In Terra Nova, players try to claim areas of land by moving control markers and placing fences. Each turn, a player must take three actions, first moving a control marker, then taking two further actions from these possibilities: moving a control marker (whether the same one or a different one) and/or
placing a fence next to a control marker that moved this turn.
Areas are scored once they're enclosed and contain no more than three types of landscape. Whoever has the majority of pieces in an area scores points based on the number of spaces and the number of types of landscape in the area, with fewer types scoring more points. Points are split in case of a tie. The game ends once all areas have been scored.
Terra Nova is a simplified version of the globally-acclaimed strategy game Terra Mystica.
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.
High-quality components and variable game elements make Terra Nova a game you can enjoy for many years to come!
