Ages are a gameplay mechanic which unlock features of government as turns go on. A scenario can start in any age, any year within that age and any day within that year, which is in the time frame of an age as listed:

  • Age of Civilisations (5000 BC - 301BC)
  • Age of Expansion (300 BC - 499)
  • Age of Darkness (500 - 1065)
  • Age of Feudalism (1066 - 1491)
  • Age of Discovery (1492 - 1749)
  • Age of Revolution (1750 - 1835)
  • Age of Industrialisation (1836 - 1860)
  • Age of Imperialism (1861 - 1918)
  • Age of Conflict (1919 - 1946)
  • Age of Brinkmanship (1947 - 1990)
  • Age of Information (1991 - 2049)
  • Age of Tomorrow (2050 - 5000)

If the player is not part of any of those ages, which means that their year is past 5000 AD, then none of the ages' effects will affect the player, and the year will go past 5000 AD
