With it being safer to stay at home during this pandemic and not much in terms of entertainment activities to go participate in anyway, a lot of people are looking for ways to keep boredom at bay. Some are playing games while others are making them and this is a case of the latter. One insanely talented Age of Empires fan decided to build a tabletop version of the game and ended up with this epic Age of Empires board game!
Being a huge Age of Empires fan myself, this insane Age of Empires 2 inspired board game caught my eye recently when I was killing some time on Reddit. To say that this Age of Empires Board Game is impressive would be the understatement of the year!
This epic Age of Empires board game was created by Ashley Yeates. Apparently they started off with an Age of Empires card game as a basis for the game and went from there. If you didn’t know there was an AoE card game, you aren’t alone because I had no clue either!
I can’t even imagine how many hours went into making this Age of Empires 2 board game with all of the incredibly detailed buildings and pieces and everything. And from reading the Reddit comments, Ashley doesn’t know either since they didn’t track the hours. I’m assuming in the hundreds at least though.
I’ve seen some pretty amazing Age of Empires related things in the past like the Age of Empires 2 LEGO builds that I posted in the past, but this is an entirely different level of epic! I wish I had the skills to build something like this, much less the time.
