Game Schooler Recommendation
7 Wonders is a speedy card drafting game in which everyone plays simultaneously, meaning games are about the same length whether you have three or seven players. We like that. Although the symbology in the game can be a bit of a hurdle, the strategic and tactical thinking skills more than make up for it. On top of the healthy competition, 7 Wonders also introduces folks to world history and anthropology as players add to their civilization with each new card they select. With engaging decisions and satisfying scoring opportunities, this game is sure to hit the table again and again!
