Elegant 2 player

Elegant 2 player game my partner and I have had hours of fun with. Easy to learn but with multiple different wonders and ways to win each game feels a little different. A good amount of player interaction with the simple war mechanic and drafting from a joint pool of cards. On top of all this it plays in about 45 minutes!

Beautiful and challenging

I have always been a fan of historical strategy games on the PC and this is great at capturing the essence of those games without taking hours to set up, learn and play. It's also a great 2 player game which is an added bonus.

There are many ways to win which keeps you guessing and thinking about not only your own tactics but what your opponent might do next turn.

All of the 7 Wonders experience in a slick 2-player format

Heard a lot of good things about Duel, and as both me and my partner are big fans of the original 7 Wonders, we decided to give this a go. It's excellent! The solitaire style card layouts keeps the concepts of the original's hand-passing mechanics while adapting to 2-players, and the new military track is a really nice visual way of presenting that side of the battle. For the money, it's a must-buy for 2 player gamers.

Excellent 2-Player Game

2 player strategy game that offers great replayability. Got this as a birthday present during lockdown and we have played this over and over already, with each game different to the last. Easy set up. Rules are a little difficult to get your head around the first time, as with most new games, but then easy moving forward. Box is compact (probs about 7" x 7"), making it easy to pack if travelling, and everything has it's own slot inside which I like aesthetically.

A great game and definitely one I would recommend.

OVERVIEW

In many ways 7 Wonders: Duel resembles its parent game 7 Wonders as over three ages players acquire cards that provide resources or advance their military or scientific development in order to develop a civilization and complete wonders.

What's different about 7 Wonders: Duel is that, as the title suggests, the game is solely for two players, with the players not drafting card simultaneously from hands of cards, but from a display of face-down and face-up cards arranged at the start of a round. A player can take a card only if it's not covered by any others, so timing comes into play as well as bonus moves that allow you to take a second card immediately. As in the original game, each card that you acquire can be built, discarded for three coins, or used to construct a wonder.

Each player starts with four wonder cards, and the construction of a wonder provides its owner with a special ability. Only seven wonders can be built, though, so one player will end up short.

Players can purchase resources at any time from the bank, or they can gain cards during the game that provide them with resources for future building; as you acquire resources, the cost for those particular resources increases for your opponent, representing your dominance in this area.

A player can win 7 Wonders: Duel in one of three ways. Each time that you acquire a military card, you advance the military marker toward your opponent's capital, giving you a bonus at certain positions. If you reach the opponent's capital, you win the game immediately. Similarly, if you acquire any six of seven different scientific symbols, you achieve scientific dominance and win immediately. If neither of these situations occurs, then the player with the most points at the end of the game wins.
