7 Wonders In the board game - 2010/2011 season garnered awards and was elected to a record level in many countries in the rankings or even the best game of the year. In Germany, taught the game to young price "Kenner Game of the Year 2011".
With successful games have expansions and additions to wait usually is not long in coming and so is the "Leaders", the first expansion to the monumental game of cards appeared. 7 Wonders of core leaders, 36 leaders - cards that bring additional benefits to its owner. Players are thus by their leaders more money, more influence, more victory points or more military force. Here are some leaders act immediately on the game, however, others appear only at the end game.
7 Wonders if the extension is played Leaders, two additional phases of the game are needed. In a one-time leader conducted Draft-phase four leaders will be distributed to the players. After the usual distribution system, each player chooses one card and is the leader in on to his other neighbors. Finally, all players have four more or less elected leaders in their pool.
The second phase takes place before each new era. Each player may now play a leader, if he can pay the respective costs. The ability of the leader has an immediate effect until the end of the game and may assist the player in his moves or his game strategy. So the player can buy cheaper, for example, a neighbor, receives more resources or more options or if he has additional victory points - options it can consider when choosing to play off the cards.
Who does not have the wherewithal available to the leader directly to bring into play, according to the principle is still the possibility to play the leader hidden in his monument, or to sell it for cash. Because more money in circulation is added with the expansion coins with a value of 6, which did not exist before. A small monetary reform also.
"Rome - Colosseum" the leaders of the next game, new guilds and the new monument, plaque, are enabling the recruitment of leaders discounted settled. Two of the guilds are directly related to the possession of leaders, while the other two guilds have become more important now reward the possession of money and guild cards. The guild of courtesans courtesans bring a small - with tile, which can be set to a leader of the neighbors in order to use his skills as well.
7 Wonders Leaders fits in perfectly with the base game and does not extend the already moderate playing time significantly. However, the complexity increases, because the players have more strategy options and have to think in more detail. The material of the extension is similar to the basic game is graphically treated excellent, but has little unstable cards that are different but not with respect to the ink of our basic game. We recommend that all 7 Wonders fans to create the extension because it enhances the game effectively. It fits easily into the game box for the base game, so that the separate box is not needed for storage.
