It’s 18th century Lancashire, and cotton is the dominant export. But it’s the dawn of the Canal Age which will set the stage for the Industrial Revolution, making engineering and coal mining ever more important. In Brass, your goal as a British industrialist is to build cotton mills, coal mines, iron works, canals, railways, ports, and shipyards and shape them into the most profitable investments, and to snatch opportunities from under your opponents’ noses.
The game is divided into two phases: the Canal phase and the Rail phase. At the beginning of each phase, players are dealt cards that represent various cities and industries. On each turn, you’ll build industries, establish trade routes, sell cotton, or take out a loan. Turn order is determined by how much money each player spent during his previous turn — adding an interesting strategic component to gameplay. You’ll need to balance supply and demand, which will change at various stages of the game.
Playing time is about two hours, and the game requires three to four players.
