A card game adaptation of the dice game Roll through the ages, itself an adaptation of the more complex board game Through the ages.
This is still under construction and will need a lot of adaptation. Also play-testing to decide how many of each type of card there should be.
The goal of the game is to develop your civilization to score points. When the game ends, the player with the most points win. The points scored by a player are the sum of the points written on the Things they control, minus one point for every disaster they control. To keep track of disasters use coins, tokens, a paper and a pen, or whatever. The corner value of a card indicates how much points it is worth - except for Food cards, which are not worth any points.
There are three types of cards: Actions, Things and Resources. Actions and Things behave as in any Dvorak game. Resources cannot be played, but may be discarded to feed cities, to buy a development or to build a monument.
A player's turn consists in:
- Draw a card.
- Feed your cities by discarding food cards.
- For every unfed city, gain control of one disaster.
- Play an Action, a Thing, both, or none.
- Discard cards until you have no more than five cards.
Every Development has a cost. This cost can be paid by destroying Good cards or discarding Coin cards. Destroying N Good cards of a type is the equivalent of discarding N^2 Coins?
