Massachusetts Bay

Massachusetts Bay is a classic Euro-style worker placement game with an economic engine for up to 4 players. The concept is that you are a trading company in pre-Revolutionary War America that is acquiring raw goods within the New World and converting them to finished goods that you can then ship back to Europe for a profit. In addition, there is a wide variety of buildings that are available during the game that allow you to do other things with your finished goods, such as sell them locally within the colonies, trade them for other goods, or even use them to support the burgeoning rebellion. The game has a limited number of turns for you to maximize your profits and victory point collection (money is converted to points at the end of the game) before your colonial friends and neighbors decide to declare independence and the American Revolution begins!
