What is the New Earth !?
‘New Earth is a strategy game for 2-4 players with elegant game mechanics combining worker placement with hand and territory management.’
This game has it a little bit of everything you could want in a well designed strategy board game.
Set in the titular New Earth; The last surviving continent on Earth after a cataclysmic event, each player controls a different ‘proto-nation’ and their aim is to make their new ‘country’ the greatest in the New Earth by building up their civilization. Be careful though, as even more catastrophes may strike during the game…
New Earth – The Board Game
Nicolas J Higgins, 2-4 Players, A worker placement game combining territory and hand management
Do you want to Rule the New Earth!?
New Earth looks like a very interesting game with lots of resources to manage. Perfect for a worker placement game! As well as the standard task of using your workers to gain resources to spend on getting more workers there is also your hand of cards and control of the territory zones.
By expanding your new country’s political reach you can claim more zones and sustain a greater population, allowing you to build bigger better infrastructure and improve your zones into cities to calim dominion over New Earth and victory.
You have to be careful though, as every turn a new catastrophe can strike and if you don’t have the cards ready to defend against it then it could be devastating for your population.
This looks like a superbly well designed game with a lot of interesting moving parts. We’re really excited about it and think you should take a look too!
