WizKids today announced a new worker placement game where you control a handful of workers during the caveman days as you try to create the best civilization in the valley. The game will be for 2-5 players and will last around 45 minutes.
In this worker placement game of uncivilization, you are the chief of a prehistoric clan seeking to lead your clan to become the best in the valley! Your clan members will collect resources in order to build your “crazy” inventions. Or, at least, you hope they do. You see, while your leadership skills are excellent, your people are…not the most intelligent of workers. Forgetful and lazy, they’re not always reliable, which can lead to complications in your plans to build the greatest uncivilization in the prehistoric land.
Each turn, players will choose one of the following options: they can send out clan members, call back clan members in order to collect resources, or spend resources in order to build inventions, expand their cave, or ready their drum and spear. In order to for your workers to return, however, you must send them through “The Passage,” a tower in which you drop your meeples. Flaps inserted into the tower may stop your workers from making it to the bottom. In these cases, your workers have lost their way and will not deliver their resources on this turn. You may, later in the game, use the drum to rescue your workers from The Passage, but beware, for there are predators lurking within (hence why the spear is needed!).
Age of Dirt: A Game of Uncivilization will be released in October 2019. For more information, visit the WizKids page on the game.
