Description

The Curators board game (designed by Tove JomerPablo JomerJacob Westerlund) is a Euro-style, tile-laying game for 1-4 players in which players build museums and their collections to attract visitors.

Your job as curator is to expand the museum and its collection. With help from your employees you will build new wings and collect objects to put on display in the museum.

The employees are represented by five chips that are used to determine what different actions you may take in the game. Select your action from the face up chips, flip the chip over to show you have used it. This will reveal a different action on the other side which you can use at a later time.

On the other hand, if you ever have two of the same action available on your turn you may choose to double up. This means that on a single turn you can flip two chips and do double the amount of work.

During play you acquire loan contracts for famous objects, like ‘the dice tower of a Roman soldier’ or ‘the skull of the neanderthal man’, from other museums. To score the points for these objects you need to complete a tetris like puzzle of color and space matching.

When the Curators board game ends only one museum will stand as the victor and take home the ‘Museum of the Year Award’.

    Curators is a family level puzzle game where you are trying to score points from goal cards you pick up during the game the theme being that you are trying to attract customers to your museum where you are also building exhibition halls and acquiring exhibits for them. You have 5 double sided action tokens showing 5 different actions and on a turn you choose an action type on show take that action then flip the token(s) used (different actions are on the reverse), you start off with a single action but most times you will get a double action. This mechanism is very nicely melded into the game where the actions are collect money, collect exhibits from a dig site, but exhibits from an auction house, extend your museum and exhibit your actions. Obviously these actions need to be done in a certain order as you cannot exhibit what you have not yet collected and it is getting the timing right that makes this an interesting game, it has a similar depth as Traintopia.
