Kickstarter – Beer Empire

Beer Empire is the 3rd Kickstarter from Board&Dice, find out more at the Kickstarter Page, or read the press release below!

In Beer Empire, you become the owner of a brewery who strives for his or her market share by skillfully matching ingredients of known recipes. At the same time, you aspire to brew a beer that will be the best in the festival — but these two elements do not always go hand in hand.

That’s why players have to examine what the market expects from their beer, which styles are in the current trend, and what festival reviewers like. As if that was not enough, the world in which we brew beer is alive! The shifts on the beer market change trends and critics’ tastes. The market set-up is unique each time, so you need to manage your resources wisely and carefully follow the market and other players’ actions.

Beer Empire is mainly based on a set-collection mechanism as players compose recipes using a variety of ingredients (resource tiles) like light and dark malts, hops, fermentation type (open or closed) and type of container (bottle, can, barrel or keg). Each of these components may add different effects and influence on quality of beer: Aroma, Color, Taste.

What is most important is the fact that the success is entirely up to you and your abilities of smart resource management (tile placement & worker placement) and right recipes composing. Will you accomplish goals in all the fields or you will you focus just on a chosen element?
What we want to underline is that each of these elements influences one another making every play-through unique.

Building your own Beer Empire is a lot of work but it very rewarding!
