Description

Especially if the game just opens with bidding and new players don’t have any clue what things are actually worth.

Furnace is an engine-building Eurogame in which players take on the roles of 19th-century capitalists building their industrial corporations and aspiring to make as much money as they can by purchasing companies, extracting resources, and processing them in the best combinations possible.Once everyone has activated all their cards the start player passes to the next player, more cards are revealed for auction, and the process repeats. Some of the ongoing effects were a bit strange, but we never had a single rules question about them. If you like engine-builders, or like the sound of it and want to give it a try, Furnace could well be the game for you. With a character and a starting factory, each player takes four bidding disks worth one, two, three and four respectively.

Each player also starts with a random capitalist (or with no capitalist at all, if you are playing the easy, introductory version). This makes players think a lot more about what they bid on from rounds two onwards and creates a much more challenging game experience. During the production phase players work through their company cards, producing goods, converting goods and hopefully earning money. To upgrade, you’ll need to spend resources along with the token, making timing your upgrades critical. Whenever you upgrade a card and flip it over, the artwork shows the factory, oil pump, or whatever, becoming greater than what it was.

I love this, because it’s exactly one of those low-rules items with a great amount of “emergent complexity. Furnace also includes capitalist cards that contain unique effects, and if you want, you can choose to deal one out to each player at the start of the game. The game was announced on Friday the 23rd of October and yes, I already have the fully finalized, market-ready version in my hands for a while.
