NSKN Ponders the History of Civilization (Board Games)

July 24, 2015 - 8:04am
golden ages Those who follow the official blog over at NSKN Games already know that they've posted a great article analyzing the history of civilization-building board games, from Francis Tresham (Advanced Civilization) right up to Antoine Bauza (7 Wonders).
Innovating in civilization games is no easy task, as it’s very easy to misplace those precious few elements that make a civ game what it is: the sense of building something grand, and the feeling of great progression, of one thing evolving from another.
The article also drops some pretty oblique hints at a new project in the offing at NSKN, "completely different" in its design from their previous offering, Progress: Evolution of Technology. Let's look forward to seeing how well it rises to the challenge of innovation.
