CO2, 1-5 players, 12+ 120 mins

In the 1970s, the governments of the world faced unprecedented demand for energy, and polluting power plants were built everywhere in order to meet that demand.

Now, the impact of this pollution has become too great, and humanity is starting to realize that we must meet our energy demands through clean sources of energy. Companies with expertise in clean, sustainable energy are called in to propose projects that will provide the required energy without polluting the environment. Regional governments are eager to fund these projects, and to invest in their implementation.

Along with Century Spice Road, Century Eastern Wonders is can also be added to this list of games. Century Eastern Wonders can be played as an expansion to Spice Road as well as a stand alone.

Imhotep, 2-4 players, 40 mins, 10+

Over six rounds, players in Imhotep move wooden stones by boat to create five seminal Egyptian monuments, and on a turn, a player chooses one of four actions: Procure new stones, load stones on a boat, bring a boat to a monument, or play an action card. While this sounds easy, naturally the other players constantly thwart your building plans by carrying out plans of their own. Only those with the best timing — and the stones to back up their plans — will prove to be Egypt’s best builder.
