To commemorate the 50th anniversary of GenCon, Plan B Games is pleased to announce Century: Golem edition! We’re so excited to share this new edition with you that the first 50 fans at the Plan B Games merchandise booth (#2637) Thursday morning at 10 a.m. to proclaim, "I came for the golems!" will get a FREE copy of Century: Golem edition!


Century: Spice Road was released earlier this year with critical praise. However, many fans cried out for the Golem edition. We listened....Golem edition will be available exclusively through our web store and convention booths! The Golem edition includes original manga-inspired art paired with the simple hand-management mechanism introduced in Century: Spice Road. To help players further immerse themselves in the world of Caravania, the components in Spice Road have been replaced to match the game’s new exciting theme and setting. Lastly, the golems couldn't be released without a new customized playmat! Playmats are sold separately and available exclusively through Plan B Games (playmats can be ordered in early October).

EDIT - BGG listing -

Mechanically speaking - the game is identical to Century: Spice Road (card abilities are the same). The differences that involve the theme include the box and card art, as well as components.

And if so...
How will this jive with the 2 follow up games? Will they also have an alternative theme to match somehow?

I just checked the map and I believe you're at 2637. I don't think booth 2367 even exists. I'll try to get there for my copy!! Let the insanity begin. :whistle:

Will it hit retailers at some point? $12.49 for 10-15 day shipping is pretty weak.

The website says the playmat is no longer in stock. Is that an error?

I'm right there with you

BUT...

They haven't answered my question yet if only our "bland" spice version will make sense with the upcoming games yet. Maybe we'll be happier in the long run?

Presently, I am unaware of any plans to distribute through retail channels.

I'm here for the 3-game integration, I might prefer golem, but I care more for the overall game than just the paint.

Presently, we have no plans to extend this line unlike with Spice Road. This is 100% fan service for those eager for the golem edition's manga art.

I... might be able to play this one :-O


Can we pre-order for Gencon pickup? A free copy would be great but I'd mostly like to guarantee a copy without paying outrageous shipping, since this looks to be the only version of the game I would be able to play.

We were sure to use a different color for components to make it easier for those with color blindness (like me - I have no problems with Spice Road), but we think the different components are a nice side-effect for those with color blind issues.

I'd also be interested to know if Gen Con pickup is an option for pre-ordering.

If we can't pre-order for pickup, will there at least be copies available to purchase at Gencon, or do we have to be in the first 50 to have a chance at it?

Copies will be available, but I don't know the exact quantities now.

So is the game going to sell out before the playmats are available? I want to get the game, but I would prefer to order them both together, to save some on shipping hopefully.

If anyone wants a special edition or new print of any game let me know. The day after I buy one the update or new edition version is usually announced

:p
