups means you'll never see the same game twice.
Plays quick - you'll be done with your first game in 30 minutes. When everyone has been through at least one session that's down to 15 minutes.
Finally, the use of 4 modular maps (with backs and fronts) means there are many more configurations to play.
The only caveat to both this and the original is that they are not really "8 minute" games. Expect 15-20 minutes or even 30 minutes for new players. Hardly a problem, but I've yet to play a game in under 10 minutes.
Our first play was about 40 minutes - learning to play and getting the hang of it. By our 3rd game we played through in 15 minutes, were planning ahead more, scoring more points, and finishing pretty close to a tie score.
The game comes with enough variants so it won't get stale too quickly for you.
It reminds me of Risk, but way quicker, so you don't hate each other after spending hours trying to win.

Zur Box lässt sich noch sagen: inzwischen haben wir auch die Lost Lands- Erweiterung und das Material beider Boxen lässt sich auf eine reduzieren (wir haben die Lost Lands-Box genommen, weil deren Cover so wuuunderschön ist!)
Nach einigen Runden in verschiedenen SPielerkonstellationen (2 und 4 bisher) können wir auch sagen: Es ist tatsächlich ein sehr schönes Spiel! Und dabei ist es auch einfach gut, dass es nicht nur 8 Minuten dauert! ;)
Ich mag sowohl den Auswahlmechanismus der Karten (möchte man Karten, die weiter hinten in der Auslage liegen, muss man gutes, sehr wertvolles Gold dafür bezahlen), als auch die ganz tolle Gestaltung der Karten (Ryan Laukat ist ein toller Illustrator!) und die Mischung aus Kartendecks sammeln (passende Kartendecks bringen unter Umständen Siegpunkte) und dem Ausbreiten auf der Weltkarte.
Ich persönlich habe in anderen Spielen schon festgestellt, dass ich nicht so der Freund von Mehrheitenspielen bin. Dieses Spiel verbindet dieses Mehrheitenspiel aber mit so tollen anderen Möglichkeiten, dass ich es einfach total lieben muss!
Ebenfalls sehr schön finde ich, dass die Siegpunkte immer ganz nah beieinander liegen. Es gibt zum Schluss meist eine Überraschung, wer nun wirklich gewonnen hat, weil es sich während des Spiels nicht wirklich sagen lässt.
Fazit: Ich kann Acht- Minuten-Imperium Legenden nur empfehlen und ich möchte es auch in unserer Sammlung nicht mehr missen. Nur wenig Spiele schaffen es schon allein durch ihre Optik solch ein Charaktergefühl aufzubauen, so dass man es wirklich einfach LIEBEN MUSS. Hinzu kommt ein schnelles, kurzweiliges Spielvergnügen.
The Original is already a class of its own, but the Legends do top that, some nice surprise
