So what do you guys think of the game modes? Do you use them a lot? All the time? Which ones? - Apocalypse is my least favourite so far : lots of RNG and doesn’t add much strategy. A skilled player will be long finished before the asteroids start to hit anyways - secret societies: love this one, although I have one issue with it. I think the fact you get access to so many early governor titles whenever you discover a society makes the game much easier. The mode itself is really fun but I would like to see a different system with regards to the titles so that you can’t use your discovered societies to promote Pingala or Magnus - tech shuffle : also pretty RNG obviously but does add strategy with regards to getting boosts and certain paths of advancements I think. Great mode to try with the new civ Babylon (at least the tech side of it) - dramatic ages : I like it because of the harsher dark ages and the policy cards instead of the dedications. Definitely nicer for players that want to make the game a bit tougher - heroes and legends : it’s early days but it’s definitely a lot of fun. At first glance it’s the other way around here: this makes the game easier (too early to tell if the AI handles the heroes intelligently), but I do like the fun this mode brings to the game.
