Wolsung: The Boardgame is a large family game for 2 to 4 players. They act as inventors and industrialists living in a fictional steampunk world, largely similar to the Victorian times. The inventors develop extraordinary constructions – steam cars, golems and zeppelins – in the race for the title of the best designer at the World’s Fair.
The objective of the game is to build the best and the most unique machines – players compete against each other for plans of the devices as well as for the resources necessary to build them.
