Take Me to the River

Rivers are the foundation of a great society! The Nile turned Egypt into one of the greatest civilizations the world has ever seen. The Tigris and Euphrates created the fertile crescent. The Missippi gave America a crucial trade route. Well, as it turns out, rivers make for the basis of a pretty great game! Days of Wonder's game, The River, is proof of that!

Fun Details

From the makers of Ticket to Ride, The River Board Game is a classic worker placement and resource management game that puts you in charge of trading resources down the river. The game has a light to medium difficulty, making it great for newer gamers and entrenched gamers alike. It comes with a reversible game board, along with personal tablets for each player. It plays 2 to 4 players and each game takes about 45 minutes to play.

How to Play

Gameplay consists of placing your little meeples on the board to acquire resources, craft buildings, and develop your board. As your board becomes more powerful, you must trade in workers to gain bonuses toward winning, which provides for interesting decisions and tradeoffs for you to make during the game. Learning that balance is key to crafting your strategy! If you're a fan of Days of Wonder's other games, or if you're just looking for a new game to break out during game night, then this game is an awesome new take on the genre!
