Brass Empire is a Steampunk deck-building card game. It was funded on Kickstarter earlier this year and started shipping in July. It is similar to games such as Ascension and Dominion, with a touch of Magic (combat), and it has some unique mechanics that distinguishes it from other deck builders. The players are different corporations who compete and battle against each other to expand their territory and grow their brass empire. During the game, they hire employees, construct buildings, and manufacture steam-powered machines. They also battle and sabotage each other.
