Glass Road - Uwe Rosenberg

We created a digital version of the Glassroad boardgame for iPad and Android with Unity technology. In the game, you can play single or online multi-player mode as well.

In Glass Road, players will strive to produce glass and bricks over 4 building periods, each of which consist of three card-playing rounds. Glass and bricks are considered the major resources in the game, but players will also need to generate other materials in order to construct buildings (wood, clay, etc.). A deck of Specialist cards is used by each player to accomplish varying tasks related to the building process. There is a wide variety of buildings that can be built, each with its own abilities and/or scoring opportunities, and the player that best manages his resources, in order to build the most valuable buildings, will be the winner at the game’s end.

By the end of the 17th century, there were about 60 glass factories and the area in the eastern part of Bavaria (in southern Germany) gradually developed into an important center for glass making. Today, in the Bavarian Forest near the border with the Czech Republic, the Glass Road is a 150-mile long path that takes you to many sites where you can see both antique and new glass, as well as picturesque towns and villages with lovely landscapes. There are factories that use the most modern production techniques, as well as small artisan shops that rely on traditional glass making methods. There are also glass museums, where you can see interesting works from the past, and in glass galleries the latest glass innovations can be viewed.
