DESCRIPTION

Earning money with electric power? Earning lots of money with electric power? A very good idea!!!

Should I use coal or oil to generate power in the old-fashioned or will there be a shortage of those resources in the future? Will there be a future in burning garbage? Certainly nuclear power is very exciting and as long as the government will manage the nuclear waste there will be a lot of profit.

Of course, you can use more ecological friendly power and be independent of resources. But will such power plants be powerful enough for the customers in the future?

Naturally, you must watch your competitors to see what plants they build, which cities they have in their net, what resources they depend on, and what new power plants they find interesting.

A strategy game of planning with surges of energy.

7 Wonders
View
7 Wonders is a fast paced card game that 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, as in Fairy Tale or a Magic: the Gathering booster draft. 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.
