Is it possible to improve a classic? 

The card drafting game 7 Wonders stormed onto the scene in 2010 to overwhelming critical and commercial success. Players build toward one of the great wonders of the ancient world over three ages, scoring points for each area they develop: science, culture, military, commerce. It strikes an amazing balance between strategy, accessibility and speed of play. And best of all, it can accommodate up to 7 players.

Enter 7 Wonders: Duel. Same concept but designed solely for 2 players. The team of noted French designers Antoine Bauza and Bruno Cathala provide players with an experience that feels similar to the original yet filled with its own unique challenges and strategies. This is no cheap knock off or imitation. This is a game that can stand the test of time, just like it's cousin. Tune in to see why we think it deserves the very first... Spiel of Approval!
