Essen 2013 Glass Road

Posted on by Jesta

An Uwe Rosenburg game.

You get point by building buildings onto your tableau using resources you have collected.

You collect resources by choosing 1 of 5 cards you select from a deck if 15. You reveal the card and take the two actions printed on it. If a player also has this card in their hand, you both take 1 action each.

I loved this part.


Resources are hard to explain. You have 2 dials on tracks with a token to represent each resource.

When you spend or gain a resource you move the token around the dial.

The dial always moves clockwise across empty spaces so at least 1 resource in each disk will be at 0.

The flip side to this is on each dial on the other side if the main track is another track that counts a rare resource in reverse. So as the wheel reduces the number of common resources as it moves, you gain Glass and Brick.

I really enjoyed this.
