Having never heard of this game until yesterday I was pleasantly surprised by it. Collectively you and other players are trying to save a fragile economy, individually you are trying to be the best at saving it.Placing workers gets the usual type of things like resources or income, but nothing is ever free, coming at a cost of points or cash or both. To get the "free" stuff you'll have to buy buildings such as farms, power plants and resorts that will generate resources. To make these engines run though you're going to need employees, the better they are, the more efficiently your engine will run.The goal all of this is to meet a market demand for types of resources, which become more exotic (and more complicated to produce) as the game goes on, which your will sell for cash and points.Every round, of which there are seven, there is a target score to hit. Every player that beats the target, helps the economy, every one below it, drags you closer to financial collapse, which can result in everyone losing.The puzzle is working out how best to complete all the steps you require to meet the demand that is arriving in the next few turns. It feels like there are multiple paths to victory here and I look forward to playing it again to try some of them out.
