Better, Stronger, WONDER: Play it now!

10 Years later, the well-named game gets a lifting for the best 7 Wonders you've ever played!

7 Wonders was the first winner of the Kennerspiel des Jahres, the Enthusiast's Game of the Year, and had immediate success.

The new edition features new cover and interior artwork with a brand-new logo, and a larger box to match other products in this line. The wonders feature both day and night-time artwork, and cards have new icons that allow them to be more easily read. Additionally, the rules have been updated to allow players to pick up and play faster.

And Yes, it's online and you can play it now.
The world-famous game from Antoine Bauza is now available on BGA with its latests improvements.

To list some of them:

- Whole game graphics upgraded
- New Day and Night cards for Wonders: not only A side and B side, with some graphic enhancements
- New icons, easier to catch and see. Also colorblind-proof.
- Rules have been cleaned-up and made more clear for all
- Overall game balancing has been improved: no drama, no cry.
- Icons are improved to match the excellent 7 Wonders Duel iconography feel.
- Olympia has new powers, as well as some other small things you will have to discover.

It is there, of course, to accompany the release of the game, but not only: it's a real upgrade of the game, that you can enjoy right now on BGA.
We would like to thank Repos Prod, the publisher, as well as Antoine Bauza for this fantastic game, and of course, our team for making it... a wonder.

You can find the game here:

Oh and, don't forget: if you don't like novelties, new ways to play, etc, you can still play with the old version by switching it in the options ;)


Stay tuned. There are plenty of wonders to come...

I definitely like having the bright red "free upgrade" icons. If there is better balancing, that's to the good. Some civs' wonders definitely have seemed overpriced for what they offer.

For other graphic comments, the only downside is that I found the resource symbols a bit harder to see -- maybe it's just these old eyes -- but I'm sure I'll get used to it.

Overall, I like it. Thanks!

The cards are hard to see, symbols are too small. I don't understand last changes, in my opinion 7Wonders and Carcassone after changes are more worse to play then earlier

Why is Arena being forced to switch to the new version in the middle of a season? It completely changes the balance, requires new strategies for some wonders and probably contains a number of bugs.

Please revert it back to the old version or at least allow us to select it.
