I sit down to share my review, as well as a bit of a how to play, of Imperium – Classics from Osprey Games. The game features eight asymmetrical historical empires vying to be number one. Is this ancient history themed deckbuilding game worthy of a place in your collection? Or should this design be exiled to the rubble of forgotten civilizations of the past? You’ll find out!

The gang and I have had a lot of fun with the asymmetrical play of each of the included empires and I really dig Imperium - Classics. The rules aren't the most clearly presented but once you have a grasp of what's going on, the game flows nicely. Each civilization will take a bit of a different strategy to put in place if you want to win. Imperium - Classics isn't going to be for everyone, especially those looking for a far more detailed empire building game, but I highly recommend the game for those with an interest in civilizations from the past who don't want to be bogged down in minutia.
