Plenty of games have players building the most productive, mightiest empires -- but few do it with such deceptively simple rules mechanics and advanced planning as 7 Wonders. This card game from Asmodee Games has players working against each other (while often helping each other) to pursue several paths to victory.
I really enjoy playing 7 Wonders: It's easy to learn, teach, and play. It keeps everyone involved. There's no one path to victory. The artwork on the cards is beautiful. And you can play several times in a fairly short time.
Overall grade: A
