Endless Winter: Paleoamericans
1:42:43– Rules Gist
Endless Winter Paleo-Americans is a 1 to 4 player game designed by Stan Kordonskiy and published by Fantasia Games. At its core Endless Winter is a worker placement game with a splash of about every game mechanic you can think of including set collecting, deck building, area control and some tile placement for good measure.
The game takes place over four rounds with eclipse periods in between (the eclipse is an income and clean up phase between rounds). On a turn you can play cards from your hand to take actions from the cards themselves or to power up the main actions on the board. Those main actions are adding members to and killing off members of your tribe, collecting culture cards that give you abilities, putting out tents and constructing villages and going hunting.
End of game is triggered after the last eclipse phase and points are scored for the set collection of animals, the cards in your hand and the honor and burial track.
There’s a whole lot more bits and bobs to this game but just because the game is called Endless Winter doesn’t mean we need an endless gist. Now back to the studio where we review this wooly mammoth of a game.
