A game of Pride, Intrigue an Prejudice in Victorian England.
You are the head of a respected but troubled family estate in Victorian England. As the family's fortunes begin to look up, your goal is to improve your estate in order to be in better standing within the Derbyshire gentry.
Obsession is a game in which players create their family and social ties, by building a deck of Victorian aristocracy; renovate their estate, by acquiring building tiles from a centralised builders' market; and manage the ever growing house staff, as a novel take on the worker placement mechanic.
Successfully hosting prestigious social activities, such as Fox Hunts, Music Recitals, Billiards, Political Debates, and Grand Balls, increases a player's wealth, reputation, and connections amongst the elite. In order to achieve these societal rewards, players must carefully plan to have the proper staff, in order to support guests as needed.
As players renovate their family's estate and prosper, they begin to compete for the hand of the most eligible young gentleman and/or lady in the county. The player who best fulfils the criteria of a desirable suitor, whilst accumulating victory points, will win the hand of the wealthy love interest, and the game.
For 1-4 players.
Bundle includes the base game; the 'Wessex' and 'Upstairs, Downstairs' expansions; Promotional Tiles; and the 'Useful Box'.
