MASTERPIECES! Beautifully designed by the same designer as Raccoon Tycoon and Lizard Wizard, among others, University Games’ latest tabletop game graces store shelves this month.
Mosaic: A History of Civilization (RRP $69.99 for 2-6 players, ages 12+) is more than a top quality game with high quality components and sleek graphics. It’s a surprisingly easy-to-learn, yet challenging strategy game that both new casual gamers and seasoned hobbyist gamers will enjoy.
Mosaic lands in the Civilization Building Game category with everything you would expect from one: Technologies, Wonders, Cities, Expansion, Resources, Goods, Golden Age Achievements, Governments, Leaders with unique perks and abilities, and more.
“Mosaic is not only a visually appealing game, but a nice introduction for those unfamiliar with the popular civilization-building strategy games,” said Craig Hendrickson, SVP of product development at University Games. “Mosaic goes beyond a simple game of chance, it’s a game of player choice and variable outcomes. The gameplay and stunning graphics make Mosaic an instant classic in the civilization-building category.
Recently, Mosaic has been praised:
- Mosaic was listed as #29 game ever by The Dice Tower. Tom Vassel from Dice Tower, one of the most critical and best game critics said: “I’ve been looking for a fast paced world civilization game for a long time. This (mosaic) is exactly what I was looking for!”
- “Mosaic keeps reminding me why I love it. Fast turns, variable strategies, great variety and great production values deliver a tableau builder that is as rewarding to play as it is accessible,” Alex Radcliffe, game critic and creator of BoardGameCo.
When University Games acquired Forbidden Games last year, the deal also included Mosaic, which is in development. Following the recent success of University Games’ introduction of Raccoon Tycoon, the company is pursuing further success in the hobby market and as an entry-level game.
“We’re excited to offer a refreshing new game,” continued Hendrickson. “Friends and families will be pleasantly surprised at the ease of learning and variety every time they play the sleek new game.”
