Reminder from: Dragonflight-MSG Yahoo Group Title: Advanced Civilization Date: Saturday June 28, 2014 Time: 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm (GMT-08.00) Pacific Time (US & Canada) Location: Metro Seattle Gamers Notes: Advanced Civilization is a game of skill for 2 to 7 players. It covers the development of ancient civilizations from the invention of agriculture c. 8000 B.C. to the emergence of Rome around the middle of the third century B.C. Each player leads a nation of peoples over a map board of the Eastern Mediterranean and Near East as they attempt to carve a niche for themselves and their culture.
Although battles and territorial strategy are important, this is not a war game because it is not won by battle or conquest. Instead, the object of play is to gain a level of overall advancement involving cultural, economic, and political factors so that such conflicts that do arise are a result of rivalry and land shortage rather than a desire to eliminate other players.
