Pareto is a deep and challenging worker movement board game for 1-6 players. A typical game of Pareto takes between 1-3 hours, depending on player experience and how the game is played. Technically the game can be summerized as an area movement game, with a modular board, employing harvesting, production and trading as core mechanics. The game has multiple routes to victory.
If you prefer a slightly quicker game, with less rules and mechanics, you'll enjoy Harvester - our quick and fun family game.
In Pareto you start as a small entrepreneur with a small city office and a vehicle. Within a single year, 12 rounds, your goal is to expand your business and establish a sustainable and preferably environmentally friendly business.
Pareto consists of three boards: the marketplace, the shared land and an individual player property. From the initial concept developed in february 2010, all three elements have undergone major modifications. The player property started as a major asset, but we realized that over time, that this reduced oponent awareness. So, over time we managed to reduce the significance of the player properties and move player focus to the shared boards. These moves proved important for the social dimension of the game.
