In many ways 7 Wonders: Duel resembles its parent game 7 Wonders as over three ages players acquire cards that provide resources or advance their military or scientific development in order to develop a civilization and complete wonders.
What’s different about 7 Wonders: Duel is that, as the title suggests, the game is solely for two players, with the players not drafting card simultaneously from hands of cards, but from a display of face-down and face-up cards arranged at the start of a round. A player can take a card only if it’s not covered by any others, so timing comes into play as well as bonus moves that allow you to take a second card immediately. As in the original game, each card that you acquire can be built, discarded for coins, or used to construct a wonder.
Each player starts with four wonder cards, and the construction of a wonder provides its owner with a special ability. Only seven wonders can be built, though, so one player will end up short.
Players can purchase resources at any time from the bank, or they can gain cards during the game that provide them with resources for future building; as you acquire resources, the cost for those particular resources increases for your opponent, representing your dominance in this area.
A player can win 7 Wonders: Duel in one of three ways. Each time that you acquire a military card, you advance the military marker toward your opponent’s capital, giving you a bonus at certain positions. If you reach the opponent’s capital, you win the game immediately. Similarly, if you acquire any six of seven different scientific symbols, you achieve scientific dominance and win immediately. If neither of these situations occurs, then the player with the most points at the end of the game wins.
What others say about this product?
“WOW! This is a great game! I have never played 7 Wonders and simply bought this game based on the reviews. There is a reason it is rated so high! It is awesome. The variability and mechanics of this game are great. The instructions are fair. I read them several times and there were a handful of times I had to consult Boardgame Geek for clarity. No big deal. The components are also very good. The only problem I have is my wife keeps beating me:) I highly recommend this game. If you are new to 7 Wonders, like I was, watch some tutorial videos on Youtube. I found them very helpful. This is my new favorite game!”
“I bought this for my husband as he likes card games but ended up really liking it myself. The card art is great and it puts you on the edge of your seat hoping a card will or won’t be taken so that you can plan your strategy. The first game he was only 2 spaces away from beating me with military but I came back and was able to hold defeat off until victory points were counted. We have hundreds of games but this is one of the top to be played frequently.”
“The best thing ever made. Me and my friend loved the original 7 wonders but always had to play the 2 player adaptation, which is quite complicated. Now that "duel" is out we dont have to play on of our favorite games with a "ghost." This is a must buy for any gamer's collection.”
