Brass In August
Back in Stock in August!
$ 59.99 SRP
Welcome to Lancashire,
England in the
18th Century. The world is about to change from Medieval to Modern. This change
will be called the Industrial Revolution. Can you take advantage of this transformation?
What’s the best strategy? Build cotton mills? Develop new technologies?
Dig canals? Produce coal, or maybe steel? There is no simple answer and the
opportunities that arise will be different in each game you play as you move
through the Canal and Railway periods, striving to get the best return you can
from your investments – hopefully just in time to snatch the next
opportunity from under the noses of your rivals. Brass is a logistical game
where you make money to make more money. However, you also need to make certain
the industries you’re creating are sustainable, which makes Brass unique
and endlessly fascinating. Game Components:. Beautifully Illustrated 6-panel
Game Board. 4 Counter Sheets. 8 Player Wooden Disks. 66 Cards. 30 Black Coal
Cubes. 25 Orange Iron Cubes. 1 Black Marker.
