In Orconomics 2E, players assume the roles of orc entrepreneurs as they battle to establish companies in 10 sectors of orc industry. It is an area control game with worker placement and bidding mechanics in which players try to use their influence to generate income and gain special abilities. Each game features a different board set up because the board is assembled at random, thus adding to the game's replayability. To win, a player needs to be the first to found 10 companies on the game board in combination with successfully completing a number business quests of Greed, Rage or Dare. The quests added as a win condition is the primary new feature of the 2E version along with new start up mechanics and influence cards.
This game is for two to five players, ages 10 and up, and plays in 60 minutes. Thus far, there has been no word on MSRP.
Ares Games also announced Successors 4E, a strategy game by Phalanx Games, for release in 2021 (see "Claim Alexander the Great's Throne in 'Successors 4E'").
