Product Description

Set in a mythical land of the same name, Hyperborea is a civilization game that begins at the time when the magic barrier protecting access to the mythical continent of Hyperborea suddenly falls.

Each player takes the role of the leader of a small kingdom situated just outside the now-open-to-be-conquered land. Each kingdom has limited knowledge of housing, trade, movement, warfare, research, and growth, but new and exciting powers are hidden in Hyperborea. During the game, this kingdom will grow in numbers and raise armies, extend its territory, explore and conquer, learn new technologies, etc...

The game's main mechanism, which can be described as "bag-building", involves building a pool of "civilicubes". Each cube represents specializations for your kingdom: war, trade, movement, building, knowledge, growth. Grey cubes represent corruption and waste, and players will acquire them by developing new technologies. (Power corrupts by its own definition, and the more complex a society becomes, the more waste it generates.) Each turn, players draw three random cubes from their bags, then use them to activate knowledge (technologies) they own.

Contents: 6 Central Hexagon Tiles, 30 Borderland Hexagon Tiles, 6 Homeland Tiles, 6 Player Boards, 36 Development Markers, 6 Cloth Bags, 180 Wooden Civilization Cubes, 12 Race Tiles, 60 Race Miniatures, 18 Ghost Miniatures, 48 Fortress Tokens, 64 Advanced Technology Cards, 72 Ruin Tokens, 72 Gems, 6 Objective Tiles, 1 Scoring Pad, Rulebook
