Aldabas: Doors of CartagenaPublisher: Grand Gamers Guild
Josh Mills 9
In Cartagena, Colombia, the doors speak. Not with words, but with the grandiose knockers that adorn them. In Spanish colonial times, the knockers announced your job and your social status with the design and detail. Lions, lizards, sea creatures, and hands proclaimed the homes' occupants as soldiers, nobles, fishermen, and clergy.
Aldabas is a puzzley tableau-builder in which you you seek to fill your neighborhood with the most influential citizens. On each turn, players will take actions to build their neighborhood or increase their wealth. Clever placement will unlock bonuses, but only if you build in the right way.
Those who keep the best company (and the fullest coffers) will surely be held in highest regard.
