Eight-Minute Empire is an awesome board and brain game by Ryan Laukat. It is a super-quick area control game requiring tough decisions. It’s easy to learn and perfect for when you only have a few minutes. Build an empire in around eight minutes.
2-5 players take turns selecting a card from the six displayed. This card gives the player a resource, and also has an action which the player takes immediately. Actions help players take over the map, but the resources are worth points at the end of the game, so players have to balance the two aspects. Players spread across the map in order to collect points at the end of the game by having majority control in regions and continents.
Recruit troops to strengthen your army. Command your forces to acquire new provinces. Challenge your friends all over the world. Eliminate enemy troops to weaken your adversaries. There are over 70 achievements in the game. If you get stuck in the game, check out the video walkthrough and gameplay for the game.
