How does this game differ from the rest of the Nova Suecia games?
In spite of the civilization theme, Explorers & Exploiters is mostly an abstract game
about connecting and disconnecting parts on a board.
However, the mechanism where all units - explorers and barbarians - are shared among the players
reminds of the balance between cooperation and competition known from other games and there is also
hidden information as only the exploring player knows what's under a tile.
The absence of random mechanisms that characterize the other Nova Suecia
games is very prominent in Explorers & Exploiters.
What makes Explorers & Exploiters different from other games?
The shared units of opposing sides (explorers and barbarians) is seldom seen in games.
Add to that the constantly changing game board where tiles are flipped back and forth,
connecting and disconnecting settlements with resources, and you have a game with unique challenges.
