Wonders, Multiplayer Ruleset Edit


Wonders are special buildings which enhance a player's civilization. In Multiplayer Ruleset, there are two kinds of Wonders. Great Wonders can be built only by the first nation who makes them. Small Wonders can be built by every player. In Multiplayer, most wonders are Small Wonders. Unless otherwise noted, a Wonder that works on "every city" will only be effective for every city on the same continent. Once built, a Wonder is placed in the city that constructed it, and cannot be sold or destroyed (unless the city is destroyed or conquered). Some Wonders become obsolete by the discovery of a certain technology, and lose their effect. Here all the Wonders are listed, in alphabetical order. Names of Great Wonders are in bold.
