Why It's On The List
  • A civilization-building game that packs in the game mechanics: deckbuilding, resource management, tableau building, asymmetric factions, multiple game timers, keywords to differentiate similar actions… and each individual civilization has a uniquely structured deck. 
Tips & Tricks:
  • Know what's in the deck you're playing... they do NOT work the same way and tactics can be very different.
  • Don't forget about Innovate (dropping your hand to get a card you want from the market)... sometimes, it's the best thing you can do.
  • It will take a few plays, but watching what other players are doing is key to winning.
  • I'm on the fence about buying the 3D-printed bits from MeepleSource - but they look really nice..
  • Here's the review I wrote about Imperium Classics/Legends for the Opinionated Gamers website. (I've played the game nine more times since I wrote that review.)
  • It is a brilliant solo system - so it's the twelfth of 18 solo games I recommend on the countdown.
  • This is the second of two games on my list by designer Dávid Turczi.

I _just_ got the MeepleSource upgrade. I kept mixing up the 3s and 5s with the tokens from the box. I haven't played with them yet.
