Brass is set in Lancashire, England in the 18th Century. The world is about to change from Medieval to Modern - also known as the Industrial Revolution. Can you take advantage of this time of transformation? What strategy will you follow? Build cotton mills? Develop new technologies? Dig canals? Produce coal, or maybe steel? There is no simple answer and the opportunities that arise will be different in each game you play as you move through the Canal and Railway periods, making the best return you can from your investments - just in time to snatch the next opportunity from under the noses of your rivals.
Brass is a tactical game in which you need to ensure that the industries you create are sustainable, making Brass unique and endlessly fascinating. It's an excellent game for experienced and dedicated game players as well as those interested in strategic multi-layered games of history.
