Res Publica: 2230 AD

Project image

Res Publica: 2230AD is an update to Reiner Knizia’s classic set in the future, where races migrate through Space searching for new areas in which to settle. Intensive trading brings together strong Races, encourages new settlements and promotes the development of civilization. Each turn is divided in three different phases: Trade, Display and Draw cards. Each player at his turn can make a trade offer and each player in turn responds in kind. Using the cards through trading and drawing players work to acquire five identical race cards in order to build a Space Station (which increases the number of cards you can draw each turn) or five identical technology cards in order to build a City (which gives Victory Points). See Res Publica 2230AD on Kickstarter now and reserve your copy for just $20.

Designer Wisdom

Curated By Cardboard Edison

  • “It can be really useful to take a break from a design now and then. Banging your head against a brick wall will only get you so far, and sometimes taking a step back will help you realize there’s a door right next to where you were standing.” – Teale Fristoe
  • “Early in your design (hopefully before you start) know what you want the game to be. It helps when making decisions later about cuts.” – Peter Gousis

Happy GenCon

Project image

I’m not able to attend GenCon this year due to a family matter, but I wish everyone the best! Check out today’s links for all the great coverage of the convention!

If you get the chance, take a look at our Patreon campaign. Our first milestone will be an exhaustive resource list of game reviewers including a detailed survey. We have much more planned to follow! – Roger
