"Fast-paced and quick game"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Unlike many games available, 7 Wonders is quick and is playable within 20 mins. You are also impacted by the person on either side of you, but less (if at all) impacted by the person opposite you, so a great game if you have 4+ people to play.

Ample ways to win, so tactics can vary.

Reccommended if you have a small amount of time to fill in between other games!

"Deceptively simple"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game has a deceptively simple gameplay that allows for some complex strategies (even more complex with the expansion). The best thing about it is that it takes 30 minutes or so to play, meaning you can often use it to fill in time between other activities easily. I've written a full review of it in my blog (and it's expansion) here: http://wp.me/pXLGE-1V

"Wonderful Game"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game is easy to pick up; taught 6 others to play for the first time last week and had very little problems. The first game might take a little longer than the 30 minutes to play; the short game time means we can play it while waiting for others to show up for the longer games.

Description

You are the leader of one of the 7 great cities of the Ancient World. Gather resources, develop commercial routes, and affirm your military supremacy. Build your city and erect an architectural wonder which will transcend future times.

7 Wonders lasts three ages. In each age, players receive seven cards from a particular deck, choose one of those cards, then pass the remainder to an adjacent player. Players reveal their cards simultaneously, paying resources if needed or collecting resources or interacting with other players in various ways. (Players have individual boards with special powers on which to organize their cards, and the boards are double-sided). Each player then chooses another card from the deck they were passed, and the process repeats until players have six cards in play from that age. After three ages, the game ends.

In essence, 7 Wonders is a card development game. Some cards have immediate effects, while others provide bonuses or upgrades later in the game. Some cards provide discounts on future purchases. Some provide military strength to overpower your neighbors and others give nothing but victory points. Each card is played immediately after being drafted, so you'll know which cards your neighbor is receiving and how his choices might affect what you've already built up. Cards are passed left-right-left over the three ages, so you need to keep an eye on the neighbors in both directions.

Though the box of earlier editions is listed as being for 3–7 players, there is an official 2-player variant included in the instructions.
