Designed by Alexander Pfister (Port Royal, Isle of Skye, and the 2015 Kennerspiel des Jahres nominated Broom Service),Mombasa is a strategy game set in 18th Century Africa during the time of global colonization. Players are European traders acquiring shares of companies based in Mombasa, Saint-Louis, Cape Town and Cairo. As players acquire goods from their plantations, they acquire more company shares, but the value of each company is only as good as its sphere of influence. Player must expand into new territories to grow the company. The game features a unique rotating-display hand-mechanism that drives game play. Players will start with identical hands of cards, and must use strategy to acquire new and more powerful cards from the rotating display throughout the game.
Rome: City of Marble is a tile-laying game where players assume the role of powerful Patrician families competing to be named Architect of Rome. Players use their influence to direct construction of civic buildings, temples, baths, theaters and arenas to their neighborhoods, which gains them Imperium (the real measure of power in Roman society). Players also score bonus points for building bridges, aqueducts, and fountains, as well as acuminating wealth.
