Factory 42 is a resource management game using worker-placement and a cube tower with new approaches to these mechanics and continues the set of games based in the world of Zanziar. Two to five players compete as Dwarven factory foremen, guiding their workers through the manufacturing process and earning rewards from the fulfillment of government orders. Bureaucracy hinders the process, affecting the supply of materials to the common resource pools and punishing foremen for failing to fulfill orders. The factory production line has to meet quotas, undercut rivals and improve tools.... which may require some shady deals.
Life is tough for a Dwarf on the production line, especially for the team leaders.
