About the event
Unboxing Thursdays we open, learn, and play games as we add them to our library.
This Thursday we are playing and learning Brick + Mortar, & Paris New Eden.
Brick & Mortar: 7.5
Brick & Mortar is a competitive game of narrow margins, quirky stores, and strategic market manipulation. Over a series of rounds, two to four players manage a collection of stores trying to maximize profits, build equity, and undercut the competition amid a fickle market that can change at the whim of their opponents.
Each round, players simultaneously determine the market, speculate on resources, sell what they can, invest in victory points, and manage their storefronts. Each new store in a player’s building provides unique benefits and restrictions. In the end, the player with the greatest investment in both stores and points wins!
Paris: New Eden: 6.8
The dazzling boulevards and historical monuments of Paris have been enveloped by lush vegetation. The once bustling city hub has been hushed to stillness following an apocalyptic event and your goal is to forge a new future. Equip your shelter, manage your resources, and rally a community of various survivors, all while making your way through the jungle cityscape.
Paris: New Eden features a clever dice-drafting mechanism that allows you to recruit survivors. Over the span of one year, you will endeavor to build your shelter and overcome the array of obstacles that you encounter along the way. The dice allow you to recruit survivors of different types: tinkerers, brawlers, healers, sages, farmers, jacks-of-all-trades, or even useless survivors. At the end of each season, your survivors allow you to bid to improve your shelter. These survivors are recruited in five key areas and central squares of the Paris that we know, each one with different abilities:
The train station, which lets you grow your community faster The restaurant, to collect food to feed your community The tower, to choose the goals you can fulfill The center, which gives you access to special equipment The bridge, to gain access to new missions
Players score points by recruiting survivors and feeding them, by fulfilling objectives from the tower, and by completing secret missions acquired at the bridge. At winter’s end, the player who has accumulated the most victory points wins. The future of Paris is in your hands!
