Welcome to America, Christopher Columbus! The Colonization game takes us to the era of the conquest of the New World (XV-XIX centuries), the century of great exploration and discovery. At the beginning of the game, you have a ship and a small group of colonists. You don't know at all where you are going to sail, but you know that you have the courage to endure this journey. So, you are there, and you need to establish your first colony. As the colonies grow, you will have more and more problems. To win this game, you need to be a great strategist and maintain good relations with the natives, honor their customs and mores.
Colonization is your chance to change history. You decide what is good and what is bad, you make your own laws. But one day you have to make a choice between your homeland and your own colony.
