The government’s blockade has rekindled interest in board games, which is unprecedented. People all over the world are restoring their old games, throwing dice and spinning the spinning frame, and have a happy time.
For ordinary table game players, this is all good, but for hobbies, there are more interesting aspects. Over the years, people have invested a lot of details in board games; some of them are almost impossible to play in a reasonable time.
This list features the longest legally played board games, and they are not out of timidity. If you have played these games, please share your experience in the comments and let everyone know how many hours you spent playing board games.
Don’t be fooled by the title for this one; it’s going to take more than seven hours to get through 7 Ages. The game takes place across 6,000 years of history, with players representing dynasties that decide the fate of humanity. The game is broken down into seven distinct ages spread across the millennia.
On the surface, you might think of 7 Ages as a military strategy game, but that would be inaccurate. Instead, it’s a highly complex strategy game that puts the player in a position of power. They must guide a civilization through its development from start to finish.
That makes it intensely complicated, and as a result, you can expect to play it for at least 480 minutes (8 hours). The game board features the entire planet, broken up into equally-sized spaces spread across the continents.
Players will need to manage everything from their civilization’s economy and military expansion to scientific discovery and more. It’s a game that requires a great deal of attention, but playing through it and winning offers up an achievement that won’t be matched quickly by your friends.
