Build a thriving civilization--in under an hour! Collect goods, assign workers to build cities and erect monuments, advance your civilization through cultural and scientific developments, but don't forget to harvest enough food to feed your growing population. Grab those dice and Roll Through the Ages in this addictive and strategic game. Players roll dice to obtain commodities and workers to build up their civilizations. Dice can be rerolled twice unless they come up as a hazard. Players use their workers to build infrastructure to support additional works or to build monuments that are worth points. At the same time commodities are gathered which allow your civilization to develop. Once all monuments or five developments are achieved by a player the game ends at the end of the round, points are counted, and a victor is declared! GRYPHON BOOKSHELF SERIES #2

A quick civilization game with dice that works! May 31, 2012
Reviewer: EndersGame from BGG  
Roll Through the Ages is a brilliant and innovative design for a dice game with a strong civilization theme.

Player pegboards have tracks for managing different goods: Wood, Stone, Pottery, Cloth, and Spearheads. A Food track is used to record food production, needed to feed your Cities, which are represented by large wooden dice with icons depicting food, workers, resources, coins, and disasters.

You roll the dice Yahtzee style to determine what you do on your turn: producing goods and food, building cities and monuments, and developing technologies like Agriculture and Coinage, while avoiding disasters.  As a dice-rolling filler, this has to be commended for offering a genuinely civilization experience packed into 30 minutes. There's a basic tech tree, interesting choices, tension, and a high fun factor. The innovative game-play and civ-theme makes this a favourite.
