#65: History of the World

Another old school favorite, History of the World has been republished twice - first by Avalon Hill (in a wargamer friendly version) and more recently by Hasbro/Avalon Hill, in a bit-happy version with cleaner gameplay. The attraction here is the sweep of history unfolding as your hordes run over the previous civilizations in attempts to conquer their corner of the world. It's a long game - but well worth the time investment.

Mark Jackson: "I'm not usually a fan of long-ish games, but the most recent version of History of the World lands right in my sweet spot. I don't even win that often but I have a grand time playing the game."

Truly amazing. This IS exactly one game better than Elfenland.
