Anno 1800 (KOSMOS)This Spring will see the release of Anno 1800, based on the hit Ubisoft PC game, from KOSMOS. The game, designed by Martin Wallace, will task players with growing their island nations as they compete during the dawn of the industrial age. Anno 1800 is for two to four players, ages 12+, plays in around two hours, and will carry an MSRP of $69.95.

About the game:

The sun is rising on the age of industry; will you rise too?

Ship fleets allow for lively trade and the development of new islands in the Old and New World. You have to fulfill the wishes of your own population.

Anno 1800 is an epic city-building strategy board game based on Ubisoft’s popular PC game of the same name. Players strive to build up their industrial might as they develop an island society at the dawn of the industrial age. Investing in their nautical fleets enables trade and expansion to new territories in the old and new worlds, but players must focus above all on maintaining the health and happiness of the citizens of their home islands. While the population is initially satisfied with food and clothing, in time it will demand valuable luxury goods. Players must plan their development strategies and supply chains carefully while keeping an eye on the distribution of specialized roles within their territories. The objective of the game is to plan for an even distribution of farmers, workers, craftsmen, engineers, and investors. But beware, because the competition never sleeps. Players may steal new achievements out from under each other’s noses at any time! Whose island will prosper and whose will fall?
