If you like the steampunk genre and fancy giving your creativity a test, then you are going to love Scrapyard Empire by Galliant Games. This is a really cool card game with dice and minis that can be played by 1-4 people, revolving around successfully building 2 inventions- and it’s available on Kickstarter right now. Players must dig through the scrapyard (deck) to find pieces to use to construct your machines. You can can draw cards, trade, dig through scrap pile or steal from your opponents. Dice rolling offers a fun element of chance to foil even the most solid plans.
The art work in this game is really fun and sets the tone nicely for tapping into your creative, steampunk genius. If you get the deluxe version of the game, it comes with really fun minis to supply some inspiration for your creativity and represent the items you build in the game.
You can play a solo game in 10-15 minutes and you can play a game with friends in about 30-60 minutes. Either way, you are in for a great game! I am partial to the games that give you the ability to also play solo, given those instances where others don’t have the time to get a game in with you. Options are always good!
