New Game: Furnace

New from Arcane Wonders is Furnace, an engine-building game with an auction mechanic. – – 2 to 4 players – – 30 to 60 minutes game time

Set in the 19th century, players are the capitalists building their industrial revolution corporations. Through the auction bid phase, players build a bunch of factories and crank them up to produce resources and points.  Each round a series of factories are available to buy at auction.  Each player has 4 bid discs numbered 1 to 4.  These will get placed on the factories in order to obtain permanent ownership or for the use of that company. Whoever places the highest numbered bid on a factory card gains permanent ownership of it for the remainder of the game.  Everyone else who placed a bid on that factory gets that card’s specified compensation, either resources or a production effect times the number on their bid token.  Once the bidding is over, each player gets to crank up all of their factories to generate additional resources and points.  After 4 rounds the player with the most points wins.  This one is going to be easy to learn and get to the table, but it will be challenging to figure out how to generate points more efficiently than everyone else.
