Top 10 list of my favorite games!Posted .
The challenge is to build the 7 Wonders while solving classic match 3 puzzles. The game board is located at the work site and your job is to provide workers with the tools they need to build the structures. What a work force! As you free the corner stones and capstones, these industrious folk busily construct the Wonders. They are a delight to watch but don't observe too closely or for any length of time because the clock might run out. Also if you don't match the runes and release the tools in a timely manner, your workers will start waving flags, go on strike, or walk off the site. Before entering the work site, you will be given a beautifully rendered graphic of the Wonder you are going to build along with a detailed historical description. You can access these later by selecting “Free Game” on the Main Menu page. You can also play any of the levels you have previously completed here. The game is easy to learn and the first Wonders are easy to complete. The levels become exceedingly more difficult as you progress. Power ups? Three different fireballs appear on the game board when you match 4 runes, 5+ runes or multiple matches. They can eliminate an entire horizontal or vertical row, or will randomly remove multiple runes. Very exciting! The creators have conveniently included instructions for playing the game and can be accessed by selecting “Help” on the Main Menu screen. 7 Wonders provides hours of entertainment and we have enjoyed playing it immensely. I am currently working on the 7th Wonder, "The Lighthouse at Alexandria". It is proving to be extremely challenging but with perseverance I will complete the structure. I want to find out what lies at the end of this adventure in the ancient world...or will it be the beginning of a new one?I would recommend this to a friend

Fun to PlayPosted .
This game seems better than just a match game as you have a piece of stone that you have to work to the bottom of the screen to complete one of the seven wonders in each level. Lots of colors and easy to learn but stays difficult enough to keep you playing for hours.I would recommend this to a friend
