Tapestry Board Game Review

In Tapestry the board game, you work to create a civilization with a vast history. Your civilisation will start at the beginning of humankind and progress into the future. You will create a civilisation that is unique and different from world history.

During the game, your civilisation will progress on 4 advancement tracks (science, technology, exploration, and military).

Advancement on each track gives you different rewards and unlocks abilities that allow you to score more points. For example,  ability to build different type of buildings in your capital city, unlocking armories that allow you to control more territories.

As time progresses, your income will increase, you will build capital cities, gain and utilise unique abilities to develop your unique civilisation.

Tapestry gets you to think about the following:

  • which civilisation power to choose at the start of the game
  • how to best utilise your civilisation’s unique powers
  • how to efficiently focus on the 4 different advancement tracks so that it maximises your prosperity and capabilities
  • which territories to explore
  • management and spending of your resources based on what you want to do in future turns
  • whether to change in strategic choices depending on your opponent’s advancements
  • how to maximise the unique abilities of tapestry cards in your hand

Turns are quick in Tapestry. While the combat (taking over of territory) is minimal, it creates some level of interaction with other players. The different Tapestry cards and unique Civilisations gives a unique experience for each new game. Progression through the various advancement track may feel repetitive and minor due to the similar reward structure for fulfiling the condition.
