Revisit the Age of Discovery!
Take on the role of a colonial power seeking fame, glory, and riches in the new world. As you proceed through three centuries, you will launch expeditions of discovery, colonize regions, expand your merchant fleet, and develop your economy. As the competition heats up, you will recruit specialists (Merchant, Soldier, Captain, and Missionary) to help you gain an edge over your opponents, declare wars, and build capital buildings that give your nation unique advantages.

|A great game with fantastic components and a beautiful game board. This game is just plain fun. This game combines set collection, worker placement, and area influence to create a winner of an exploration game. What are you waiting for? It's time you discovered Age of Empires III.
|If you like the computer game, you'll like this. A great empire game for 2-5 players. A must have!
|I am not a war-gamer at all. Thankfully, this game is much more of a worker-placement/area-control game than a war-game.
The way that you have to balance your time and resources between the New World and developing your economy and lining up more workers for next turn keeps things tense and interesting throughout.
This is one of the best, big game to play with 4-6 players (with expansion) and it should be one that you check out if you like the theme or the style game.
