"Overall this was a great game. It's easily picked up and played for a few hours with a lot of options for replaying. Definitely worth the twenty bucks and the download. Besides, no one wants to arm wrestle me for my cards in Ancient Empires Lux."

"The game's creators seem to have taken the historical context of each scenario seriously. Barbarian hordes hover on the outskirts of the map, waiting for the civilized empires to exhaust themselves before sweeping over the board."
"The more land you control, the more armies you get, and the more powerful you become. With the ancient empires theme the game has a much more epic feel than the other installments in the Lux series. The interface is also a bit more polished than its predecessors. Too bad you can't play the Rome scenario right off the bat."
