Ecos: First Continent

What if the formation of Earth had gone differently? In Ecos: First Continent, players are forces of nature molding the planet, but with competing visions of its grandeur. You have the chance to create a part of the world, similar but different to the one we know. Which landscapes, habitats, and species thrive will be up to you.

Gameplay in Ecos is simultaneous. Each round, one player reveals element tokens from the element bag, giving all players the opportunity to complete a card from their tableau and shape the continent to their own purpose. Elements that cannot be used can be converted into energy cubes or additional cards in hand or they can be added to your tableau to give you greater options as the game evolves. Mountain ranges, jungle, rivers, seas, islands and savanna, each with their own fauna, all lie within the scope of the players' options.

The chart indicating Ecos: First Continent requires 2-6 players, recommended player size for the best game time is 3-4, plays in 45-75 minutes, features Animals, environmental, prehistoric, and territory building themes, and offers Bingo, contracts, modular board, set collection, simultaneous action selection, tile placement, and turn order progressive Mechanics
