Via Nebula

Via Nebula is a strategy and family board game released in 2016. Players compete to clear clouds from a meadow, extract resources, and construct settlements. The game is designed for 2 to 4 players, with a playing time of 45 to 60 minutes. It is suitable for players aged 12 and above, with a complexity rating of 2.24 out of 5.

In the game, players take on the roles of crafters, builders, and carriers, aiming to gather resources, create pathways through mist-covered areas, and assist settlers in constructing new structures. Cooperation with other players is possible, involving path creation and resource sharing, but individual objectives remain important. The gameplay involves actions like clearing mist from hexes, establishing production sites, opening building sites, transporting resources, and completing constructions based on contracts.

The game concludes when a player completes their fifth building. Following this, opponents take two final actions, and players earn points based on cleared hexes, opened production sites, and contract values, with a bonus for the player who triggered the game's end. "Via Nebula" is ranked 1,074 overall on BoardGameGeek, with a rank of 630 in the strategy category and 276 in the family category.
