Encyclopedia

Encyclopedia is a 2022 worker placement game that focuses on players collecting and studying different animals from around the world. The game is set during the 18th century and players are working to help create the first encyclopedia of natural history, led by the Comte de Buffon. The game uses dice rolling mechanics to determine the actions players can take on their turn, such as preparing expeditions, raising funds, and hiring researchers. Players can also spend different tokens to change the value or color of their dice. Players earn Victory Points by publishing their research and amassing collections of animals, and the player with the most points at the end of the game wins. The game is designed by Olivier Melison and Eric Dubus, and features beautiful illustrations of the different animals included in the game.
