 Each player takes control of a nation struggling for power in the latter part of the 20th century. They build up their nation’s industry, commerce, and government by acquiring resources, building structures, and tapping sources of energy. The price of oil is going up, and nuclear energy is the wave of the future. "Energy Empire" is set in the same "universe" as "The Manhattan Project", but is a stand-alone game, not an expansion.

The major threat in Energy Empire is not war, but uncertain global impacts, that result from side effects of industrialization and pollution. Many actions come with a cost. So, as nations become more industrious, they also increase the amount of pollution in the environment. Careful use of science can mitigate the harmful effects of industry, and can also help avert global crises.

"Energy Empire" uses worker placement, tableau-building, and resource management mechanics. On each turn, a player can choose to either WORK or GENERATE. On a work turn, a player plays a single worker on the main board, then uses workers and energy to activate cards in their tableau. Players may spend energy to use an occupied space on the main board, so no spaces are ever completely blocked. On a Generate turn, players get to renew their supply of energy by rolling “energy dice” that represent nuclear, coal, oil, solar, and other forms of energy.

Stand alone game, part of The Manhattan Project line from Minion Games.

    4/5

    Fluide, nerveux, intuitif. Un très bon jeu de placement d'ouvriers qui fait la part belle aux combos.

    Dommage que le troisième tiers s'englue dans des longueurs inutiles.

    The Manhattan Project Energy Empire est un jeu fort proche de l’excellent Manhattan Project qui reste un très grand jeu un cran au-dessus de cette version qui souffre d’un panel trop réduit de stratégies gagnantes.  Pour le reste, Energy Empire est très agréable à jouer et offre des choix d’action variés et originaux.  Les mécaniques de pollution, de production d’énergies propres et sales sont excellentes et soutiennent le plaisir du jeu.  La variété des cartes offre une certaines variété des parties et permet aux joueuses d’être efficaces et d’optimiser leurs actions et ressources.  Energy Empire porte doublement bien son nom : la gestion de l’énergie est clé dans Manhattan Project Energy Empire et est en phase avec notre temps dont le sujet est un des défis majeurs pour notre génération dans le but de laisser une planète suffisamment propre à nos descendants.

Un super jeu de placement d'ouvriers que je placerai dans la catégorie lourd léger ;-) Ce n'est pas un jeu familial mais il reste abordable en moins de 90 mn. Aucun rapport avec Manhattan Project hormis le design graphique et les auteurs. Le matériel est somptueux, les tonneaux sont magnifiques, les tuiles très épaisses. Le jeu est vraiment plaisant, la mécanique est originale. Un must !

    Très bon jeu de placement d’ouvriers dans l’univers de Manhattan Project. L’historien se situe après le premier opus, les bombes ont ravage la terre et maintenant il est temps de nettoyer notre belle planète. Le coût des actions variera tout au long de la partie un peu comme dans le jeu Gueules Noires.

    Brilliant game ...a extremely well designed worker placement game and spiritual successor to the original Manhatten Project. Different design team though. The game scales very well for each number count. And as to be expected with Minion Games the component quality is excellent. Brilliant art and very well written rules. I wish I could give it a six star rating ...bravo !
