Hi! It’s Ryan from nights Around a Table, and this is Terra Mystica, an economic area control game for 2-5 players. Here’s The Deal.

In Terra Mystica, you and your friends each play one of 14 different fantasy factions vying for territorial control over a magical realm. You’ll be terraforming the different land hexes to make them habitable for your faction, and then building and upgrading various structures in an attempt to go forth and multiply better and more broadly than your opponents. But each new building you construct tips an economic teeter-totter and adjusts your income. You can use magic to get the job done faster, and most factions have one or two special abilities that tend to give them a competitive edge. At the end of six rounds, the faction that has dominated the map and has risen the highest on these magical cult tracks will earn huge point bonuses towards winning the game.
