The Age of Machines is dawning.
Four small nations plot to expand as they rally courageous explorers, cunning leaders, brilliant minds, and powerful magicians. It will take a strong economy, vast lands, and wondrous new technology to grow from a fledgling city-state. Will you lead the industrious humans, the toad engineers, the scholarly Cresarians, or the clever hogmen to victory?
Corner the market on goods like machine parts or bottled demons. Research steam-age technology and recruit mercenaries to control the continent. Build sea-going schooners or cloud-cutting airships to reach faraway lands and flying islands. Your cities have a limited capacity, so you must decide what to keep and what to demolish when building advanced structures.
City of Iron is a board game for 2-4 players. The goal of the game is to control the most of various, rare goods.
