Ages 14+
1-5 Players

Race against other players as you try to build the most efficient set of factories in the shortest amount of time.

Carefully manage your blueprints and train your workers. Discover quirky combinations of factories and puzzle out the best placement of all your people. And above all, manufacture as many goods as possible!

Fantastic Factories is a dice placement, engine building tabletop game for 1 to 5 players and takes 45 to 60 minutes to play. Players build a set of factories into their compound and then roll dice to use as workers. With over 35 different blueprints, you can discover endless inventive and creative ways your factories can work together. 

Different factories have different worker requirements. Some require a pair of matching dice. Some require a specific value. You aren't stuck with what you roll, though. With training facilities you can manipulate the values of your dice in order to figure out the optimal placement of all your workers! Each turn is a satisfying puzzle to solve. 

  • 28 dice (16mm) (4 red, 4 blue, 4 green, 4 yellow, 4 purple, and 8 white)
  • 50 resource tokens representing energy
  • 30 resource tokens representing metal
  • 85 goods tokens
  • 4 tool label tokens
  • 78 blueprint cards
  • 18 contractor cards
  • 1 first player token

Fantastic Factories comes with over 40 unique blueprint and contractor cards, ensuring each game is a fresh and new experience with lots of replayability.

Fantastic Factories supports playing solo. You still get to build awesome combinations of factories and strategize where best to place your workers. The only difference is you will be competing against a simple but efficient opponent known as "The Machine". The Machine is easily managed and guided by dice rolls and can be adjusted for varying levels of challenge.
