This strategy game gives your students a chance to build their own colony in the new world of America! Players start out with a certain amount of gold in their treasury and build strategically to increase their number of colonists and the overall happiness and social stability of their colonies. They must also grow enough grain in order to feed their colonists in the winter months ahead.
Possible structures/locations include: an apothecary shop, barracks, blacksmith forge, church, college, factory, field, harbor, meetinghouse, mill, pillory, printing press, trading post, and warehouse. Each structure or location has a reward associated with it, and players must spend their limited gold strategically to achieve the best possible result.
Object of the Game: Build the colony with the most colonists and provide them with enough grain and social stability to survive through the winter.
This download includes: instructions, a list of possible buildings and their effects, and a student worksheet for tallying their building effects.
