Over millions of years of evolution and adaptation, the flora and fauna of this unique planet have grown and developed into amazing life-forms, creating beautiful symbiotic ecosystems and diverse habitats. It is time to create your island: a 4×4 tableau of self-supporting growth, expansion and supply where even the cards you do not need become compost for future gain. OVERVIEW: Earth is an open-world engine builder for 1 to 5 players with simple rules and countless strategic possibilities.
With its encyclopedic nature and a near-infinite number of tableau combinations, every single game will allow you to discover new synergies and connections, just as our vast and fascinating world allows us to do! Players will create a self-supporting engine of growth, expansion, and supply by drafting from a deck of over 364 unique cards and strategically placing them in their tableau. STARTING THE GAME – The game begins before the starting hand has even been drafted. Players will receive an Island, Climate, and Ecosystem card during set-up.
