Better AI opponents awaits you!

19. February 2024

Hello Leaders,

We have good news for you! A new update of our beloved Through the Ages is available in your favorite stores. What’s changed?

  • We improved AI opponents based on your feedback. So, all AIs should react better to current situations.
  • Inconsistency errors should be rare in online games. Because of that, we decided to lock the game when an inconsistency error appears. That helps our support team fix it quickly for you so you can continue playing without more damage. If the error occurs in a blitz game, players can change that to an asynchronous one, wait for the support, and finish the game afterward. We hope that improves your experience in online games.

We would like to thank all players who gave us feedback and suggested any improvements to deliver this update to everyone! Your help is more than appreciated!

Krátký výpadek serverů

2. February 2024

V rámci nové aktualizace potřebujeme na chvíli vypnout servery. Celá operace začne dnes v 11:45 a potrvá přibližně do 12:30 . Většinu doby budou servery v běhu, ale může se stát, že budou o něco pomalejší, případně na pár minut nedostupné. Omlouváme se za krátký výpadek a děkujeme za pochopení.

Děkujeme za trpělivost!

Improved AI awaits you in a new update

7. November 2023

Hello Leaders,

As we announced earlier, we have quite an important update for our beloved Through the Ages:

  • We improved the AI opponents to deliver you an even better experience when you’re playing with them (no matter if it’s a singleplayer or multiplayer game).
  • We fixed some issues some of you reported to us. Thanks for that; you’re helping us to make the game better.
  • We updated all keyboards with non-Latin alphabets, which should allow especially all Asian players to communicate using the alphabet they prefer.

To be able to deliver these improvements, we had to decide to make a change in the list of the supported devices. Since this update, Android 8.0 (or higher) or iOS 11 (or higher) are needed to play Through the Ages online. Older devices that don’t receive the latest updates can still enjoy all the singleplayer content in the game.

New update is here! Changes of AI and warning for Android players.

21. September 2023
Dear leaders,

We prepared another update of the Through the Ages for you. This time, we focused on AI players in multiplayer games, mainly in tournaments, that you asked for.

What’s new?

The threshold for resigning is set up by the second best player in the particular situation (instead of by the penultimate player as it used to be). This change is applied in all multiplayer games.

The other change is available exclusively for the tournaments. AI players won’t offer any pacts and will refuse all of them offered by other players.

Last but not least, we have one more news for you. As far as we want to continue to support the game in the future, we are forced to end the support of particular old operation systems. Otherwise, we can’t guarantee all functionality of the upcoming updates. Therefore, we decided to support all Android devices since Android 8.0. That means this update is your last if you have older devices (mainly with Android 6 or 7). Thanks for understanding.

Agenti s povolením sdílet

29. August 2023

V rámci nové aktualizace jsme si pro vás mimo jiné připravili hned několik novinek. Tou první je možnost propojit svůj účet se svým Google účtem prostřednictvím služby Google Play Games. To vám například umožní pohodlnější používání jednoho účtu na více zařízeních.

Druhou novinkou jsou rozšířené možnosti sdílení věcí ze hry. Pokud se budete chtít pochlubit svou hrou, výsledky nebo spymasterovskou výzvou, můžete si nechat jednoduše vygenerovat hezké obrazovky, které přímo ze hry můžete sdílet na sociálních sítích, e-mailem nebo dalšími kanály. Doufáme, že se vám nové sdílecí obrazovky budou líbit. Schválně nám dejte vědět na facebookové skupině Krycích jmen nebo na Discordu, které obrazovky se vám líbí nejvíce.

Dále jsme:

  • Zpřehlednili vyhledávání slov na internetu.
  • Opravili časové anomálie po otevření aplikace z pozadí.
  • Vylepšili okno pro kontaktování podpory, aby šel psát lépe delší text.
  • Provedli dalších 17 drobnějších oprav.

Opět platí, že dříve, než se pustíte do instalace aktualizace, doporučujeme si zabezpečit svůj účet. Předejdete tak možným komplikacím, kdyby se během instalace cokoliv nepovedlo. V opačném případě se může stát, že přijdete o svůj dosavadní postup hrou. Účet můžete zabezpečit v detailu svého profilu.

Aktualizaci můžete stahovat tak, jak jste zvyklí, z App Store a Google Play. Doufáme, že nová aktualizace vám opět o něco zpříjemní herní zážitek. Uvidíme se ve hře!

Problémy na serveru

28. August 2023

EDIT: Hra by měla být opět stabilní už větší část noci. Děkujeme za trpělivost a znovu se omlouváme za komplikace.

Vážení agenti,

narazili jsme na serverové problémy spojené s vyhodnocováním bonusů vašich vylepšení. Pracujeme na opravě, ale doporučujeme odehrávat jen nutné minimální množství her, aby u vás došlo k co nejmenším ztrátám bonusů. O novinkách budeme dále informovat, omlouváme se za komplikace a děkujeme za pochopení.

Údržba serverů

24. August 2023

EDIT: Tu část údržby, kterou bylo potřeba udělat při vypnutém serveru, máme úspěšně za sebou. Hra by teď měla být plně hratelná a servery dostupné. Děkujeme všem za trpělivost a přejeme příjemnou hru.

Vážení agenti,

V rámci zlepšování našich serverů provádíme údržbu, kterou jak se ukázalo, není možné provést za běhu. Proto jsme byli nuceni dočasně servery vypnout. Jakmile budeme s jejich aktualizací a údržbou hotovi, hra bude opět plně k dispozici. Pro jistotu jsme vám všem přidali 8 hodin do rezervy tak, aby vám nehrozilo, že z některých her mezitím vytimeoutujete. Omlouváme se za komplikace a děkujeme za pochopení.

Time reserve for blitz games is back!

8. August 2023
Hello leaders, We listened to you and prepared a new update for our beloved game. Based on your feedback, we returned the time reserve for Age IV in Blitz games. And we also decided to change the “on tap” setting slightly. Some players misused it to delay some games. So, now, “on tap” actions in online games won’t wait forever. The actions will be triggered in 15 seconds (for Blitz games), 30 seconds (for Live games), and 60 seconds (for Asynchronous games). We believe these changes make your online experience even better.

We are experiencing some technical difficulties on our servers

8. July 2023

EDIT: Everything should be solved now and the game is up and running.

Dear leaders,

After a while, inconsistency errors are appearing more often than usual. You receive the pop-up message that two events were played, or the game could even crash in some cases. If this happen, please do not continue the game and reach us via e-mail or the support button. Do not forget to send us the name of the game, its ID or the replay code. We’ll fix the game for you to continue playing without obstacles.

It’s also possible that the game could crash you after you hit the online game button in the main menu. We’re working on the fix for that. If anything like that is happening to you, please let us know, and don’t forget to send us your nickname so that we can check it as quickly as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Faster tournaments with a new update

9. June 2023

Hello Leaders,

It’s here again. What? Another update of our beloved game. You will find it in your preferred online store right now. Based on the feedback of the community and the players who organize tournaments in Through the Ages, the biggest news is that we have decided to merge the time reserve for the 3rd and 4th Ages. There won’t be any restart of the time reserve anymore. We believe it makes games a little bit quicker.

But that's not the only change we have prepared. We have fixed some technical and UI issues, such as improving the readability of card texts in all languages. Additionally, you should experience fewer inconsistency errors after the update. We hope you welcome all these changes, as they will enhance your gaming experience.

We would like to express our gratitude to everyone who constantly sends us their feedback, as it allows us to continue improving the game. Your contribution is highly appreciated.

Řekl tady někdo “nová slovíčka”?

8. June 2023

Ano, je to tak! Právě jsme na App Storu i Google Play uvolnili novou aktualizaci hry, která přináší několik drobných oprav a vylepšení (jako třeba některé nové ikonky, responzivitu nadpisů a podobně), umožňuje nově posílat personalizované zprávy konkrétním hráčům a lehce upravuje výpočet ceny kufříků. A pak je tady jedna věc, která jistě potěší nejednoho z vás.

S touto aktualizací jsme do hry přidali přes 170 nových bonusových slov (vychází to na něco mezi 20 až 30 slovy v každé kategorii). Nově v kufřících můžete narazit třeba na CHROPTÍCÍ CHÝŠI, TOMA BOMBADILA, KOLIBŘÍKA nebo na některé další hlášky z oblíbených filmů.

Extra bychom ale rádi vypíchli 2 slova, která se nově ve hře objeví. Předně je to ALŽBĚTA II., na kterou můžete narazit v kategorii historie. A dále jsme do her a Česka přidali DESKOVKY PRO 3 BRATRY jednoduše proto, že se z nich stal fenomén, který si svoji kartu ve hře zaslouží. Takže hurá do aktualizování hry a lov na nová slovíčka může začít!

Samozřejmě, jako pokaždé, důrazně doporučujeme si zabezpečit svůj účet heslem před instalací aktualizace. Vyhnete se tak nepříjemnostem v případě, že by se aktualizace nepovedla a vy jste museli hru instalovat celou znovu. Bez zabezpečení heslem se může stát, že v takovém případě přijdete o dosavadní postup hrou. Děkujeme všem, kteří již svůj účet zabezpečili!

Šťastnou hru přeje

A new update changes some achievements

25. May 2023

Dear agents,

We are currently finalizing the new update. This time it will require a short server downtime, which we have scheduled for Thursday at 10 am GMT+2. Afterward, the update should be available for download in the Test Flight and Google Play. There are lots of small fixes and improvements, a new high-level office, and one major gameplay change.

We decided to tone down the Ultimate Investigator a bit so that a single mistake doesn't necessarily mean another quarter of a year of effort.

Last but not least, we've also changed the reward for this achievement - players will now get all-new, very powerful upgrades for this achievement that are otherwise unattainable in the game. All players who have already completed one of these achievements can collect the rewards again and will receive the upgrades (but they will also keep the original rewards they collected before).

And because the new upgrades give permanent benefits, we have partially (to the extent we can tell from the data) set those permanent benefits for those who get them now as if they had already gotten the upgrades.

So, once again - we'll be experiencing approximately an hour of server downtime starting at 9 am on Thursday. And after that, you can get to work updating your game so you can enjoy your new reward!

S novou aktualizací přichází změny v achievementech i upgradech

22. May 2023

Vážené agentky a agenti,

právě v tuto chvíli finišují přípravy nové aktualizace. Ta si tentokrát vyžádá krátkou odstávku serverů, kterou jsme naplánovali na středu od 9 hodin. Následně by pak měla být aktualizace k dispozici ke stažení ve storech. V ní vás čeká spousta drobných oprav a vylepšení, nová kancelář pro vysoké úrovně, a především jedna větší herní změna.

Nejdříve nám ale dovolte poblahopřát téměř čtyřem stovkám z vás, kterým se podařilo splnit achievement Ultimátní vyšetřovatel. Vůle, odhodlání a pozornost, kterou to vyžadovalo, si zaslouží obdiv. Přestože pro další hráče (a především pro celosvětové vydání) achievement trochu zmírníme, aby jediná chyba nutně neznamenala dalšího čtvrt roku snahy, ve vašem seznamu achievementů bude navždy vidět, že jste to dali bez jediné chybičky (stejně jako u dalších, kteří to zvládnou podle původních podmínek). A naopak, těm, kteří podle původních krutých podmínek zaváhali, tím dáváme novou šanci, protože mírnější podmínky částečně promítneme i zpětně.

V neposlední řadě jsme změnili i odměnu za tento achievement - nově za něj hráči dostanou zcela nová velmi silná vylepšení, která jsou jinak ve hře nedosažitelná. Všichni, kdo již některý z těchto achievementů mají splněný, si mohou znovu vyzvednout odměny a uvedená vylepšení dostanou (zároveň jim ale zůstanou i původní odměny, které si vyzvedli dříve).

A protože nová vylepšení dávají trvalé výhody, tak jsme těm, kteří je dostanou až teď, částečně (do míry, do které to dokážeme z dat vyčíst) tyto trvalé výhody nastavili, jako by vylepšení získali už dříve.

Takže ještě jednou - ve středu od 9 hodin nás čeká přibližně hodinová odstávka serverů. A po ní se můžete pustit do aktualizování hry, abyste si mohli vychutnat svou zaslouženou odměnu!

Vlaada a CGE tým

New update improves server communication

9. May 2023

Hello world leaders,

We have prepared a new update for our beloved game. It's mainly a technical one. The update should improve using graphical filters on older devices and the communication between the game and our servers. We expect fewer inconsistency errors thanks to that. If you experience this problem again, please, let us know via e-mail or the Contact Support button.

We'd like to thank everyone who reported any problems in the past. We were able to locate the issues, thanks to you!

20. April 2023

EDIT: The server update takes us a bit longer than expected. Don't worry; we gave you enough extra time to reserve. Thanks for your patience, and sorry for the delay.

We have to schedule a short server downtime since 1.00 pm GMT+2 for maintenance. The downtime should take about 1 hour.

All players on their turn at that moment receive extra time, so they don't time out.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks for understanding.

Update is available

29. March 2023

Hello world leaders,

Did you already hear that? A new update of Through the Ages is available in stores! Why should you download it? First of all, we fixed a keyboard issue when the keyboard overlaps the input box. Suez Canal and Mary Theresa are also updated (she won’t give any stones to other players). Last but not least, the update delivers minor graphical improvements.

We’re aware of the fact that some of you experienced difficulties with server connections. We’d like to assure you that we know about it and we’re working on that hard. Until the problem is fixed, we increased your reserve in games. If you have any trouble with connection, please, let us know via digitaltesters@czechgames.com. Don’t forget to include as much information as possible - mainly about your device and region where you’re playing. Thank you! And sorry for some inconvenience.

How Maria Theresa changed

15. March 2023

You asked for more details about the ability of Maria Theresa, so here they are. First of all, her ability changed only in digital rules (so, if you’re playing with board game rules, nothing extra applied). So, how does her ability work when playing with digital rules? She’s giving you one or three rocks at the beginning of your action phase after all delayed triggers are resolved. That being said, you can move a military unit with Freedom of Movement and get more rocks in your action phase, because you become weaker, for example.

This change has been inquired by you, the community, and approved by Ancient Vlaada himself. We hope you like a newly polished leader of Austria, Hungary, Croatia, Bohemia, Transylvania, Mantua, Milan, Lodomeria and Galicia, the Austrian Netherlands, and Parma, the Duchess of Lorraine, Grand Duchess of Tuscany and Holy Roman Empress.

Download a new version

9. March 2023

Hello leaders,

As we constantly improve our beloved game, we prepared a new update for you. Today, we focused on some graphic improvements - since now text blurring is fixed, and the UI is better optimised for wider screens.

We also have good news for all users of Android 6 and 7. Crashes of the game on these devices are solved, so you can start building your civilisations again.

Last but not least, we double-checked bonus military actions. They are not counted in any scoring events anymore.

Thank all who reported bugs or inconsistency errors. You’re helping us make Through the Ages an even better game!

See you in the game!
CGE Team

New update is coming

13. February 2023

We prepared a new update of Through the Ages that should temporarily help you with inconsistency error messages. Now, you have the option to close the pop-up window and continue to play.

We still advise you to let us know when this error message appears and stop playing the particular game until we fix it. This solution is a hotfix that helps you a little bit. We’re currently working on solving the root of this issue.

We also tweak some aspects of the game, such as the leader card of Maria Theresa. Her ability should be better understood now.

We’d like to thank everyone who contacted us and let us know about any issues in the game. You’re helping us make our beloved game even better.

Sincerely,
CGE Team

Server update

17. January 2023

Dear truckers,

Update of our servers is scheduled to Wednesday between 9.30 to 10.30 am CET. In that time, it won’t be possible to play reliably. We strongly recommend you not playing fast games.

To make sure that the update will not disrupt your game, all sessions will get a time bonus.

Thank you for playing!
CGE Team

New update is out now!

12. January 2023

Dear leaders,

We have prepared a new update of our beloved Through the Ages. This update solves some well-known issues, such as problems with Fleming and Coubertin cards.

Unfortunately, we had to increase the version of the server as well. We wanted to avoid it as long as possible because we knew that it could mean some issues for players in certain regions. But we also want to continue the game's development in the future, so we decided it’s time to do that, even when it means you won’t be able to play online games until you install the update.

We thank all of you who have reported any issues or bugs to us. You’ve helped us improve the game experience for the whole community. Thank you!

Best regards,
CGE Team

The board game expansion "Keep on Trucking" in the USA

22. December 2022

Do you laugh at pirates, shrug off combat zones, and meet every meteor with cannons blazing? If you've mastered the basics of Galaxy Trucker, then you're ready for this expansion – getting into North American FLGS and also Amazon as we speak!

With the Keep on Trucking expansion, your flight through the stars becomes more chaotic and more fun thanks to tons of new content:

  • New space ship components give players new tactical options.
  • New cyan aliens can bring each space ship a unique ability.
  • Rough Roads cards allow players to increase the difficulty level.
  • New space ship types shake up the standard building strategies.

  • A new update improves connectivity

    17. October 2022

    Hey leaders, Through the Ages has been updated. We improved the connectivity and stability of the game as well as the layout for new phones and tablets, including the new iPhone 14 family or devices with non-standard dimensions. We also fixed some known bugs related to some cards and events. The complete list of changes can be found in the stores.

    We hope the update improves your gaming experience. Have fun!

    World Championship 2021 knows the winners!!!

    15. September 2022

    Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the winner of the first official World Championship tournament in Through the Ages, mister Ender_Wiggin!

    The tournament had 625 players who fought through 4 group stages and single elimination for the top 16. The first match started on 15th November 2021, so it took almost a year until the great finale, in which Ender_Wiggin clashed with another world-class player LaoHuang. The third place belongs to SandHippo who defeated Weida in the fight for third place.

    All the winners can look forward to their CGE Mystery package. And to commemorate the glorious victories, their names are forever written in the Hall of Fame. You can find it as a new tab in Through the Ages Leaderboards.

    Do you want to know what it means to be one of the best TTA players in the world? Or are you looking for some tips and tricks that can help you improve your tactics? Read the interview with the winner Ender_Wiggin available on BoardGameGeek. And who knows, maybe your name will be alongside Ender_Wiggin and others in the upcoming championships.

    Through the Ages now speaks Dutch!

    Through the Ages 3rd Birthday

    14. September 2020

    Today is a big day for us, and we have three triple reasons to celebrate! This day marks three years from the release of our Through the Ages app, it is about one year since those three new leaders appeared in your app inviting you to New Leaders and Wonders expansion, and we have finished three nice new bigger features for the app. (It is also Vlaada’s birthday, but that’s pure coincidence and there is no three in his age anyway :)).

    The new features are still being tested, but we will reveal one of them for you now. Some AI players who love to play Through the Ages asked us whether it would be possible to join also your Online and Pass and Play games. You know, until now, they had to wait until someone times out. We gladly agreed and taught them how to join your games if you invite them. You may expect an update soon.

    Huge thanks to all of you for your constant support! We couldn’t be more thankful for our amazing community.

    Yours,

    CGE Team

    Win rate fix and Average Result statistic

    3. September 2020

    Dear players,

    we have fixed win rate computing - abandoning or timing out in a game now correctly counts as a loss (as it is written when you are abandoning a game). Big thanks to the community for pointing this out.

    Also, the win rate now counts separately for 2-player, 3-player, and 4-player games. To better represent your overall success, we have added a new statistic that we call Average Result; it takes into account the number of players and your final order in each game. You can find these statistics in your CGE Account.

    Have fun with the game and stay tuned - we are preparing some really cool features in the near future for you!

    Yours, CGE Team

    New Leaders and Wonders celebration with designer’s notes from Vlaada Chvátil

    13. May 2020

    Dear players,

    The digital expansion for Through the Ages, New Leaders and Wonders, has been out for a couple of months, however, due to a printing error, the release of its physical counterpart was unfortunately delayed. For the past few weeks, we've been shipping the expansion boxes all over Europe where retailers began to offer it to their customers – and today, the expansion is officially released in North America as well!

    To celebrate the release, we would like to share with you some behind-the-scenes notes from the designer of the game, Vlaada Chvátil.

    Have you ever wondered how the original set of personalities and wonders was picked for the game? Do you want to know more about the real-life stories of the game leaders, or what their abilities represent? Or would you like to read more behind-the-scenes details about the game’s design? We have good news for you!

    On our CGE Blog you can now find an introduction to what will be a longer series of designer's notes about how Through the Ages came to life. We will release these notes regularly in the following weeks – if you don't want to miss any update, you can subscribe to an RSS feed for the blog or follow our Facebook page.

    We thank you for being here with us and wish you many more hours of civilization-building!

    First of all, we'd like to say we are really happy with how much you enjoy Letter Jam and how you help spread the word to your friends. Thanks to you, Letter Jam jumped among our best selling games, being second only to Codenames! It is a nice and humbling surprise and we are doing our best to make the experience with the game and the gadget even better.

    This app update adds four new languages – French, Italian, Polish, and Spanish. The Spanish version of the board game still has to hit the shelves, but the app can already generate Spanish words for you if you use cards from any other language version. More languages are coming soon. Stay tuned!

    Thank you for playing – stay safe and game on!

    Global Sales for a Global Problem

    20. March 2020

    Dear players,

    We hope that in these harsh times, when it is not responsible or safe to meet up for board game events, you are enjoying playing online. If you were considering getting Through the Ages on another platform, trying also our Galaxy Trucker app, or convincing a friend to join you in this game, now it is a good time.

    Starting today, both Through the Ages and Galaxy Trucker digital games are available for half of their original price on all platforms.

    We were considering to give the apps for free, but in the end, we decided on a different approach. All our proceeds coming from those app sales will be donated to COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. This way, you can have fun and help at the same time.

    So, have fun, and enjoy the fact there is no Pandemy event in Through the Ages!

    Yours,

    CGE team

    Halloween mission is back!

    31. October 2019

    Hold on, trucker.

    Did you hear that? Huh, I guess it was just some rocks along the way. They say this ship is haunted, you know. Methinks it's because of all the toxic cargo we're hauling in the holds. Keep your wits about you, trucker, and ignore the howling coming from the ship. It's definitely not ghosts, don't be silly! Ghosts don't exist, of course.

    Just keep on truckin' and watch out for those abandoned ships littering the empty space in our traditional Halloween mission! Don't get caught in a fight between the other kids trying to get more treats than you!

    New macOS does not support Through the Ages and Galaxy Trucker

    8. October 2019

    Dear Mac players,

    A few hours ago, Apple released a new version of macOS titled Catalina. Unfortunately, our apps Through the Ages and Galaxy Trucker do not yet run on this OS version, as Catalina does not support 32-bit apps and our games have not yet been updated to 64-bit. Please note, that if you update your macOS to 10.15 Catalina, you won’t be able to enjoy Through the Ages.

    We have been working on upgrading our games to 64-bit for several weeks now, but considering the way our system is built and with a limited amount of personnel we can dedicate to this process, it will take us some more time to properly implement and test the 64-bit versions, as this upgrade is a bigger undertaking and means rewriting big parts of the code. We plan on starting internal testing this month and hope to release the update by the end of November – please, bear with us :) We will bring you more info as soon as we know more.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause and are grateful for your patience!

    New Leaders and Wonders Expansion Released!

    12. September 2019

    The New Leaders and Wonders expansion is finally out on Google Play, Steam, and for the first time also on GOG.com. The expansion is sold at a price of $4.99 and once purchased, you can play it on any platform on which you have the base game installed. Also, if you don‘t have the base game yet, it‘s on sale now and until September 19!

    We would like to apologize to our iOS players – the review seems to take longer than expected and we do not want to delay the expansion release any longer. Unfortunately, this means that our iOS players won‘t be able to play online until the expansion is out on the App Store – we are sincerely sorry for this inconvenience and rest assured we will release the game as soon as it is approved on the store. We will of course pause your online games to avoid timeouts.

    New Leaders and Wonders is a very personal project for us, and we worked on it with a lot of love and care. Yet, we wouldn‘t be able to polish it to this degree without the help from the heroes from our extensive beta testing community. We are grateful for all their help.

    We hope you will enjoy playing the game as much as we enjoyed developing it, and maybe we‘ll meet one day in an online game :)

    Yours sincerely,

    CGE team

    New Leaders Almost Here!

    12. September 2019

    Don‘t worry TTA players, we have not forgotten about you! New Leaders and Wonders expansion is ready to come out any moment now. We are still waiting for the last game store to review the app, and we‘ll be able to launch the expansion simultaneously on all platforms.

    If we launched the game before it‘s approved by App Store, our iOS players would not be able to play any online games - we need to upgrade all our servers to the newest version. So we ask you to please hang in there, the expansion will be released as soon as possible!

    New Leaders and Wonders Pre-order Package

    11. September 2019

    Our team makes the last hours before the release count, by double-checking and fine-tuning everything, carefully looking for any forgotten bugs. Only one more day remaining! Are you excited? Because we are :)

    In the meantime, we have two great news for you! The first is for those of you, who bought the base game on different digital platforms – after purchase, your expansion will be tied to your CGE online account, so you can just buy it on one platform and unlock it for all. No need to buy it multiple times!

    Secondly, we have prepared a special pre-order package for those, who enjoy playing TTA in both digital and physical form!

    This package is distributed through some brick and mortar stores – each player who pre-orders the printed expansion from the participating game stores will get a special coupon that will include a universal code for the digital version of the expansion for free!

    If your friendly local game store doesn‘t offer this package, you can ask them to order it for you from their distributors. Also, remember to keep that coupon because once the printed expansion is out, you will exchange it for the copy you‘ve pre-ordered.

    With all this combined, our expansion will be really multi-platform :)

    For more info about the expansion and pre-orders, go to our FAQ page HERE and stay tuned for more news!

    The New Leaders & Wonders Expansion Announcement!

    29. July 2019

    The long wait is over! After months of development, careful balancing, and intensive testing, we are proud to announce that the expansion for Through the Ages, titled New Leaders & Wonders, will come out this fall – digitally on September 12, 2019!

    The expansion will bring to play new courageous and inspiring leaders, more great wonders, and clever military cards and tactics. It will come to all current TTA platforms (via Google Play, App Store, and Steam) and will cost $4.99. For those of you playing the physical board game as well, don‘t worry – the board game expansion will come out two months later, with recommended retail cost of $24.95.

    New Leaders & Wonders has been a very personal project for our team and we‘ve dedicated our minds and hearts to it fully – still, we wouldn‘t be able to polish it this well without our devoted testers who joined our beta testing some time ago, and to whom we would now like to send our huge thanks. We‘re grateful for you and for the whole amazing community that developed around the game and we can‘t wait to share the expansion with you!

    You can also watch the expansion trailer here!

    All the best and stay tuned for more news and previews!

    Galaxy Trucker Finally Lands on Steam!

    7. March 2019

    Great news, Truckers – our shuttles have successfully landed on Steam, and our brave space explorers have already started colonizing computers all over this new strange land. To support these colonization efforts, we‘ve set up a 38% discount that will last until 14 March.

    Old players – expect newbies. Be nice to them. And feel free to challenge them online in our Welcome New Players event, which will grant you extra experience for playing against new truckers (provided you start any game or mission before the end of March and at least one of the players has level 1–5).

    Discover a new wider Galaxy here! Enjoy Galaxy Trucker on a bigger screen of your Mac or Windows :)

    Galaxy Trucker: Extended Edition already includes the Alien Technologies expansion and supports cross-platform multiplayer.

    Great Network War

    31. January 2019

    Dear Players,

    As many of you have noticed and experienced, in the past few weeks we‘ve been dealing with some server issues. While single player has ran smoothly, online games have been crashing and acting up. Thank you for all the feedback, crash reports and emails, it helped a lot to identify the problems!

    We were concentrating heavily on locating and fixing the issue (actually, rather multiple issues that combined together, as we learned later). But we also feel that we owe some explanation to our devoted players. So, if you want to know more, please continue reading HERE. If not, just be assured that we do our best, and now it seems the worst problems are fixed, so the games will hopefully run smoothly again – actually, perhaps even smoother than before :)

    Thank you greatly for all your support and patience.

    Yours,

    CGE Team

    First Anniversary of Through the Ages app

    14. September 2018

    Thank you all for the marvelous year you have spent with us playing Through the Ages. Over the course of almost 160,000 finished online games, you have generated over 46.5 millions of the culture points - that‘s a remarkable trace through this virtual world‘s history.

    That‘s not even including the massive amount of single-player games you‘ve played! 40,767 brave leaders conquered at least one challenge and 689 mastered all of them. The 35 most devoted heroes have gathered every achievement the game offers!

    Regardless if you play online or not, you all took part in the game‘s history and you deserve to know how grateful we are, and that seeing you enjoy the game makes us so happy.

    On top of that, exciting updates are being worked on (a big one is coming soon) and early next year, we will release a brand new expansion with new leaders and wonders.

    Wish us luck, stay tuned, and stay as great as you are!

    Rank Filter in Online Lobby

    16. April 2018

    Dear players,

    we are amazed how well the game performs on Steam. With lots of new players, though, we realize we should add some filtering to the online lobby. Before we prepare better solution in future updates, you may use this trick:

    • If the name of your game ends with 20+, only players with rank 20 or higher will see it.
    • If it ends with 25-, only players with rank 25 and less will see it.
    • And if it ends with 10-30 (no spaces), only players between these ranks will see it.
    The name may contain anything before this filtering, e.g. "Newbies welcome 23-" will work.

    We are preparing more improvements for multiplayer game.

    Stay tuned!

    Through the Ages enters Age of Steam

    26. March 2018

    Starting today you can play Through the Ages on the wide screen at Steam for Mac and PC, with a special first-week price of $9.99.

    And it also means lots of new players for multiplayer! Be nice to them during their first games :)

    We wish you a Happy Galactic Trucking!

    Let's celebrate the World Toilet Day!

    18. November 2017

    November 19th is the World Toilet Day. As we truckers know, sewer pipes are the foundations of the civilized world and they also hold our spaceships together. So, such an important date is a good opportunity for a small celebration.

    Each player will get twice as much experience for each online game or mission that has begun on November 19th!

    As always, see you in the lobby!

    Thanks for playing

    3. November 2017

    More than 12 000 registered players have already finished over 20 000 online games! That's a fantastic result. Thank you all for playing!

    The first weeks were not without glitches and we had to work hard to improve stability of our servers. We've received enough bug reports to be able to lock and analyse several hundred corrupted games. Bugs that caused these problems are fixed now. Thanks everyone!

    Locked games will be deleted, we implemented tools that will enable us to repair problematic games in the future, but it is not possible now.

    Thank you for your understanding and continuous support!

    Ať vás síla provází!

    Multiplayer missions variation

    22. August 2015

    We know you have a blast with Multiplayer Missions! We are playing them with you, too, and we have heard from you, there's just so much good stuff appearing quite quickly to enjoy all of it, especially in the turn-based games, where you can play various missions at once.

    We have decided that new missions will now appear every three days instead of just two days, so you have more time to enjoy it and find the best tactics.

    Also, the most popular missions will be appearing again, some of them with slight variations of rules or rewards. It's like seeing old friends... and pirates... and aliens... :)

    Note for Achievement hunters - if the same mission repeats, it counts as a different mission for Mission Specialist achievements.

    New languages

    7. August 2015

    Galaxy Truckers now speak spanish, french and polish! Hurray!

    Plus, we fixed some more bugs. Hurray again!

    Multiplayer Missions are here!

    14. July 2015

    Each missions had its own rules, offering new possibilities of how to play the game. And do you remember those fantastic explosive, radioactive, heavy and fragile cargo components from campaign? - Now you can play with them in multiplayer with your friends!

    Every 2 days, there will be new challenging mission ready for you to explore! Some missions just slightly alter the rules, but some really test your abilities - you have to take risks, face massive destruction and invent new approach for every mission.

    Start a new mission by tapping the New Mission button in the online lobby, or join one. Don't forget to read the mission rules! :) And show other truckers who is the best, most adaptive trucker in this part of the universe!

    WELCOME THE WINDOWS PHONE PLAYERS

    3. April 2015

    Today, Galaxy Trucker has also launched on Windows Phone. Yeah, that means... fresh meat in multiplayer! Give a warm welcome to all the new players:

    Any game started from now until the end of April will grant you twice as much experience, as long as at least one player of rank 1-5 is included.

    PŘIVÍTEJTE HRÁČE NA WINDOWS PHONE

    3. April 2015

    Dnes byl Galaxy Trucker vydán také pro Windows Phone! Víte, co to znamená - čerstvá krev do multiplayeru. Hezky přivítejme nové hráče:

    Za jakoukoliv multiplayerovou hru započatou odteď až do konce dubna, a ve které je aspoň jeden hráč úrovně 1 až 5, získají všichni dvojnásobek zkušenosti!

    UPDATE Z ÚNORA 2015

    11. February 2015

    Dobrá zpráva: hráči na iPhone už mohou hrát bezpečně multiplayer s hráči na iPadu a androidích zařízeních!

    Omlouváme se, že to trvalo déle, ale narazili jsme na další chyby, které se skrývaly ve spletitých trubkách multiplayerových lodí. Některé byly obzvláště zákeřné a záludné, ale náš tým je v minulých týdnech nemilosrdně pronásledoval a likvidoval - věříme, že úspěšně. Omlouváme se, pokud vám tyto zlé chyby zničily nějakou hru. Většina rozehraných her a všechny nové už by nyní měly být v pořádku.

    Také jsme opravili nějaké drobné chybky, vylepšili chování multiplayer lobby a vůbec - galaxie by teď měla být hezčí a šťastnější místo pro závodění.

    Nová fíčura: V tahových hrách se teď můžete podívat na karty, které znáte, i během letu.

    Je to tak - my také hrajeme truckera, a je nám jasné, že především v asynchronních hrách je nemožné zapamatovat si karty, které jste viděli, a tak nelze podle těchto informací postupovat při rozhodování během letu. Až do teď. Nyní můžete během letu ťapnutím na ikonku oka vedle hromádky karet zjistit které z karet, které jste viděli, ještě nešly.

    Pozn: Toto se netýká realtime her. Během realtime stavění je dívání se na karty součástí stresu - je na každém, zda ztrácí čas pokusem karty si zapamatovat, zda se na ně jen rychle mrkne, nebo zda je ignoruje úplně. A realtime hry se stejně nehrají asynchronně.

    FEBRUARY 2015 UPDATE

    11. February 2015

    Good news: iPhone players can safely play real-time games with iPad and Android players now. Yay!

    We apologize it took us this long; there were some other space bugs crawling the pipes of multiplayer ships. Some of them were really sneaky and malicious, but our heroic team hunted them relentlessly over the past weeks, and we believe the fight was victorious. We apologize if these bugs chewed up some of your games. Most of the games in progress and all the new games should be safe now.

    There were also some other minor bug fixes, the multiplayer lobby performance was improved, and generally, the galaxy should be a sunnier and happier place to go trucking.

    A new feature: In turn based games, it is now possible to take a look at the known cards, even during the flight.

    That's right! We play Galaxy Trucker too, and we know that especially in asynchronous games, it is impossible to remember the cards you have seen and thus you cannot use this knowledge to make the right decisions during the flight. Not anymore! Tap the eye icon next to the cards pile during the flight to check what cards you have seen are still remaining in the deck!

    Note: This does not apply for real-time games. In real-time building, looking at cards is part of the stress - it is up to you to decide whether to spend your time trying to memorize them, or just to peek at them, or ignore them completely. And real-time games are not played asynchronously anyway.
