OMG I didn't figured out this is just a real clock.
Don't feel bad, my first AGEOD game was Pride of Nations
and the damn clock in PON drove me nuts for quite some time. Surely it could not be as simple as being a real-time time piece and something so profoundly useful just had
to have some deeper, game-related utility. But no, it's just a clock...
The Roman numerals on the AJE clock are a nice touch and I actually miss this feature when playing TYW.
