In 2017, when Plan B Games released Century: Spice Road, it was presented as the first game in a planned series. In 2018 the second game of the series, Century: Eastern Wonders, was released. Now, Plan B Games and designer Emerson Matsuuchi have announced the third and final game in the series, Century: A New World.
“Players serve as merchants seeking fortune in the bountiful American continent. Only the most shrewd merchants will strike out to explore the foreign land, trade with local inhabitants, journal their findings, and hunt and gather to survive.”
Each game in the series has been set in a different time period and region of the world, and has featured the core mechanic of resource management and trading. Spice Road was based around card selection and hand management. Eastern Wonders introduced a modular board and pick-up and deliver to the series. Now, A New World will use worker placement and is set in 16th century North America. A New World can be played by itself, or mixed and matched with the other two games in the series.
Century: A New World is designed for 2 to 4 players and is planned to debut at Origins Game Fair later this year.
