Pax Illuminaten is big game in a small box and small footprint. Here follows highlights of the design:
- Players will explore a map of “luminaries” (18th century figures) and build co-occupied networks of connections as they try to accomplish variable game-winning plots.
- The mix of victory conditions changes every game, with a high degree of interaction as players strive to outmaneuver (something fighting, sometimes collaborating) with their opponents to achieve the victory conditions first.
- Multi-purpose and multi-suited cards create deep decisions and tough calls. Cards are used for building the map and accomplishing goals, resource generation, actions, and resolving battles between players.
- Core mechanics include: area control, territory/network building, and hand management. Mix in a dose of negotiation and double-think/bluffing.
