Description
Instead of usual rather realistic mix of diplomacy, trade, conquer and elimination, the game offers modern gameplay with wide array of options and strategies for the player. The goal is to develop your own civilization, not to destroy the other ones. The military strength is just one aspect of your nation, as well as population, production or science. It is up to you which one you will concentrate more or less, but you have not to underestimate any of them to build an efficiently working nation.

The game goes from the ancient ages to the modern time. There is only one measure of success at the end ? the amount of culture your nation produced during the entire game. However, there are many ways how to produce culture: through religion, literature or drama, by building wonders, by utilizing cultural persons etc. Considerable amount of culture can be gained even by wars or aggressions; note culture is not necessarily something positive here ? just something that influences the image of the world (thus even Fast food chains produce lots of cultural points). As in most games, where VPs are separated from economy, there is a classic game dilemma ? at which moment I should slow the development down and concentrate on the culture?
