Greater Than Games (the folks behind Sentinels of the Multiverse) and Fabled Nexus Games (Galactic Strike Force) have a new worker placement/rotation game up for crowdfunding on Kickstarter. In Dubai: Rebuild the Ruins, two to four players will control various factions aiming to restore their home city to some form of former glory generations after a great war. The project just recently kicked off so there’s a way to go to get Dubai: Rebuild the Ruins funded but, if you’re interested, you can reserve a copy at the $59.00 pledge level.
From Greater Than Games:
THE YEAR IS 2299. THE GREAT WAR IS NOW JUST A DISTANT MEMORY IN THE MINDS OF ALL BUT THE ELDEST AMONG US.
Battles led to the splintering of the people living in the surrounding areas of The Shining City while one faction remained: the Hazimin. The Hazimin have done what they can to keep their still-glistening tower standing tall. Although their monumental home of the Burj Khalifa is impressive, their numbers are few.
Even as new generations grow to power, the ruins of Dubai are at the heart of all conflicts among the factions of the wasteland. With the Burj Khalifa standing as a beacon of what once was – a promise of what could be again – the new leaders of each faction have decided it is time to reclaim the city and win back the allegiance of the people… and become the leaders of Dubai.
Power over the city will be decided by the people. As your faction’s leader, it is up to you to turn the ruins of the diamond of the desert into a new home for your people – and for all people. But your faction’s control must outreach that of other factions to ensure that you rule in the city of Dubai.
Dubai: Rebuild the Ruins implements worker management in a new and dynamic way by using worker rotation. Circular tracks used for worker placement keep players on their toes and allow for constant interactions, as turns often involve every player and turn order is always changing. The setting is also unique, drawing closely from the modern day city of Dubai, but pushing it forward to a post-apocalyptic future! Using your unique faction abilities and your created strategic engine, your faction will earn resources to build up your section of the city while trying to potentially block opponents from taking over too much space on the map.
