7 Wonders Description

7 Wonders

Draft cards to develop your ancient civilization and build its Wonder of the World. 


You are a leader of one of the seven greatest cities in Antiquity. Develop your city by increasing your scientific discoveries, military conquests, commercial agreements, and prestigious structures to lead your civilization to glory! All the while, keep an eye on your neighbors’ progress since they share similar ambitions. Will your wonder transcend the millennia to come?

--description from the publisher

7 Wonders: Leaders

Recruit leaders to further your civilization in this expansion to 7 Wonders. 


In the heart of your city, exceptional men and women inspire your people and bring your civilization to its golden age.

Choose them carefully and they will bring you greatness. Neglect them and they will end up leading rival cities!

In addition to two brand new Wonders, this expansion introduces a new type of card: Leader cards. Queens, astronomers, philosophers, and generals bring an extra dimension of strategy to your games. 

The expansion comes with a new Wonder—the ancient city of Rome—and contains 6-gold tokens made of cardboard for more efficient money-management.
