A complete remake of the classic SPI and Avalon Hill versions from the 1970's. While the original game featured largely the classic hex and counter movement that was prevalent in the 70's. This new version will feature features area-movement, action points for movement and a new card deck (that adds random events without driving the game). Players will use cards for both events and action points and at the same time being able to play cards during their opponent's turns to counter their efforts.
Players can play one of four European powers competing for control of the resources of the new world. The game's time line goes from 1495 to 1615 with players trying to establish colonies in the Americas and bring home as much gold and resources as they can back to Europe. Along the way they will have to deal with natural disasters, other European powers and of course the indigenous people of the New World including the Mayans, Incas and Aztecs.
