A Journey Back to the Golden Era of Comics

In ‘Age of Comics: The Golden Years’, players are transported back to the rich comic book culture that thrived from 1938 to 1954.

This tabletop worker placement game has been designed by the creative minds of Giacomo Cimini and Sónia Gonçalves, and brought to life with the stunning illustrations by Laura Guglielmo. Thanks to the support of over 4000 Kickstarter backers, it was successfully funded in October 2022.

Join fellow enthusiasts in running your own comic publishing company, navigating through the challenges and excitement of the Golden Age of Comics.

‘Age of Comics: The Golden Years’ accommodates 1-4 players for a gameplay duration of 60-110 minutes.

Players are tasked with earning Victory Points (VPs) through strategic comic publishing, amassing a loyal fan base, and smart placements.

As the comic culture evolves over five immersive rounds, the player with the highest VPs emerges as the victor, having built a comic empire of renown.

The game includes the base game and two mini-expansions, and the captivating Solo Mode designed by Nestore Mangone.
