Play as an ancient civilization as they prosper and fall through time. Build gigantic monuments, raise impenetrable fortifications, and amass broad knowledge as the ages pass. The greatest civilizations will leave a mark long after their collapse. From times long ago to times recently lost, civilizations will rise and fall as the tide of time carries on.
Tides of Time is a drafting game for 2 players. Each game has three rounds where players draft cards from their hands to build their kingdom. Each card is one of five suits and also has a scoring goal. After all cards have been drafted for the round, players add their points based on the suits of cards they collected and the scoring objectives on each card, then they note their score. Each round, players select one card to leave in their kingdom as a "relic of the past" to assist them in later rounds. After three rounds, the player with the most flourishing kingdom wins.
