Brass is set in 18th century Lancashire at the beginning of what would eventually be called the Industrial Revolution. It starts at the beginning of the Canal Age and ends after the development of railways. Players take the roles of entrepreneurs attempting to make the most money from the various industries of the time. Cotton dominates the game but players ignore the other industries such as coal mining and engineering at their peril. Note: While the rules have been rewritten for clarification in this 2nd printing, game play has not changed.
You must develop, build, and establish your industries and network so
that you can capitalize demand for iron, coal and cotton. The game is
played over two halves: the canal phase and the rail phase. To win the
game, score the most victory points (VPs), which are counted at the end
of each half.
