Let me just say this... that tutorial... WOW
I am an avid boardgamer but I still had not tried Through the Ages, because I mainly play solo boardgames or coop (on account of not having that many gamers around... though my wife is now starting to play deckbuilders and light-medium boardgames, not something as heavy as this), but I do have and play Nations (which is a "lighter" TtA that is soloable).
TtA is very very good, and the tutorial does indeed stand out because of its humourour tones. But the rulebooks from Vlaada already stand out because of that (another app like that is Galaxy Trucker).
even if the price is high (11 euros), it is more than justifiable because the boardgame sets you back about 45 and you need people to play it. So, for me it is awesome.
I have not delved a whole lot into the game (just the tutorial and checked the challenges) but it does seem meaty, even if it is just 150 mgbs.
