• 3/19/2019

<p>Last week we’ve received our early reviewer copy of <span>Imnia </span>– a first tabletop game by BlackSea Interactive. After some hours spent playing we could finally put together a proper review. So how is the game? We’ve collected all of our impressions below. Enjoy!</p><h2><span>A Race for Victory</span></h2><p>Imnia has a race-like feeling. The player who manages to build the first wonder wins. As the building process starts only after you reach the maximum level of influence – the game becomes naturally divided into 2 parts. The first consists of <span>building your engine and progressing through the influence track</span>, while the second focuses on <span>generating the currency necessary to fund your wonder</span>. You need a total of 42 currency units paid in three steps (7, 14 and 21).</p><p></p><p>To begin building your wonder you need to amass<span> 14 points of Influence</span>. You get them by creating buildings and when a rival uses one of your own. Also: some quests offer influence as a reward.<span> Influence can also be decreased</span>. This happens when you fail to protect your people before the winter arrives, when you visit your rival’s building or ... <a href="https://kick.agency/news/imnia-kickstarter-board-game-review/">learn more </a></p><p></p>
