Glass Road – Z-Man upcoming game


June 28 2013

Glass Road is the new game from designer Uwe Rosenberg, creator of Agricola, Ora & Labora, Babel, and many other fantastic games! Oh yeah, and it is also a game from the same people that brought us Terra Mystica: Feuerland Spiele! So this game is going to be epic!

When is it coming?

It will be premiering at Essen this fall and will be released worldwide shortly after.

What is it about?

Glass Road commemorates the 700 year old tradition of glass making in the Bavarian Forest. You must skillfully manage your glass and brick production in order to build the right structures that help you to keep your business flowing. Cut the forest to keep the fires burning in the ovens, spread and remove ponds, pits and forests to supply yourself with the items you need. There are 15 specialists at your side to carry out your orders...

Although the game features some typical Uwe-elements, it is not a typical "Rosenberg". Since you are forced to play a specialist card when somebody else plays it, you have to deal with chance. Flexibility is the key. While it is a 1-4 player game, it is still a great game to play when you are only 2!

Here is a glimpse of what the game looks like. (In German, but it still gives you a idea!)
