After the phenomenal success of Century – Spice Road and Century – Golem Edition, Plan B Games have announced Century – Eastern Wonders. Designed by Emerson Matsuuchi, this will be the second title in the Century trilogy.
Centuries ago, the lucrative spice trade compelled the prosperous nations of the world to explore alternate routes to the sources of these precious goods. These nations took to the seas to seek out exotic lands. This led to the discovery of the famed Spice Islands where the most valuable spices of the world were found. This discovery also led to further exploration, competition….and later, war! During this time of prosperity and opportunity, you find yourself traveling on the high seas in search of these exotic wonders. As a merchant and privateer representing your nation, you seek to control this region for glory and profit. Your journey continues in the Far East.
Players take to the high seas as merchants who will trade cloves, tea, chili and ginger around the exotic Indonesian Islands. Century – Eastern Wonders introduces new mechanisms and players now utilize a map instead of cards to trade. The signature bowls and spice cubes make their return in addition to other, high quality components such as wooden boats, tons of tiles, and outposts.
Fans who already own Century – Spice Road can combine both titles to play the mixable game, From Sand to Sea, which has its own rule set. Unfortunately, this game does not appear to be compatible with Century – Golem Edition.
Century – Eastern Wonders supports 2 – 4 players, ages 8+, and takes about 30 – 45 minutes to play. It releases on June 13, 2018 at Origins 2018. Retail release would be shortly thereafter. Pre-orders will open soon with an exclusive pre-order promotion.
