Ophir FULL

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Ophir is a bustling world of trade, overflowing with precious goods to deliver to its denizens, that only the bravest and wisest choose to participate in. Moving about the tangled trade routes is a dangerous proposition, not only because of the sea itself, but also because losing the race means losing your livelihood as a master trader. The great temples of Ophir demand tribute to build their towering wonders to the gods and all great traders of Ophir seek to see the temples rise ever higher.
For 2-4 players, Ophir is a 45-60 minute pick-up and deliver game that uses unique market mechanisms to drive the economy. Each player has an exclusive role like the “Ambassador” or “Chancellor” they will utilize as they vie for resources to deliver to the Market. Gain money to purchase valuable metals and ship upgrades and grow in Influence to perform special actions as you maneuver the seas. Players will have to roll dice to enter contested waters, and your rivals will attempt to shift the Market in their favor, but if you can contribute the most silver and gold to the Temple before it is complete, you win!

With its approachable map and exclusion of direct conflict, Ophir has a familiar and accessible atmosphere that families will enjoy. But with its modular setup, exclusive player roles, and mercurial market, Ophir has tactics, replayability, and tension for experienced gamers to savor.
