Age of Mythology comes highly recommended for players wanting to make a small leap from lighter fare into deeper games, as the level of complexity is pitched at just the right level to be understood and appreciated even by novice gamers, but it is also deep and involving enough even for those who are more experienced. A quality game that, despite not really having the feel of an RTS, definitely feels like an excellent board game - and fortunately it isn't a game that is hugely dependent on combat, so the potentially devastating effect of the cumbersome combat system doesn't hurt it too much.
