Eagle Games has announced that when this Through the Ages Project reaches the $80,000 Funding Level, all Backers will get a FREE copy of the highly-rated Oltre Mare game by Emanuele Ornella!  This means that when $80,000 is pledged, in total ALL Backers will be receiving these FREE games: Warriors; Dragon Hordes, Bacchus, Igels, Masters Gallery, Musketeers, The Club and Oltre Mare!

Through the Ages is the All-Time #1 Ranked multi-player (3+ players) board game on Board Game Geek (BGG).  In this Vlaada Chvàtil masterpiece of game design, players use strategy and resource management to guide their civilizations from Antiquity through the Middle Ages and then into Modern Times. 

What will your civilization be like? Will it be warlike? Technologically advanced? Religious? Artistic? Choose from Leaders such as Hammurabi, Napoleon, and Gandhi. Build the Pyramids, the Great Wall, or the Eiffel Tower.

Your Civilization's culture is yours to shape – and you can do it differently every time you play the game.

Through the Ages is playable in three different difficulty levels. Play the short Tutorial Game to learn the game mechanics. Play the Advanced Game when you are ready to face the consequences of politics and corruption. And when you want an even greater challenge, play the Full Version of Through the Ages and take your civilization from spear-throwing to space flight.

EU, Canadian and Australian supporters take note!

We are now shipping from inside the EU, Canada and Australia. It will likely take a little more time for the game to get to you as a result but this means that you will NOT be paying additional fees and taxes to receive your games.

Add-Ons and extra games will add more shipping cost for each one added, but otherwise the costs mentioned are the final shipping costs--you will not be paying extra for customs and taxes that we are aware of.

Eagle & Gryphon Games are committed to producing games of the highest quality, both in production and game play. We feel it is important that people who buy Through the Ages receive a game that is well made and will be in playable condition for many years. Through the Ages will be produced using the best printing, box and components available.

Thanks for your support of Through the Ages!
Please direct any questions to: customer-service@eagle-gryphon.com

Risks and challenges

We stand by our products, but sometimes issues do happen. Please contact our customer service with regard to any such issues within 90 days of receiving your copy of Through the Ages.

Shipping issues are relatively uncommon, but they do sometimes occur, especially when shipping to destinations outside of the US. We will obtain tracking information when it is possible, but sometimes it is not. We cannot guarantee that there will not be shipping problems, as we cannot guarantee the service and reliability of the various postal/delivery services involved around the world. You will have to assume that risk along with us.

Eagle Games (and its affiliate Gryphon Games) has completed and delivered on over 26 Kickstarter projects to date. Only two current Eagle Games are delayed with regards to originally-projected delivery dates: Dawn: Rise of the Accolytes is currently finishing production in China. We expect it to be shipped from China in August and delivered to Backers in September. And Defenders of the Realm: Minions will be completed in three weeks and shipped to the US in July, arriving in August. We keep Backers notified by Updates about the status of their projects. We deliver on our promises reliably and usually on time (the very few delays we have had were related to production issues which we have only, at best, partial control over).

To put it simply, you will get everything you are promised when you pledge to one of our Kickstarter Projects, and it will be delivered to you in as timely a manner as possible.

FAQ

  • $50, which is the $5 Pledge level plus $45 for the Zong Shi game with FREE shipping if you are in the US. For this you will receive Zong Shi (only) and all of the stretch goals. If you are outside the US, or if you want to receive other Add-On games, please follow the information above and pledge accordingly.

  • All you need to do is pledge the $55 for that level and then add the appropriate shipping for the country we are shipping to (see the Shipping section in the left column above). To enter your pledge you will need to state that you want shipping within the US even though that is not the case. Sorry we messed this up when we created the project but this is all we can do about it now. You will receive a Survey after the KS project for TTA ends. We will make it clear in the
    Survey that you will indicate the Early Bird pledge, the proper shipping amount for where you
    live. Don't worry about it, it will all come out correctly in the end! Thanks for your trust on this.

    Last updated:
  • You are buying the Third Edition of Through the Ages! This is the fifth time we have reprinted this error-free Third Edition of TTA. The first and second editions had problems that were all corrected in the Third Edition. There are no changes in this reprint at all. It is exactly the same as the prior Third Edition reprints. The only language that Eagle Games is authorized to print of TTA is ENGLISH! Therefore you will be receiving ONLY English copies of TTA and no other languages are available via this Kickstarter.

    Last updated:
  • Eagle Games is solely responsible for this Kickstarter. We operate under license from CGE, Czech Games Edition, that we have had since 2007, to publish the English-language version (only) of Through the Ages. CGE is not responsible in any way for the content of this Kickstarter or the administration of it. We think that Vlaada Chvàtil (of CGE) is a genius of game design and that TTA really shows off his ability in grand fashion!

    Last updated:
  • NO! We only produce and we only offer the English language version of TTA. Please look for your language version at your local game shops or on-line vendors.
