Releasing October 25, 2019
What if the formation of Earth had gone differently?
This game designed by John D Clair, with the art of Sabrina Miramon, and graphic design by Matt Paquette explores that “what if?” Josie tried this game over the weekend with the Alderac staff, and was blown away by it’s combination of strategic engine building and excellent components. Ecos: First Continent will be available at Just Games early, and you can check it out on our demo table and put in a preorder today!
As always, prepaid preorders earn double member reward points.
In Ecos players are forces of nature molding the planet, but with competing visions of its grandeur. You will have the chance to create a part of the world, similar but different to the one we know. Which landscapes, habitats, and species thrive will be up to you.

Game play in Ecos is simultaneous and caters to 2-6 players. Each round one player will reveal Element tokens from the Element Bag, giving all players the opportunity to complete a card from their tableau and shape the continent to their own purpose. Elements that cannot be used can be converted into Energy cubes or additional cards in hand or added to your tableau, to give you greater options as the game evolves.
Mountain ranges, jungle, rivers, seas, islands and savannah, each with their own fauna, all lie within the scope of the players’ options.
