Gearworks (Solo Option)


Gearworks is a puzzle-style board game featuring card placement, hand management, and a "twist" on area control.

The game is often described as "Sudoku meets steampunk."

Strategically position your gears to fix a mysterious clockwork machine in the corner of the workshop.

Collect parts created by the machine each round by being the last player to fix its various components.

As a tinkerer, you can certainly put those parts to good use and create fantastical contraptions!

Will the other tinkerers sabotage your efforts or will you earn the workshop owner’s favor and become the master tinkerer?
