New Angeles – Can You Run the Most Profitable Corporation?
Welcome to the Android universe and New Angeles, a board game of corporate greed and machinations by Fantasy Flight Games!
New Angeles is the largest, richest and most diverse city on Earth, and it is here that you will find the global headquarters for the world’s most powerful megacorps: Haas-Bioroid, Globalsec, Jinteki, Melange Mining, NBN and the Weyland Consortium.
In New Angeles, you take the reins of these megacorporations. You have wealth and influence that you use in order to obtain more wealth and influence. To achieve this, you will have to make deals and temporary alliances, gain financial superiority over your corporate rivals, and at the same time you must keep an eye on the city and keep crime, disease and unrest under control. Good business is the greatest matter of concern to you in New Angeles and it is the key to achieve your two goals. The first goal is to increase your profits and the second one is to maintain order within the city.
At the beginning of your turn, you draw a number of action cards which represent different deals and each one of them has its own game effect. You take turns choosing one of your cards and proposing a deal to the other corps. Meanwhile, each round a new asset, representing a talented and useful person or organization, is placed on the board, and if the other corps agree to deal with you, you claim the asset and benefit from it for the rest of the game. Of course, there will always be at least one corp that wants you to fail, so they may try to undercut your deals by countering your offers or coveting the asset that entered the game during that round.
You will, also, need to spend some of your time keeping the city in order. If you can’t do that, there will be the threat of rioting and chaos, which may lead to U.S. government intervention.
Make deals, negotiations and bribes as you pursue the greatest profit for your corporation.
New Angeles has been planned for release in the fourth quarter of 2016.
