Reviews & Previews

Glass Road

Glass Road is the latest game from famed designer Uwe Rosenburg (published by Z-Man Games in the US). Glass Road simulates the Bavarian glass trade. Hire specialists to aid you, but choose wisely. If you hire the same specialist as another player you both get a lesser effect.
