Z-Man Announces Hadara

February 17, 2019 - 6:41pm

Z-Man announces Hadara, a civilization building game with an innovative card selection system.  In Hadara, players attempt to build the most prestigious civilization over the course of three epochs.  In order to grow their civilization, players will recruit people from different cultures who will bring in their knowledge and skills to build your commerce, military, arts, agriculture, and technologies. The card selection system is based on a rotating wheel depicting the five player civilizations. Surrounding the civilization wheel are the five decks of specialties to improve civilizations. Players may recruit from the specialty closest to their civilization symbol of the rotation wheel.  Players need to carefully consider who they will and will not recruit.  As the wheel is rotated, new opportunities are presented, including those people left unrecruited by others. With each epoch, merchants, artisans, philosophers, warriors, and architects are more skilled and bring greater benefits to civilizations but at a great cost.  Hadara is designed by Benjamin Schwer (Crown of Emara) and features artwork by Dominik Mayer (Concordia and Transatlantic).  Hadara plays 2-5 players, ages 10+, in 45-60 minutes. It is available for pre-order now, or look for it in your friendly local game store this spring.
