Tapestry – An interwoven review.


Lead a unique civilization to greatness through cultural and technological advances.

Tapestry is a two-hour game for 1-5 players designed by Jamey Stegmaier.

Create the civilization with the most storied history, starting at the beginning of humankind and reaching into the future. The paths you choose will vary greatly from real-world events or people — your civilization is unique!

In Tapestry, you start from nothing and advance on any of the four advancement tracks (science, technology, exploration, and military) to earn progressively better benefits. You can focus on a specific track or take a more balanced approach. You will also improve your income, build your capital city, leverage your asymmetric abilities, earn victory points, and gain tapestry cards that will tell the story of your civilization.

Tapestry is the perfect gateway into civilization games. It provides players with streamlined but strategic game play. I was able to learn and teach the game in under a half hour with the help of the player aids and simple, well laid out rule book.

Without a doubt, the civilizations in Tapestry will lead you down a different path every time you sit down to play the game. Some give you a more focused direction while others can be more flexible, but in either case, taking advantage of your unique ability will lead you down the path of prosperity.

Now, let Richard Ham from Rahdo’s Gameplay Runthrough give you a demonstration on the game. His videos are packed with monologues, decisions making(unbiased) and forward thinking strategies.

And after that… His thoughts on the game…
