Quick Takes: 1-4 players 60-100 minutes Ages 10+ Level 2 (a great mid-weight game for gamers looking to explore beyond the classics)About the game:
What lies behind the clouds?
Fifteen years ago, the mysterious secret society “Cloud” sabotaged countless oil production sites to destabilize the world. The resulting environmental catastrophe had disastrous effects on the entire planet. Now, years later, you travel above the dried-out landscape in your airships, searching for a better life. You visit cities, send out drones to collect resources, and battle Cloud militia. The campaign system makes it easy to start playing quickly, with new elements being introduced into the game as players progress through the chapters. While you play, you also experience and help guide the story in this innovative mix of engine-building, deck-building, and resource management.
We are a sucker for Pfister games, but they are hard. What is great about CloudAge is that it uses a lot of the same themes and mechanics from Maracaibo and some of Pfister's other games, but it is a much more approachable game for mid-weight gamers. Ready to try something a little harder than new classics like Carcassonne or Catan? This one might be perfect for you! It's also a great introduction to campaign games!Why we chose this game for Board's Edge:
- All the buzz - game co-designer Alexander Pfister has won awards for previous games, including one of our favorites, Maracaibo!
- Great for the advanced gamer looking for the next adventure - or for a mid-weight gamer who is curious about campaign games
