Look Out for Opportunities in Arkwright: The Card Game
Game Brewer has announced a Kickstarter campaign for the card game version of the heavy economic game, Arkwright. Arkwright: The Card Game is designed by the original game’s designer, Stefan Risthaus, and the artwork is provided by Mehdi Merrouche. The game plays 2-4 players, ages 12 and up, in 60-100 minutes.
According to the Kickstarter page for Arkwright: The Card Game, the game play is more streamlined than the board game version, although the economic nature of the game remains. The players are 18th century entrepreneurs, building factories, hiring workers to man the factories, and selling the goods the factories produce. The game is played out over the course of 3 decades, each of which is divided into 4 rounds.
This fully-funded Kickstarter campaign has about 3 weeks left to go. The Kickstarter page features a link to play the game on Tabletopia, the rule book in several languages, a preview of the game, as well as a video tutorial on how to play. There are several stretch goals available and some add-ons as well. Be sure and check out the game’s page here. Arkwright: The Card Game is expected to begin delivery in June 2021.
