Eight-Minute Empire !!LINK!!

It is interesting how little the removal of enemies mattered in the grand scheme of things while playing Eight Minute Empire: Legends. This really is an empire building game, and while conflict may occur, there is a certain pleasantness to the idea of earning victory points in an area control game by slaying a dragon, capturing a lofty tower, or simply spreading to populate a once desolate island of rocky crags.

Eight-Minute Empire

I love empire building games. Taking your tiny starting civilization from its meager beginnings to a an empire that stretches across the known world is a thrilling concept.

Eight Minute Empire seeks to let you conquer the known world a whole lot quicker. Can you really create an empire and conquer the world in just eight minutes? Read of to find out!

The game play in Eight Minute Empire is brilliantly simple. It has to be to claim an eight-minute playing time. The goal of the game is to spread your troops out from the starting region and to control as much of the world as possible. The game will play over a set number of rounds and each turn, a player must draft a card from six available. Then he takes the listed action on the card. The actions range from moving troops to adding more troops to founding cities. The card a player drafts will also contain one of five resources that will give a player victory points at the end of the game. After the specified number of rounds, the player with the most victory points wins (based on areas controlled and sets collected).

The double-sided board of Eight-Minute Empire is small for an empire and depicts fictional continents comprised of territories and separated by water. There are dotted lines on the board to indicate where you can cross from one continent to another.

Brendan Trapper got the scoring started for the Cardinals, finishing on his first three point shot of the game. Ryan Gentile tied the game up at 7-7 off a defensive rebound by Trapper who transitioned the ball, allowing Gentile to go hard to the basket. Trapper came out strong and took it end to end off a steal ending in a dunk. The Highlanders kept the game close, but the Cardinals completely took the momentum at the eight-minute mark. Brad Fowler pushed the lead up to ten on a layup that was assisted by Jack Foley and the Cardinals never looked back. Eric Kegler converted on his two free throw attempts to put the team up by 14. Gentile, Brendan McRoy, Joe Morrell and Akinlana Popoola all made free throw attempts in the last two minutes to add to the overall first half success. The Cardinals had 11 different players tally points and going into halftime the Cardinals were leading by a score of 47-24.

"Empire of the Air" owes its tight and provocative script to Geoffrey Ward, Burns's principal writer for "The Civil War." The script puts demands of concentration on the viewer far in excess of the eight-minute commercial television menu and even beyond PBS standard fare. That was precisely the intention, says Burns. 041b061a72
