Summary: For all of you guys who are thinking of buying this game from this specific person. I must tell you that I bought this same game (used) and it did not come with all the stuff it was said to come with.. I didn't get the disc for "war chiefs" nor the other one of Japanese edition.... all I got was the original age of empires 3. NOT the gold edition. I'm very disappointed due to i payed more for nothing...
Summary: I am faithful to the AOE games but i was honorably disappointed in how they handled the shipping of the game. BAD:The case was broken and the booklet was ripped. plus the case wasn't even closed all the way. what was the point of putting tap on it if you not even going to close the case? the tap was cut down the middle. GOOD: at least the discs where in great condition considering how they where shipped.
Great worker placement/area control game, offensive theme

Summary: Age Of Empires III has worker placement, area control, and set collection, making it a solid Euro, but also has (limited) warfare which gives it a little something extra. Granted that I've only ever played 4 worker placement games, but Age Of Empires is probably my favorite.
Its not an overly long game, but there can be some downtime while players choose where to place their colonists.
The components are a mixed bag. The board is terrible.
