Antike is a German empire-building/logistics game that plays in under two hours. (24:14)
Greetings! Welcome to Board Games with Scott, a weekly show where I take a board game, explains it, and briefly reviews it. This week, I’m going to look at Antike, which came out at the Essen game fair in 2005. Antike is an empire building game where each player builds up troops, which he/she uses to take over new pieces of land, build more cities, produce more goods, use some of those goods for research, and fights the other players. It’s got a few interesting elements and (usually) very fast turns, so downtime is minimal. The game rarely takes more than 2 hours, with most games I’ve played lasting under 90 minutes.
