7 Wonders: Cities (2nd edition)

£23.95

7 Wonders: Cities (second edition), the second expansion for 7 Wonders, includes optional team rules, adds an 8th player (the base game supports up to 7 players), a new type of card (black, representing the remains of cities), and new cards of old types (two new wonders: Petras and Byzantium, 3 new guild and 6 new leader cards). This expansion is more aggressive, with greatly increased interaction between players, who are still trying to score more points than anyone else.

The new black cards have a variety of effects, with nine cards being available in each age. Effects include:

  • The active player gaining gold, with his neighbours also gaining a bit.
  • Increased military strength in age 1 at a greater cost.
  • Embassy cards that remove you from the military competition for that age.
  • Cemetery cards that earn you points at the end of the game while costing opponents gold.
  • Spy cards that copy symbols from green (science) cards.
  • A secret warehouse that doubles a resource and a black market that generates a missing resource.
  • The ability to build cards for free by copying building chains from other players.
Note that the 6 new leader cards can only be played with 7 Wonders: Leaders.
