June 2, 2022 – Publisher Capstone Games has announced a brand new Streamlined Terra Mystica Game Terra Nova. The brand new creation from newcomer designer Andreas Faul takes the original area control game and takes it down to more manageable levels. The game is expected to debut with a $54.95 MSRP at Spiel in Essen with the worldwide release shortly thereafter on October 26, 2022.
In Terra Nova, players choose from 10 different factions, each with different abilities. Spread out on the central map as skillfully as possible and achieve certain goals from round to round. In peaceful competition with the other factions, erect buildings and settle new territories. Use your faction’s special abilities in a clever way to control the largest territory at the end, and win with the most points.
A game of Terra Mystica has been known to go 4 hours plus. This new take on the games has a game time estimation of 60 – 90 minutes.
This new version of the game comes ten years after the original Terra Mystica was released in 2012 and five years after the successful sci-fi implementation the Gaia project released in 2017. Both games are both still incredibly popular but they are long and intense, making them not for everyone. This new title looks to broaden out that base, with the gameplay ideals that so many have been attracted to over the years.
