AOC: (dark) Age of Champagne!

Post by DrClick »

Produce and sell your best Champagne vintages to become cellar master of the decade (because a century would be too long)!

In Age of Champagne, players will be sending their collaborators to the various worker placement spots on the main board to perform actions.

Over the course of 10 game rounds, these collaborators will help you expand your vineyard and make investments to improve your wine press and install new wineries.

When the time is right, you can use them to run marketing campaigns that will raise the status of your produced wines, so that they will earn more points when you sell the vintages from your cellar.

At the end of each round, you will be able to prepare for the next year by transforming wines from your winery to vintages stored in your cellar, and harvest ripe grapes depending on the capacity of your wine press and wineries.

The majority of your points will be scored by selling vintages to fulfil orders. At the end of the game, players receive additional points for vineyard majorities and diversification, and for how well they performed on the eco-responsibility report; this mainly depends on the ways used for shipping vintages during the game.

Age of Champagne is a medium weight worker placement game that includes resource management and set collection. The game feels very tight with only 3 available workers each round, so you have to prioritize and will never be able to do everything you want!

I'll never get used to AOP, it will always be AOC to me.
