A Game of Power and Intrigue
in the Gilded Age
The war of the currents is raging. Thomas Edison’s direct current is safe, cheap and simple, but weak. Nikola Tesla’s alternating current is powerful, but complicated and occasionally deadly. Which technology will power New York City and then the world?
As the leader of a fledgling electric company you must hire staff, build generators and power lines, win bids, complete projects…and sabotage the competition. Build your Electric Empire and power the gilded age.
Electric Empires is an engine-building, worker placement game set in the gilded age of New York City.
A unique shared reputation mechanism balances semi-cooperative strategy with cut-throat competition.
Asymmetric gameplay means different power currents require different strategies and tactics providing great replayability.
