Well, it’s been a journey, hasn’t it? After many trials and tribulations and years of development, the award-winning board game 7 Wonders ($4.99) is finally on the App Store, and it looks very promising. Just to give you an idea of how long this game has been in development, we wrote a story about it looking for beta testers more than two years ago and then again about 4 months ago. But nevertheless, despite the game taking more time to come to the App Store than it took to build the pyramids, it is now here, and it looks really good. 7 Wonders has won a ton of awards (its publisher claims it has won the most awards in the world) and has a ton of fans around the world.
7 Wonders is a card-drafting game played using three decks of cards that feature commercial activity, ancient civilizations, and military conflicts. You get to construct scientific buildings, trade with neighbors, fight with your opponents at the end of each age, and, of course, build the 7 Wonders. The game comes with online multiplayer, which I’m glad to hear, and looks good on tablets (sorry, no iPhone version at the moment). I’m glad the game is finally available, and I hope it’s bug free after all this time in development.
