Product Description

An official expansion to Glenn Drover's Empires: The Age of Discovery, Glenn Drover's Empires: The Age of Discovery Builder Expansion will contain:

1) A NEW SPECIALIST: THE BUILDER Abilities: a) When placed on the colonist dock and sent to the New World it will increase the VP's scored for the region: +2 VP's/ Builder (of any color) for 1st place; +1 VP for second place. (The idea is that the colony is much more developed with cities and infrastructure). b) When placed in the Capital Building track, the player pays half the normal cost

The Builder may be acquired via new Capital Buildings or when a player places a colonist on the 5th spot (Builder is Free, other specialists cost 5)

2) 20 NEW CAPITAL BUILDINGS These include some "buildings" that cost zero, but offer a one-time instant effect such as $7, 2 free specialists, and 2 free trade goods. So even if a player is short on cash, a building action is available.

3) A RULES SHEET with the new Builder Rules, Capital Buildings, and even special rules for a historical start (Each Nation has a special ability and one or two Capital Buildings to start the game). The idea is that the Spanish will feel like the Spanish (Conquistadors, etc.), The English will feel like the English, the Dutch like the Dutch, etc.

4) The MINT and OVERPOPULATION will, indeed be a part of the new expansion

Please see the picture on the back of the box for a detailed listing of components.
