In the dystopic 1930s, the industrial revolution pushed the exploitation of fossil-based resources to the limit, and now the only thing powerful enough to quench the thirst for power of the massive machines and of the unstoppable engineering progress is the unlimited hydroelectric energy provided by the rivers.

Barrage is a resource management strategic game in which players compete to build their majestic dams, raise them to increase their storing capacity, and deliver all the potential power through pressure tunnels connected to the energy turbines of their powerhouses.

Each player represents one of the four international companies who are gathering machinery, innovative patents and brilliant engineers to claim the best locations to collect and exploit the water of a contested Alpine region crossed by rivers.

Barrage includes two innovative and challenging mechanisms. First, the players must carefully plan their actions and handle their machinery, since both their action tokens and resources are stored on a Construction Wheel and will only be available after a full turn of the wheel. The better you manage your wheel, the earlier your resources and actions come back to you.

Second, the water flow on the rivers depicted on the board is a shared and contested resource. Players have to intercept and store as much of the water as they can, build dams (upstream dams are expensive but can block part of the water before it reaches the downstream dams), raise the dams to increase their capacity, and build long tunnels to channel the water to their powerhouses. Water is never consumed — its flow is just used to produce energy —, it is instead released back to the rivers, so you have to strategically place your dams to recover the water diverted by you and the other players.

Over five rounds, the players must fulfill power requirements represented by a common competitive power track and meet specific requests of personal contracts. At the same time, by placing a limited number of engineers, they attempt to enhance their machinery to acquire new and more efficient construction actions and to build and activate special unique-effect buildings to forward their own developing strategy.

Barrage: The Leeghwater Project

A new faction, the Netherlands, that uses Jan Leeghwater’s expertise in water management, adding even more water to your dams.

The External Works mechanic, a set of powerful tiles that can be obtained from a new action space. With them you'll be able to perform many actions, but be careful. To unlock the External Works power you'll need to burn the required amount of Concrete Mixers and Excavators rather than just assign them to the Construction Wheel.

The Personal Building mechanics. You’ll be able to use a combination of five Building tiles, each one with a different, powerful effect that can be activated by your engineers.

Two new Executive Officers designed to enhance the External Works and the Personal Buildings.

Three new Advanced Technology tiles dedicated to the construction of Personal Buildings.

Barrage: The Nile Affair Expansion

The Nile Affair is a new thematic map for 2-4 players with new mechanics (Irrigation).

The box includes 1 map board, 2 punchboards and the rules.

2 new Executive Officers distributed exclusively to Kickstarter backers, as part of the 5th player Expansion campaign.

Barrage: Executive Officers Pack B

Wu Fang:
You have a personal action space. When it is your turn, during the Action Phase, you can place 1 Engineer on this space to produce an amount of energy equal to the number of Water Drops currently held in your Dams. You can't add any bonus to this production, but you can use it to fulfill a Contract. The Water Drops stay where they are after this action.

Dr. Octavius:
When producing energy by activating one of your Powerhouses with a Production action, you can use any Water Drops from one or more of your Dams or Neutral Dams connected to the activated Powerhouse.
When using the German company ability, you can use this ability only with your first production.
