Age of Mythology is a decent game and the very first strategy boardgame I got my wife to play. There's some neat things going on but amassing an army and using it have never won me a game. A solid building strategy does win games. Maybe it was poor development/playtesting but why put all those plastic soldiers and monsters in the box if it's primarily a building game?

An epic fail

This game had me excited, I thought about pitting the different ancient civilizations in an epic match, to only find a mediocre game that tries to put some uninspired mechanics before the awesome theme.

Now imagine if the civilizations acted differently, had different strenghts not only fighting but also building and stuff, but yeah then shit happened and this game is a mess of mechanics that seem had no playtesting done as there are whole sections of the game that are worthless, like the armies.

It's a mediocre game at best, so please don't pick it up or you'll treat yourself to a dissapointment.

There is too much down time, and the battles are dull and time consuming. Other than that, the game is OK.
