Description:

Formally known as Age of Empire III. This is a gamer's game. This classic game has it all, from worker placement, to unique benefits derived from capital buildings, to resource management, to area control. AOE is almost split down the middle with the two strategies players may employ. You can try to score points from having a well oiled economy in the form of set collection or you can try to take over regions and score points at the end of every age. Be careful, though, with the latter path, because AOE also has some warfare and players can thwart your efforts. This version of AOE is the latest updated version of the game and improves the base game in most regards. This game is tagged as a middle to heavy weight game and it will definitely make you think. Usually the winner is the one who specializes well in a variety of areas.
