Looking for ideas on games that have either bronze or salt as components.
Must be good as a 2-player & also easily available.
Sub 1 hour & minimal set-up/ footprint a bonus.

RTtA being considered
Targi & Jambo ruled out

I've been wanting to do a salt-mining game for a while.

Have you looked at Salt Merchant? Looks like it might fit the bill

I don't know about anything that specifically does bronze, like making metal alloys, or bronze casting, but it could be an interesting theme

It doesn't have to be the theme - as long as one or other appear in some form in the game

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

Can't think of anything with salt referenced in it at all, but how about...

Hmm, very interesting specifics. Never seen this before, except perhaps bronze. As for other games, I only know of one that has Salt as a resource or as a main force behind the game. Magnum Sal is all about a salt mine and collecting salt and water to use to go further into the mine. That's half the game from what I recall.

I play games not to win, it's the gathering that's important - Thanks for the tip Cate108!

Yeah, +1 Magnum Sal. Also check out Upon a Salty Ocean.

Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization actually contains bronze as your base resource creation mechanism. Very much not to be confused with the far short dice reimp I mentioned above. SO SO good (but long)
