1701 A.D. Gold Edition is a compilation of the original 1701 A.D. and the new expansion game, Sunken Dragon. Sunken Dragon adds 11 new missions and a new world editor, which by themselves are an exciting game expansion. Throw in the original game alongside for a total price of $30, and you have a winner.
The original game garnered great reviews and rightly so. A solid economic simulation, the original game had some great things going for it. The game's economics, diplomacy and trade features meshed almost perfectly. And, it was just a charming game. While not the most complex strategy title around, it was a lot of fun.
