It’s a Wonderful World is a card drafting and engine building game for 1 to 5 players.

Dear citizens of the 5 Empires! Today is a great day, as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the end of the Great Wars. What a joy to live in a world where each decision of our beloved, wise, and charismatic Leaders is motivated by the people's happiness. What a Wonderful World of peace and progress we have built!

In It’s a Wonderful World, you lead an expanding Empire. You must choose the path that will enable you to develop faster and better than you competitors. The game lasts 4 rounds.

Game Play

Each round, players draft 7 cards, then choose which ones to recycle immediately for Resources, and which to keep for construction that will produce Resources every round and/or gain victory points. When a card is fully built, it’s added to your Empire, increasing your Empire's production capacity each round. The production phase, however, works in a specific order. So you'll have to plan your constructions carefully!

At the end of the 4th round, the player with the most Victory Points wins the game.
