See what’s inside the magnificent box of the new, revised (nay, Monumental) edition of Clash of Cultures, the critically acclaimed board game designed by Christian Marcussen (Merchants & Marauders) and published by WizKids! I don’t know if I’ve ever been so excited for the release of a new game. I’ve read the rules thrice in anticipation of receiving the copy I pre-ordered from my friendly local game store, and now that I got my copy, I just had to unbox and punch it. Look for more coverage once I get it played, which I hope is very soon!
From boardgamegeek.com: Clash of Cultures: Monumental Edition brings back the classic game of exploration, expansion, and development with the Clash of Cultures base game and the Civilizations and Aztecs expansion in one box! Grow your civilization, advance your culture and tech, and leave your mark by building wonders, with this edition of the game including fully sculpted miniatures of the Seven Wonders.
In Clash of Cultures, each player leads a civilization from a single settlement to a mighty empire. Players must explore their surroundings, build large cities, research advances and conquer those who stand in the way. The game features a modular board for players to explore, 48 distinct advances, seven mighty wonders, and loads of miniatures and cards. The winner will create a culture that will be remembered and admired for millennia.
