Quick Takes: 1-4 players 60-120 minutes Age 12+ (slightly more complex or takes longer than the classics we all think of)
Smiling, you stand in the center of your factory: the sweet sounds of metal clattering and engines rattling are warming your entrepreneurial heart. Your goal is to build diversified scoring and production engines in order to outrival the other factory owners. However, in the steam-filled air, your biggest enemy is time, because most machines and gears rust away quickly. So you are well advised to also produce rustproof chrome gears and invest in powerful chrome machines.
In Corrosion, you play as a group of engineers in a factory who make machines by gathering resources like gears and steam. Put the machines and gears to clever use before your corrosion wheel is turned and your parts rust away! This works a bit like Whistle Mountain where you build a temporary engine to secure your victory. (Need to brush up on engine builders? Read our primer.)
- What a cool theme! Especially if you're a bit of a gearhead like Annie or an engineer like our Warehouse Bear.
- The game has a solo mode for all of your socially distanced gaming needs.
