Life as a businessman is tough, life as a businessORC is tougher! In Orconomics, players dive into the world of business, a vortex of competition, a fight to be the best – with a lot of spite. Designed and developed by Economicus LTD and Igrology, the game was first published in Russia in 2018, and now a new edition is coming, in partnership with Ares Games.
Orconomics is a game for two to five players, competing against each other to establish Companies in ten industrial sectors. Each of them generates income or losses, and grant players abilities that can be used during the game. To win the game a player needs to be the first to found 10 companies on the game board, or even less if they successfully fulfilled some business quests of Greed, Rage or Dare.
The Second Edition of Orconomics will improve the game experience introducing a Quest system for victory condition, adds influence cards matching sector’s abilities, and introduces completely new startup mechanics.
