SET IN THE UNIVERSE OF I C E

 

In the midst of a windswept, snowy landscape, a group of explorers discover a gigantic cave with a massive structure that radiates out from it. Around this Hearth, the Master Founders lay the foundation for what will become The City, home to the powerful Guilds of I C E!

Following the directives of the first Founders’ Council on the Design of the City, as well as the Requests of the first Guilds, you will design and create this famous City from scratch!

F O U N D E R S is a strategic and innovative game of tile placement where each player is in a hidden alliance with 2 other players they don’t know.

The games last around 30 min for 3 to 6 players from 10 years old.

GAMEPLAY

UNKNOWN ALLIANCES

 

At the beginning of the game, each player receives two objective cards from two different Guilds. These objectives each have a twin from the same family in the hands of two other random players. Thus, each player shares a category of objectives with another player they do not know the identity of.

SMART SCORING

 

At the end of the game, the score of each objective family is determined by taking into account only the objective card with the lowest score in that category. Then everyone’s score is determined by adding up the scores of their two objective categories. This means players must be vigilant throughout the game, and pay attention to what other players are doing!

CLEVERLY BUILD THE CITY

 

In turn, place a new neighborhood  tile, trying to follow the instructions given by your objective cards as best as you can.

Remember, you must not only focus on your own objectives, but also on the ones of  your “partners” while you don’t know immediately who they are. During a game, you will have to pay close attention to what the other players are doing, because the success of your secret partners determines your own!

However, even though you share certain objectives, only one of you can obtain the prestigious title of Master CryoArchitect!
