Fantasy Flight Games previews the contents of Gearworld: The Borderlands, an upcoming steampunk board game

Fantasy Flight Games gives us a look inside their upcoming stemapunk board game Gearworld: The Borderlands in their latest article.

From the preview:

Announced in February, Gearworld: The Borderlands is a game of negotiation, conquest, and construction in which two to four players compete to gain the favor of the Sky People for their tribe of scavengers in a post apocalyptic landscape. Based on the classic board game Borderlands by Bill Eberle, Jack Kittredge, and Peter Olotka, Gearworld: The Borderlands has re-imagined the classic game’s setting while retaining its spirit and core mechanics.

In today’s preview, we’ll look at the game’s economy, and how a seemingly simple ruleset (based on moving, trading, and gathering five key resources) belies a wealth of opportunities for negotiation and trade. We’ll also look at the ultimate goal of savvy trading: development tokens, which include the game-winning skyworks.
