The multiplayer is broken

Yup, we know. We're hard at work to fix the issue.

It's either really broken, or broken beyond salvation. Either way, we WILL get it working again ASAP, but it may take time.

Thank you for understanding, and our sincere apologies.

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.”
4/5 – Gamezebo

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.
