Hans im Glück Sends Mankind to "Planet B"

July 22, 2022 - 10:11am

Hans im Glück returns with a new game in 2022, Planet B. Designed by first time designer Johannes Natterer, with art from Marcel Grober and Ingram Schell, Planet B features a combination of worker placement, markets, engine building, and political voting.

Humankind was in need of a new planetary home, and after discovering a new planet, they move their civilization to the newly christened "Planet B." Players take the roles of corrupt governors, as they make crooked deals with corporations to push their agendas and gain influence over the government of Planet B. Build cities, put the population to work, and control the news, as you jockey for the votes in the presidency. 

Planet B is listed as a 2022 release. It plays 2-4 players, 60-180 minutes, ages 14+.
