Nautilus Industries is a game Leif designed several years ago, and has been developing and testing since. It would be classed as a medium euro, with a fast play time and setup. Some of the key elements include: Market manipulation, board manipulation, and some worker placement.
In Nautilus Industries, players will take on the role of a business owner who seeks their fortune at the bottom of the sea. Word has spread of the riches that can be gathered from the depths, and the race to mine these rare earth elements has begun! Player will take actions, in turn order, that include: Programming robots to mine the depths for specific elements, upgrade their storage capability, change the order of the board tiles, buy upgrades, or invest in one of 5 companies.
Ryan says: “For fans of economic management games, Nautilus Industries will make a splash. The rules are simple, and it flows along at a decent pace. Yet even though turns are pretty straightforward, there is a whole lot of decision-making going on under the surface. It has players making calculated decisions on buying, selling, and trying to undermine other players, but it does so via control of the marketplace versus direct conflict. Nautilus has you not only focusing on your own ambitions, but it encourages you to keep an eye on the guy in the submarine next to you too.”
