Homebrewers & Getting Equipped Expansion
Homebrewers is an engine-building and dice-trading game. Your dice represent the actions you can take, such as buying ingredients, participating in monthly events, adding flavors to your recipes, and of course, brewing beer! Homebrewers is played over eight months (eight rounds). Each month, you meet with the homebrewing club one weekend (trade phase) and take actions the other weekends (action phase).
You'll be crafting your own unique beer recipes in four categories (Ale, Porter, Stout, and IPA). Each time you brew a particular recipe, your quality level for that recipe increases.
You gain reputation in two main ways. First, by moving up the quality tracks for the four beer categories in order to win medals at Summerfest and Octoberfest, and second, by crafting your recipes to meet the particular tastes of a panel of judges at Octoberfest.
At the end of eight months, if you've gained the most reputation as your club's best brewer, you win!
In Getting Equipped Mini Expansion
Getting Equipped is a deck of 25 unique pieces of equipment, each one giving the brewer who installs it a special power. At the beginning of the game, players will draft the equipment cards, with each player selecting five that only they can chose from to install. Each player can only install four out of their five equipment cards, though. During the game, you can pay the dollar cost shown on an equipment card to install that piece of equipment in your garage. Installing the right mix of equipment and making good use of them can make all the difference in the battle for title of Best Homebrewer! Each game that you play will see you drafting and installing different equipment. With over 53,000 different combinations of 5 equipment cards that you can draft, every game you play will provide a unique challenge and strategy.
