Build.  Break.  Fix.

Prepare your mind to be transported to the past in a way you’ve never imagined!  Mill Makers is a balanced mix between casual party game and serious strategy game for 2-4 players.  You will compete in a three phase race to build a mill, add machines and workers, and ship goods worldwide.  How will you recover from the setbacks? What obstacles will you force your opponent to endure?  Mill Makers is a highly interactive game about early entrepreneurship that you’ll want to play again and again!

How do I win?

The first player to ship finished textiles to market wins the game.  To do this, a player must secure the means of production [Phase 1], stock their mill with machines and workers [Phase 2], and ship their finished goods to market [Phase 3].  The challenge is to complete all three phases faster than your opponent while avoiding various obstacles and setbacks.
