Mayfair to release The Colonists this month

December 13, 2016 - 10:48am
The Colonists is the latest game coming from Mayfair games, and this time it's a heavy weight city building type game.  In The Colonists your goal is to have 100% employment, so you will have to build houses to attract population, then educate that population, and then develop jobs for them.  This is accomplished through worker placement on a central board and further tension is added with the fact that resources are limited, so you have to keep a sharp eye on your spending.  The game comes packed with a sort of scenario system as there are four eras you can build your cities in, or you can play over a campaign starting in the earliest era and progressing along to the next after each game.  There are also different levels of complexity included for each so the game can be anywhere from 30 minutes for beginners, to 180 minutes for veterans of the game. So if you are in the mood for a nice, crunchy, heavy weight euro, look for The Colonists on store shelves this month.
