A clever hard copy of a popular computer game I spent many hours playing the computer version of this popular Civilization-style game. After a mad rush to populate an island capable of sustaining growth one builds a civilization in the usual resource-driven way. If you’ve played Civ in any of its incarnations or the popular city building games like Caesar III and SimCity then you already know what’s expected of you. Reducing that real-time experience to a turn-based board game took some doing but it seems to work. A similar scramble for an island and its resources leads to a clever game experience. You acquire resources and grow your island. Each game lasts about an hour or so. Its fun but the learning curve is moderately steep if you’ve never played anything like it. But if you like these kind of games you’ll like this one.Mike Birman
