In the 17th and 18th centuries, merchantmen sailing under the English flag dominated the seas and international trade. The Navigation Acts restricted foreign ships from partaking in the trade between England and her colonies.

 Richard Arkwright was one of the English inventors and businessmen who developed the first advanced machines (e.g. the Spinning Jenny and the Water Frame) and founded early factories. The goods produced in this manner were highly regarded in both the old country and by the Englishmen living in the colonies.

In the beginning, workers are required to run the factories. However, their expensive wages (£2 - £5) make machines (£1) very desirable. To increase a factory's production of goods, you may hire more workers or improve the technological level of your factory.

You determine the price of your goods for each of your factories. To enhance the chances of selling your goods to serve the demand in England, you can improve the technological level of your factories, increase the quality of your goods, and partake in distribution activities. The higher these factors are, the more successful you will be. However, the higher your prices, the less appealing your goods become.

  • This game was played and recommanded by Vin d'Jeu, here its opinion:


    Arkwright présente 3 défauts :  Le nombre de stratégies différentes est limité ce qui réduit la durée de vie du jeu.  Ses règles sont très complexes, ce qui oblige un joueur de bien les apprendre et ça prend du temps et ce qui rend l’explication des règles très long.  Enfin, le jeu en lui-même est très long (5 heures) et un peu trop long pour pouvoir tenir sur une soirée ce qui va indéniablement limiter le nombre de fois où on pourra le ressortir pour y jouer.  D’un autre côté, Arkwright est magnifique par ses différentes originalités, sa profondeur, ses choix difficiles, et la gestion sublime de son argent tant au niveau des dépenses que des recettes
