It's 1922. The cannons of the Great War have been silent for four years now. The world is recovering, arising from its ashes at the speed of the new hydroelectric energy, a legacy of the grand Nikola Tesla. A new war, fought in the alleys of the Alps, is about to begin: will you manage to beat your opponents and build the biggest hydroelectric empire the world has ever known?
Barrage is an epic worker-placement strategy game. Up to four players will compete in five rounds, by planning their construction actions to build hydroelectric infrastructures on an articulated and challenging game map. You must place your structures wisely in order to prevent your opponents from stealing the most precious resource there is: water. By controlling water, you'll be able to produce energy and fulfill profitable contracts.
Carefully plan each move, but be ready to make bold strategic choices: this is Barrage!
