7 WONDERS DUEL OVERVIEW
Welcome to 7 Wonders Duel! 7 Wonders Duel is a game for 2 players in the world of 7 Wonders, the best-selling board game. It uses some of the main mechanics of its older brother, but offers a new challenge, specially adapted for one-on-one games.
In 7 Wonders Duel, each player is leading a civilization and will construct Buildings and Wonders. All of the Buildings constructed by a player together with their Wonders are called a “city”.
A game plays out over 3 Ages, each Age using one of the 3 decks of cards (first the cards from Age I, then Age II, and finally Age III). Each Age card represents a Building.
These Ages are played out in a similar fashion, with each player having the chance to play approximately 10 cards per Age to earn coins, strengthen their armies, make scientific discoveries, and develop their city.
In 7 Wonders Duel, there are 3 ways to claim victory: military supremacy, scientific supremacy, and civilian victory.
Military and scientific victories can happen at any time and end the game immediately. If, by the end of the third Age, no one has yet won the game, the players add up their victory points, and the player with the highest score is declared the winner.

7 WONDERS DUEL HOW TO PLAY
In Duel, players are not drafting cards simultaneously from hands of cards, but from a display of face-down and face-up cards arranged at the start of each 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.
