I'm going to be bringing two games to CABS this Friday: Road to Enlightenment, which is on Kickstarter right now (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/177499259/road-to-enligh...), and The New Science, which is in playtesting and we're trying to get produced for Essen.

I will be arriving at CABS at 3p and would like to run Road to Enlightenment twice, and The New Science as many times as there are players. Thanks in advance for looking...

The full game of Road to Enlightenment is 3-7 players. It is a deck building grand strategy game that gives players control of 134 historical cultural figures as the 7 great European powers of the 17th and early 18th century battle for prestige. You control such disparate actors as Isaac Newton, Moliere, Oliver Cromwell and Pope Innocent X.

The rules are straightforward and it takes only a short time to learn but a long time to master. It is a balance of power game that will reward the best negotiator and deal maker.

Road to Enlightenment take 30 minutes per player, adding 60-90 minutes for a table of first-timers. I would like to run it with at least 4 people. 6 is better, but the time commitment compounds with more players.

The New Science is a 2-6 player game about the scientific revolution. It brings together worker placement mechanics with expanding up a tech tree.

You play as one of the six great minds of the scientific revolution. Each scientist has his own particular skills, strengths and weaknesses. It is a heady time to be a scientist and you are all competing to be named the first President of the Royal Society.

Using the limited hours you have in a day you must spread out your energy between researching, experimenting, publishing, corresponding with other great minds, collaborating with fellow players, hiring assistants into your laboratory and spreading your influence through the government, religious, scientific and business communities. Ultimately, the goal is to gain acclaim by being the first to publish about groundbreaking discoveries.
