Description

Orbis is a tactical game of world development and strategic resource management, in which players take on the roles of gods creating their best universes. Utilizing lands lost in the aether, players accumulate worshippers to spend on even more fruitful lands — some of which grant game-changing bonuses. The key to victory lies in having the most creation points (CPs) at the end of the game!

On your turn, you must take a tile from either the nine region tiles in the center of the table or the available God tiles. (A player may take only one God tile throughout the game.) Every time you take a region tile, worshippers of the same color as the tile taken are placed on adjacent tiles, making the tiles left behind more enticing for the next player. Restrictions apply to region tile placement, making each decision tougher than the last!

After fifteen rounds, the game ends when all players have created their universe, at which point CPs are calculated, bonus tiles awarded, and a winner is crowned. Beautifully simple yet rich in strategy, Orbis is a different game each and every time you play it.

Become the best god and craft your most prosperous universe!

Orbis is a light-medium engine building game with a spatial aspect and pinch-points that distinguish it from Splendor and Century: Spice Road, while fitting neatly into that genre. It is largely attractive with strong tile art, colorful cubes, and a nice final 2d pyramid for each player.

Orbis feels sort of like a cousin to the blockbuster hit Splendor. Less focused on engine building and more focused on drafting and tile placement, it wraps up a nice depth of strategy within a simple rules set. Though it is quite abstracted, the theme of Orbis involves a pantheon of deities.

One of the best classes that I took in high school was Mythology. Not Intro to Mythology or Advanced Mythology III; just simple, basic mythology.

The work of an almighty God or Goddess is never done. Creating new worlds, gaining the devotion of Worshipers, picking the kids up after daycare, it never ends! At least at the end of the day, you get to sit back and enjoy the beauty of your hard work.
