Welcome to the hobby of homebrewing!
You’re a new homebrewer, looking to make all sorts of new and interesting beers in the comfort of your own home, and you’ve just joined a local homebrew club. Now it's time to have a friendly competition with your fellow homebrewers and see who can become the club's best brewer!
Homebrewers is a competitive game for two to five players designed by Ben Rosset (Brew Crafters, Brew Crafters Travel Card Game, Between Two Cities) & Matthew O'Malley (Diner, Between Two Cities, The Princess Bride: A Battle of Wits) and illustrated by Adam Rebottaro, artist of the award-winning game Sentinels of the Multiverse, and SaRae Henderson.
Homebrewers is an engine-building and dice-trading game. Your dice represent the actions you can take, such as buying ingredients, participating in monthly events, adding flavors to your recipes, and of course, brewing beer!
Homebrewers is played over eight months (eight rounds). Each month, you meet with the homebrewing club one weekend (trade phase) and take actions the other weekends (action phase).
You'll be crafting your own unique beer recipes in four categories (Ale, Porter, Stout, and IPA). Each time you brew a particular recipe, your quality level for that recipe increases.
You gain reputation in two main ways. First, by moving up the quality tracks for the four beer categories in order to win medals at Summerfest and Octoberfest, and second, by crafting your recipes to meet the particular tastes of a panel of judges at Octoberfest.
At the end of eight months, if you've gained the most reputation as your club's best brewer, you win!
