Century: Spice Road will be the first in a trilogy of related games, created by Emerson Matsuuchi (Specter Ops, VOLT: Robot Battle Arena). All three games in the Century Trilogy will explore commerce and trade through history, using hand-management and deck-building style game mechanics. Spice Road focuses on the spice trade across Asia and the Middle East during the 15th Century.
The game includes 94 cards, 105 wooden cubes, 4 plastic spice bowls, and 20 gold and silver tokens, and features artwork by Fernanda Suarez (Dead of Winter

All games in the series will be playable as stand-alone games, or as fully-compatible expansions for each other. Plan B intends to release one game every year in 2017, 2018, and 2019. The other two games in the trilogy are tentatively titled Century: Wonders of the East
and Century: A New World.
