Terracotta Army by Board&Dice Coming Soon

 

Board&Dice revealed the cover art and additional information about their upcoming game Terracotta Army by designers Przemysław Fornal and Adam Kwapiński, and a solo mode by Dávid Turczi. Terracotta Army is an area majority and worker placement game where players work together to build armies of terracotta statues with the player earning the most victory points being declared the winner.

"Emperor Qin Shi Huang has passed away. To protect him in the afterlife, a great army in the form of statues of faithful warriors must be assembled to stand guard in the Emperor's tomb. You will be among those tasked with building this magnificent army. In Terracotta Army, you represent talented craftsmen and artists laboring to build the wondrous assembly of statues."

During the game, players collect resources, upgrade their workers, and seek favor with the emperor's advisors. The goal is to play a crucial role in the process of creating the terracotta army, and each player's success is measured in victory points. Players will build the army together, but after the fifth round of the game is over, only one player; the one with the most points, will stand as the winner.

During the game, you place terracotta warrior miniatures within the mausoleum, forming groups. A group's terracotta warriors may belong to multiple players as denoted by the player bases on those miniatures. Multiple separate groups consisting of the same type of warrior may exist within the mausoleum.

Players will have many opportunities to score points based on domination and presence. To achieve domination, you must be the only player with the most of the specific resource or type of terracotta statue currently being scored (if you are the only player, you have domination). To have a presence, a player must have at least one of the specific resources or type of statue currently being scored. At the end of the fifth round, the player with the most VPs wins.

Board&Dice will be releasing Terracotta Army at GenCon 2022.
