Description Edit | History

This game by Carl Chudyk is a journey through innovations from the stone age through modern times. Each player builds a civilization based on various technologies, ideas, and cultural advancements, all represented by cards. Each of these cards has a unique power which will allow further advancement, point scoring, or even attacking other civilizations. Be careful though, as other civilizations may be able to benefit from your ideas as well!

To win, you must score achievements, which you can attain by amassing points or by meeting certain criteria with the innovations you have built. Plan your civilization well, and outmaneuver your opponents, and with some luck you will achieve victory!

6 Playmat for Innovation + Innovation: Echoes (28" x 14" @ 300dpi)
This is my take on a playmat for Innovation and the Innovation: Echoes expansion. It's 28.5" x 14.5" and 300dpi. It is seriously busy, with 20 deck spaces, and 10 spaces for the Domains. It's based on the IELLO imagery.

1 Innovation - Domain requirements
Description of the requirements to dominate a domain. Includes both base game and Echoes of the Past. 5 copies, 1 per player if using the expansion rules

6 Innovation: Monuments Throughout History
This is a custom expansion I created for Innovation to be used with two of its other official expansions, Echoes of the Past and Figures in the Sand. Its effects to the game are far from subtle but offer a unique experience. Note that I do not own any rights to any copyrighted or trademarked images or designs and this is purely intended for fun as a supplement to the original game.
