A new world opens before you with untouched land as far as the eye can see. Your boat glides up a river and you examine the banks, appreciating the beauty of your new home. Expand your territory, cultivate your land and exploit your resources to construct the buildings that will make your settlement the most impressive in the region.
In The River, players struggle to make the most amazing settlement of this new world. In order to outmatch your opponents, construct valuable buildings and cultivate your river banks into harmonious and productive tracts. Reserve resources, enlarge your territory, and block your competitors… Every decision counts in this fast and streamlined tile-placement game. But be careful, some of your pioneers will decide to settle along the way and the lack of a workforce could cost you the victory.
But keep an eye on your opponents! If you aren’t careful they’ll claim the richest land before you even have a chance to set foot on the bank!
