What do we like about  Clash of Cultures?

  • It’s easy to learn
  • It’s shorter than other similar mechanism games…by about half.
  • You win by completing objectives. Objectives determine what you do. You can’t always apply the same opening moves. If you do that in this game, you will lose. Because this game forces you to play differently each time, it doesn’t get stale.
