Thrones and Patriots Wonders

Select Wonders

The pinnacle of any Nation is the creation of a monument so great, so magnificent and awe inspiring that it can truly be considered a Wonder of the world. In Rise of Nations, these monuments are no less amazing than their real life counterparts. As you can see from the bonuses listed below, wonders provide your Nation with a great many bonuses and are well worth the investment. You will also notice that each wonder has an associated point value. This value is used for scoring when attempting to achieve a Wonder victory. Wonders have a limited availability of usually 2 per Age and only one of each wonder may be built by all players. In other words, the first player to create a colloseum will be the only player in the game with that wonder. This limitation when combined with being able to set the number of Wonder points needed for victory makes for some interesting strategy and game play. Do you build the early wonders to get their bonuses despite their low point value, or do you advance in ages to get the higher point values of the later wonders?
