If you’re looking for another board game then how about this exciting new project from Fantasy Flight Games. See what you think of their steampunk looking post-apocalyptic game, Gearworld: The Borderlands…
“In days before, the gears still turned and the old machines still worked. The sky was clear and blue, and life flourished. Then noxious clouds came and choked the air. Smoke blanketed the sky. Some people departed in flying cities, ascending above the clouds to the World Above. Others dug deep beneath the ground, vanishing into the World Below. Meanwhile, those in the Borderlands watched the world grow dark as the gears ground to a halt.”
Once again this is a re-imagining of a previous game with Fantasy Flight saying they have streamlined the experience. Two to four players will be negotiating, conquering and building to earn the favour of the Sky People!
It sounds like a fantastic game with an awesome aesthetic. Everyone loves a bit of world building and considering the way in which you must gain access to resources this should change with each group of people you play alongside.
