In each round, you must choose which action to perform and which bonus to activate, managing your supplies of matter, energy and antimatter. The peculiar strength of the game is the innovative resource management: Each player has a finite amount of matter, energy and antimatter that they can produce or spend during the game. In each round, they can decide to burn forever one or more resources to perform powerful actions, thereby allowing them to follow different strategies.
Bretagne is a worker placement game in which players must build lighthouses on the coast of Bretagne in the 19th century.
On each turn players take actions, such as trade resources, cards or money, hire workers or engineers and of course use resources, workers or engineers to build.
Players can choose to score points immediately when they build or decide otherwise to take part at the final evaluation of the lighthouse. If they score immediately, they guarantee themselves some points; if they wait, they could reach higher scores or send workers to harbors to earn extra bonuses for the remaining rounds. So choose wisely!
