Welcome to Lancashire, England in the 18th Century. The world is about to change from Medieval to Modern. This change will be called the Industrial Revolution. Can you take advantage of this transformation? What's the best strategy? Build cotton mills? Develop new technologies? Dig canals? Produce coal, or maybe steel? There is no simple answer and the opportunities that arise will be different in each game you play as you move through the Canal and Railway periods, striving to get the best return you can from your investments ? hopefully just in time to snatch the next opportunity from under the noses of your rivals. Brass is a logistical game where you make money to make more money. However, you also need to make certain the industries you're creating are sustainable, which makes Brass unique and endlessly fascinating.
