This one I got on a sale, and am suprised to find out that it costs 20 bucks...
7 Grand Steps is a sweet game, it has an interesting concept but yet it is very plain and eventually that's a board game, and I got the feeling that the advertisements tried to make it look like something more than that..
While I can't say that this game is *just* a board game, because, yes, it is more than that, it is still *mainly* a board game,
It has story elements in it, as it involves raising a family (kind of), and progress with it from generation to generation holding onto the wheels of time (really, the board is a wheel of time).
During the board-game moments you'll have to spread skills to your children and make some decisions from time to time when some textual messages show themselves, describing a certain situation.
Those are the basics, and yes, there IS some more, but not much.
This game really rocks, as a board-game, because it's different and executes new and original ideas in it.
Yet, it's extremely simple and eventually it's merely a time-killer, for me at least. And while I really liked it and played it for a couple of times I just didn't feel like returning to it and felt I've already seen everything this game can offer rather quickly.
I do recommend it, but perhaps when it's on a sale or something, because I can't see why it costs 20 dollars.
The title on the steam library says "7 Grand Steps, Step 1.." So maybe that means there are other parts coming out, but I don't see any official statement about it.
