An innovative bidding and tile-laying game of balancing vampire and technological infrastructure from designer J.B. Howell, with evocative cyber-gothic art from Mihajlo “The Mico” Dimitrievksi! The Vampire Council is looking to hire a new City Planner to turn Transylvania, into the world’s newest tech haven! You and your rivals are competing to land the job. Create a diverse cityscape for vampire and animal life, provide plenty of bloodbanks for your citizens, secure contracts and bring aboard the best specialists in the industry. The race is on to present to the Vampire Council the best plan to turn Transylvania into SiliconVania! In SiliconVania, players bid on building tiles and multi-use specialists that provide either one-time bonuses, or end-of-game scoring.  Players take the building tiles they win, and place them in their 4x4 city grids, juggling different scoring opportunities, and collecting vampire and pet meeples that are looking for places to live! Each round you will: Bid on a pair of building tiles to add to your grid. Be careful, once they’re down, they are very hard to move! Bid a Specialist card for its ability, and to get a new specialist card. Cards with stronger bids have weaker abilities, and vice versa! Commit a Specialist card for its scoring condition, earning points, but revealing to your opponents which kinds of buildings you really need! The game ends after 8 rounds, when everyone’s city grid will be full. You’ll get points for having each of the 7 building types, a wide network of blood banks, and proper housing for the vampire meeples your specialists bring to town. The vampires also want to make sure all this technological advancement doesn’t destroy the biodiversity of their home, so you’ll get points for having a variety of animals and animal meeples on your tiles. Your specialists also provide special scoring conditions, like the Engineers look for columns with four different building types, or the Nobles who want blood banks adjacent to mausoleums! Players will also be competing to develop innovations, find artifacts, and build castles and train stations to make their cities even more attractive to the rising vampire population. Combining bidding, tile-laying, hand management, resource management and more, with smooth gameplay, Siliconvania is one you’ll want to keep playing for the rest of your endless, immortal lives!
