Vlog Ep. 38: Through the Ages Board Game Discussion


Because we've been enjoying these different board game deep dive episodes, tonight's #BaduyPride live stream vlog was all about the complex strategy game Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization created by Vlaada Chv├ítil and published by Czech Games Edition. This remains to be one of our favorite translations of the Civilization-style 4X game into a tabletop experience, which is quite a big challenge. And we spend the episode talking about the many ways they did this in such an unusual and ultimately brilliant way. 

This episode was prompted by the arrival of our copy of the expansion New Leaders and Wonders this week after it took a lengthy trip from the US to get here. Leaders and Wonders are certainly cards that have a lot of impact on the game and how players end up developing their civilizations to make the most of the special abilities and I'm excited to what they've added to mix things up.

While we chose today's topic, we're always open to suggestions! If you have ideas for future video discussions, feel free to fill out this Google Form and your idea may be featured as the focus for an episode!
