About the Game:

The Industrial Revolution has begun! In Brass: Birmingham, build facilities, supply them with resources, and link them. Produce products and sell them on the market for a tidy profit. Use other player's connections for your own advantage and supply scarce resources for huge profits. This adds a rare level of borderline cooperative player interaction to an economy builder.

The original Brass was released in 2007 and is revered for its strategic depth. This game, Brass: Birmingham, is the new and sexy version of Brass. The art is fantastic, the rules are denser, there are more products and industries, and the destination of goods is scrambled each game. Overall, the best things about Brass, the strategic depth and player interaction, have gotten even better, and the worst thing about Brass, the claustrophobic lack of choice, has been replaced with continual meaningful choices. That is a great combination!

Why we chose this game for Board’s Edge:
  • Brass is a foundational game for the hobby, but it has not aged well. There are a lot more accessible games with less fiddly bits. Brass: Birmingham provides everything that the original game lacked, and built on what made it a classic in the first place.
  • Unparalleled strategic depth with continual meaningful choices.
  • Lots of player interaction - competitive game that depends on other players' choices.
  • Components make sense. Textured design reserves plastic bits for the most important resources, so you can tell at a glance what the state of the board is.
