“to play in around 5 minutes for a fun, competitive game is both rare and impressive”
4/5 – Pixelated Cartboard

“If you’re a strategy fan in general, it might be the perfect game to add to your arsenal for those days when you’re short on time but still want to play. It’s also a great game for families who are planning road trips.”

About This Game



Eight-Minute Empire, by Ryan Laukat, is a quick Civilization/Exploration game using card-driven area control.

In Eight-Minute Empire, 2-5 players take turns selecting a card from the six displayed. This card gives the player a resource, and also has an action which the player takes immediately. Actions help players take over the map, but the resources are worth points at the end of the game, so players have to balance the two aspects. Players spread across the map in order to collect points at the end of the game by having majority control in regions and continents.



Eight-Minute Empire is the super-quick area control game requiring tough decisions. It’s easy to learn and perfect for when you only have a few minutes.

  • Recruit troops to strengthen your army
  • Command your forces to acquire new provinces
  • Challenge your friends all over the world
  • Sail across the seas & build castles to expand your empire
  • Eliminate enemy troops to weaken your adversaries
  • Collect goods to increase your advantage
