Roll Through the Ages is an empire-building dice game thematically based on the Through the Ages board game which in turn is based on the hit computer game Sid Meier’s Civilization (which in turn is based on the original Civilization board game! ) This dice game – with each game lasting about half an hour – is considered a quick and easy alternative to the Through the Ages board game which has considerably more complex mechanics and can take upwards of 4-5 hours.
Roll Through the Ages comes with a set of 7 dice unique to this game, 4 pegboards, colored pegs and a stack of score sheets, and that is all you need to play the game. The game mechanics are also pretty easy to pick up: a turn starts with a player rolling dice to see what resources they get. Goods and food are collected and workers are fed. The workers build cities and monuments, and then you get to buy a development. That’s the basis of the game, and players repeat these actions until the game ends, which happens when all the monuments have been built or any single player has 5 developments. The player with the most victory points wins the game.
