Weeks on board the ship have taken their toll on me; I haven’t been this light since I was a boy and I can barely stand up even now that we’re on solid land again. Despite that, the view from this beach is amazing; I never imagined anyplace could as wonderful or wild as this new world. Our journey inland begins tomorrow and all of my men are showing their nerves tonight; my hope is good rest will grant us the strength to make our claim and return home someday soon…
In Old World New World, from designer Aaron Smith, you take command of explorers trying to find their destiny in a recently discovered land. The map is revealed as you play against up to three opponents, with each of you trying to shape the land to best benefit your own side. With player controlled events such as Barbarians, Tornados, and Bribery, no plan goes unhindered and anyone could find themselves mapping their own destiny!
Perfect for both new and experienced gamers, Old World New World has a great mix of simple mechanics and a variety of options that will keep you on your toes no matter how many times you play it.
