In the world of Legacy: Gears of Time, the course of history is maintained by
the operators of the Ancient Machine. As an Antiquitect, the machine binds you
to the present while you travel back through time. Charged with influencing the activities of the
past, you are resolute in ensuring that the technological advancement of the world
remains intact. Excellent planning, adaptability and influence are key to returning to the
present with the greatest Legacy, claiming victory over your rivals!
Legacy is a strategic card game mechanically rooted in its time travel theme.
Players navigate the timeline, establishing and influencing technologies,
to ensure increasingly elaborate technology chains remain intact. At the end
of each round players score Legacy points for having the most influence over
a technology, and for each time a more advanced technologies depends on it;
the highest scoring player at the end of the game is the winner!

"I fell in love with this game ... not only in its own right, but as an educational tool to give young people a sense of how technology grows and progresses. But, honestly, mostly because it's just a lot of fun."
