We designed Trekking through History for gamers and non-gamers to play together. The goal was to make a game inviting for non-gamers, but with a little subtlety under the hood for gamers.
In the game, you go on a three-day tour of human history, traveling thousands of years in a time machine to experience great moments from our past.
The game takes place over three rounds, each representing one day of your trip. Each day, you visit a series of historical events, spending a different number of hours at each.
On each turn, you choose to visit one historical event, and spend a certain number of hours doing it. Doing so will yield benefits, like checking off items on your itinerary for points, and earning Time Crystals so you can bend the space-time continuum on future turns.
Along the way, you’ll also score points for visiting historical events in chronological order.
The player with the most points after three rounds wins.
