An elegant worker placement game by Snowdonia designer Tony Boydell, where players compete in the grand adventure of the Himalayean Railway and growing of Darjeeling tea.
In turns, players secure slots to perform actions such as laying railway tracks, excavating tea estates, securing contracts, harvesting tea leaves, acquiring equipement or even brewing Chai tea to motivate your thirsty workers to undertake harder labour. Alubari stands apart in the genre thanks to its original and immersive theme and its smooth yet deep mechanics. Several core features strengthens its replayability: the weather which impacts the effectiveness of actions, the ever-changing availability of ressources, and the actions regularly triggered by the game itself.
