Guide your tribe in its struggles to survive and prosper! Tribes: Early Civilization is a game for 2-4 players experiencing the Paleolithic, Neolithic and Bronze ages in 40 minutes. Players start with a small tribe and the very basics of civilization. During the game, they invent new technologies, explore new land, fend off invaders, and survive catastrophes. The tribe that first emerges as a true civilization wins!
Tribes: Early Civilization is a thematic prequel to Nations, designed by one of the Nations designers. It is a fast 3X game with a twist as each player has their own separate area to explore, expand, and exploit while the rest of the game are highly interactive
There are three basic actions tied to your civilization levels: explore, move and grow. An actions column stores all the action tiles available to a player and determines the cost for a player to use it. It's also where historical events come into play and where the fourth civilization level ? strength ? is used to gain you bonuses and make bad things happen to your opponents.
Several interlocking systems ensure high replayability without adding overhead or upkeep.
