Age of Renaissance
Players attempt to build up their cultures during the Middle Ages and Renaissance period. The game features a card deck that holds events, payout cards and famous leaders of the particular eras. Although all cards will turn up somewhere during the game, the timing and position in which they will be played is crucial and will ensure a different game every time.
The main goal of each city-state is to gain points in the form of technical advances while keeping their cultures misery level as low as possible. The payout structure is similar to those of Civ and Advanced Civ in that more resources of the same type yield increasingly higher payouts. This time particular payouts are triggered by card play for every player at once. An ingenious and very smooth working “combat” system is implemented to determine province – and thus resource - control.
