Innovation is a civilization-building card game by the designer of Glory to Rome, Carl Chudyk. It contains 105 cards organized into 10 progressing ages, each representing a different idea, technology, or innovation throughout history. Every card has a unique ability, leading to interesting combos, interactions, and diversified play experiences across multiple games. It is built on simple base mechanics, with the complexity deriving from the wide variety of game text on the cards. It won the 2010 Golden Geek Award for Best Card Game, awarded by BoardGameGeek.
Innovation Third Edition is a new packaging for the base set of Innovation. It features all new
card illustrations, graphical design, and game balance updates. It comes in a smaller packaging and a lower price point ($20, from $25), now matching the size of Asmadi's
other small-box games (Red7, Mottainai Mini, etc).
