The Glass Road is a 150-mile long path in Germany traversing through the Bavarian Forest near the border of the Czech Republic. It is a reminder of the great times of glass production. When you travel along the Glass Road today, you can still feel the heat of this handcraft that was omnipresent in many arborous areas in the Early Modern period…
In Uwe Rosenberg’s classic resource management and tile placement game, players take on the role of medieval glass-makers tasked with the production of glass and bricks. Over four building periods (game rounds), players will use their identical hands of 15 Specialists and attempt to outwit and outplay their opponents as they develop their landscape, gather resources, and erect prominent buildings and structures to keep their business and profits flowing.
Mastering the balance of knowing the best Specialist card to play and being flexible when playing it — together with assembling a clever combination of buildings — is the key to success in Glass Road!
