115) Eight-Minute Empire

This was a great little game packed into a little box. After setting up the board the game play is quite straight forward. On your turn you purchase an available card, do the action listed on the bottom, and then add the card to your collection of cards. The goal of the game is to have the most points. You score points in two ways: On the map you get points for controlling different areas and regions and with the cards you collected you get points based on how many like symbols (listed on the top of the card) you have. The actions on the cards allow you to add pieces and move pieces around on the board.

Is this really going to take only 8 minutes? -no-
Initial set-up -check-
Set collection for maximum points
The end of our game
This game was great and the two of us playing came away really wanting to play again. It's so simple and yet so strategic. There's so much going on and so much to consider. The area control and set collection both play into the game really well. All around solid game that I highly recommend.
