A fantasy version of Emerson Matsuuchi’s hit board game Century:  Spice Road has been available only direct from Plan B Games.  In Q2, the company will offer Century:  Golem Edition to retailers as well.

Originally premiered at Gen Con last year, Century:  Golem Edition is a conversion of Century:  Spice Road (see “First Title From Plan B Games”), and uses the same mechanics as the original game.  But the theme has been changed to a fantasy world populated by ancient golems, patiently waiting to be awoken by the proper combination of mystical crystals.  The players, acting as crystal traders, must build a trade network that allows them to deliver the right crystals to the right golems.

Century:  Golem Edition features all-new artwork and components that are completely different from those in the Spice Road version, including 105 plastic crystals and 4 plastic crystal bowls, 104 cards, and 20 copper and silver tokens.  MSRP is $39.99.  Plan B intends to offer the game in North America, Europe, and Japan.

Later this year, the company will release Century:  Eastern Wonders, the second game in Matsuuchi’s planned trilogy (see “Plan B Returns to ‘Century’ in ‘Eastern Wonders’”).
