Brass Empire is a strategic, steampunk, deck-building, card game for 1-5 players in which players battle and sabotage other companies to amass economic wealth and influence. Journey to the world of Cobalt, where an obsession with brass, the most valuable resource in the world, drives corporate greed and corruption. Build your corporation from the ground up by hiring employees and researching powerful steampunk contraptions. Battle and challenge your friends in this game of corporate espionage.
Welcome to the steampunk world of Cobalt. For centuries, Cobalt has been ruled by corporations seeking to enhance their wealth and influence with brass. Brass doesn't just fuel the economy, but literally fuels the technology and transportation of the world through its unique thermodynamic properties. Every day these companies compete and battle to expand their territory and authority. Companies work to optimize their labor force and resources to mine the most brass in each territory through corporate espionage, technology, security, and even sabotage. You work for such a company and have been tasked with expanding into a new region by constructing new corporate buildings, hiring employees, and battling other companies in the area. The player who earns the most brass will lead his company to victory in the region.
Each turn, you will play Employee cards from your hand to gain resources. These resources will allow you to acquire new employees, buildings, and units for your deck. Along the way, you will acquire buildings to enhance your hold on the region and command units to attack other companies and mine for brass. At the end of the game, the player with the most brass is the winner.
