Tenpenny Parks from Thunderworks Games

Thunderworks’ latest contribution—Tenpenny Parks—shows how strong the publisher can be, even outside of their comfort zone. Much of their catalog of games has a fantasy theme with strong focus on adventure, exploration, and roleplaying. Tenpenny Parks is another release that deviates from that mold and really sticks the landing.

Gather your team of bankers, realtors, contractors, builders, and arborists. Construct rides through the stone age, the American old west, the age of fantasy, the cosmos of space, and the depths of the sea.

Inspire thrill, awe, and joy in your guests to earn their tickets, for whoever attracts the most visitors at the end of the race will be awarded Fairview’s Golden Key!


Gameplay

In Tenpenny Parks you have five rounds (months) to transform the humble town of Fairview into the home of the world’s greatest theme parks.

Each month, players take turns placing workers on the game board to take actions like removing trees, building concessions and attractions, and buying more property to make their growing theme parks as attractive to Visiting People (VP tokens) as possible.

Construct rides through the stone age, the American old west, the age of fantasy, the cosmos of space, and the depths of the sea!

At the end of each month, rewards are given to the player with the park that best exemplifies raw emotions (Thrill, Awe, and Joy). After five months, the player with the most VP tokens wins!
