“So that the things done by mankind do not fade in time, and so that neither the deeds nor wonders, whether executed by Greeks or barbarians, become forgotten, and other things—and on account of what reason they fought each other.”
–Herodotus, on the purpose of writing his Histories

When the Persians invaded Greece in the early fifth century BC, they recognized that only one civilization could prevail in the eastern Mediterranean. Both had made remarkable inventions: theatre, philosophy, gardens, laws. Both had constructed magnificent monuments that made it onto the canonized list of the world’s seven great wonders. Both had incredible scientific knowledge and military might. Nevertheless, it was impossible for them to peacefully coexist. One had to triumph and the other had to fall.

In 7 Wonders: Duel, you and your opponent each lead an ancient civilization to greatness—but only one of you can win. Over the course of three Ages you both draft cards, advancing your civilization one development at a time. You can choose to become a military superpower and conquer your opponent in battle or seek scientific supremacy. You can bolster your economy with markets and ports or create great public works like aqueducts and senates. Above all, you can build magnificent wonders which will give your civilization lasting renown and ease your path to victory.
