Steer a burgeoning nation through the age of Imperialism (1830-1900), and build it into an empire. Deploy explorers to search for resources and persuade the natives to join your empire. Create and train armies — complete with infantry, cavalry, artillery, and generals — and send them against those foolish enough to oppose you. Through turn-based, strategic play, players can choose to work together with neighboring states, or battle against rivals for control of key regions. Economics play an important role in building the empire, too, as players must be able to fund their country's continuing expansion. Cities can be improved with factories, railroads, ports, forts, and schools, to provide a solid infrastructure that can support the growth of the nation. Technological advancement and diplomacy will also offer key advantages to clever imperialists. ~ Damian Francis, All Game Guide
