I am 16 and have played this game now for 3 years. Now when you've played this game that long or any game for that matter you get to know the game inside and out. Now this game as i have played it has perfect balance between the countries (beside Spain and the Ottoman Empire) in which the game can be won.

Even after I have played the game for this long I even still have new strategies to play out. And I think that there are still a lot of possibilities as well as new strategies that we haven't tried as of yet. All and all this is a good game for beginner as it was for me. The rules are simple to start with and your strategies unfold to earn you a victory with just enough luck. But as a set of advice now matter how good you are with strategy if your friend can't roll lower than a 10 your not going to win.

Good for beginners, but I prefer to start...

... with the advance ruleset, the other I feel are untested, and seta the game to be a little prearrenged, that why i started with the advanced set, its a little dificult but much more rewarding than the other sets, This is only the 5th game i got so i dont think my opinion would worth to much to the hardcore gamers, but its mine...

This game is a amazing -- probably the best all-around game I've played. This is one of those games that you can't just play once.


-Tactical battles are actually that -- tactical. To win combat requires a healthy mixture of strategy, superiority, and luck. This is not the random dice toss of 'Risk'.

-Diplomacy actually means something, and alliances are actually useful. The Political Action Points of the game mean that alliances don't break down as easily as with 'Diplomacy'.

-The map is excellent. Historical accuracy meets playability in one happy marriage that I haven't seen since 'Diplomacy'.

-This game is amazingly fun. Everything just comes together to make it a great time. People may be scared off by the fact that the standard game will take several hours, but you will be so wrapped up in the gameplay that you won't even notice the time go by.

Though it pains me to admit this, there are some points I think don't work out too well.


-History is king in this game, at the expense of manueverability in gameplay. The scenarios are set up to duplicate what actually happened, but that means that your options are limited for what you can actually do.

-Spain, Prussia, Britain, and the Ottomans are too weak, and France and Russia are too powerful. I understand that this is how these nations actually were at the time, but this means that the game always ends up in either a French or a Russian win. The only hope the other nations have is to ally with the two superpowers and hope they can be ignored, which doesn't make the game too fun for them.

-Finally, the advanced rules are impossibly complicated. If you play with them, the battles end up being half-hour long ordeals as everyone scrambles through the rulebook to find out what to do.

Despite the cons, this game is one of the best put together 'empire' games I have ever seen. You will love this game. You will want to play itall the time. You will find it worth every penny you spend getting it.
