I'm a big strategy board game fan - my all-time favorites are Puerto Rico, Carcassonne, Settlers of Catan and Diplomacy.

I purchased this game thought KickStarter and I brought this game in to play at work the other day. The eight-minute thing certainly caught my attention, as the typical strategy game we enjoy playing takes upwards of an hour or more.

Firstly, the rules are pretty unique and a blend of several other games I've played in the past. It's hard to pin down exactly what games this is similar to, as it's a nice mix of expansion and battling.

GAMEPLAY
I'd say it took us about 20 minutes to fully parse the rules and start playing. Once play started, it was pretty easy and all 4 players got into it. It definitely seems to be one of those games you need to play a few times to really hone in on a strategy. It did take us about an hour to learn and play, but the mechanics are simple enough that I think we'd be able to get it down to 15 minutes or so. There are special rules for 2 or 3 players, and we didn't try them yet, but there were many special expansions available for more advanced play.

OVERALL
I would highly recommend this game to fans of strategy games - in fact, it's light weight enough (like Carcassonne) for people who don't usually play strategy games to enjoy.

The changes in Legends definitely improve on the original. In particular, moving across the sea now costs more movement points, but is not restricted to special cards. There are also many more bonuses on the cards making their selection even more tricky.

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.

Eight-Minute Empire: Legends – 2-4 Players, Ages 13+, Average Play Time = 8-20 Minutes

First, let’s briefly recap what’s new. The boards are modular, allowing you to switch up the aesthetics and configuration every time you play. Instead of containing goods that are counted as VP at the end of the game, cards now of abilities that have long-term effects. While some cards encourage players to collect sets of a particular type, there’s more variety here. In “Eight-Minute Empire”, you tried to collect as much of a good as you could to score more points. “Eight-Minute Empire: Legends”, just to name one example, features a card ability that awards players VP for the coins they have left in their possession. If it’s regions you’re after, you can forgo the VP abilities and go straight for the ones that allow you to “fly” or place extra armies by default. Oh, and the art on this title is most certainly an improvement!

I won’t go too in-depth here because I’ve already done so in my review of “Eight-Minute Empire”, but I will say that I enjoyed this title just as much (if not more) than its predecessor. Again, this is a stand-alone product, so you won’t need to own “Eight-Minute Empire” in order to play this. With that said, you could use the maps from “Eight-Minute Empire” if you so desired. As a whole, “Eight-Minute Empire” is simpler and makes a better gateway game to the series, I feel, with “Eight-Minute Empire: Legends” taking it slightly to the next level. Both are easy to teach and are relatively quick to play, so you honestly can’t go wrong with either of the two games. My only complaint is that “Eight-Minute Empire: Legends” only supports four players as opposed to “Eight-Minute Empire’s” five, which may be a deal-breaker to larger families…still, it’s relatively fun to play regardless.

As good as a filler game gets.

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.

I bought this game after having heard good things about its predecessor.

Although the rules are very simple, it is an extremely fun area-control game. Because players need to consider both the duration powers and the one-time actions found on cards, each player's turn usually takes more than 30 seconds. When playing with 3-4 players, this means that the game will likely last about 20 to 25 minutes. While this makes the title a bit deceptive, I find the game length to be perfect.

The lack of text on most cards also makes it easy to introduce this game to people who don't speak much English.

My wife and I like playing games together, but to keep her interested it has to be a relatively quick play-through and not too competitive. This game is perfect for us. You strategically play along and tally your points at the end. The limit on the number of turns is great and it has the perfect amount of strategic planning to keep each players turn short.
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.
