On March 5, StuntKitePublishing.com will start accepting pre-orders for their upcoming release Patchistory. In addition, Lula da Silva will be replaced with Nelson Mandela and Big Ben will replace Disneyland.
If you are not already familiar with Patchistory, it debuted at Spiel 2013. Patchhistory is a civilization building game for 2 to 4 players using worker placement and auction & bidding mechanisms to score victory points.
Players bid on land cards with money. After winning a card, the player patches that land card. Each land card is divided into colored sections and the card is placed under or over an area of a card currently in the play area, “patching” them together. Players collect resources based on their land tiles and assigning descendants to some tiles give bonuses. Trade routes are boards that connect two players and after a descendant’s movement completes a route, players can either ally, and get a better trade route, or go to war. The goal of the game is for players to have the most culture, or victory points, to win.
