Through the ages... Long term hit on boarsgamegeek... My friend had this for almost 10 years, played twice, never finished - always ran out of time.
We started Saturday at 12 - not our usual time ;) With us having to learn the rules, eat some waffles (yum) and a friend having to leave at 5:30 pm - we only managed like a third of the game....
Uff. So long.
It's not SUPER complicated, and it was fun so far, but it'll surely not be a fav for me. We will try again next week though! #boardgames
We did it! We completed a full game!
It only took us 7:45h
Through the Ages was enjoyable, but since the dynamics don't change a lot through the game, it should be a whole lot shorter. We accomplished this one play through and that was enough for everyone involved ;)
Lots of reviews said that once you're behind, it's almost impossible to catch up and we have to agree with that. I won and the last 2-3h, it was pretty clear I would and there was not much they could do.
@Virelai the four player game is LONG. Especially with the Full Game rules. I love the game. However I do think the iOS implementation of it is better than the board game. Removing all the fiddle bits really helps the game play.
