A 15-30 minute 2 player card game that brings the War of Currents to light in an easy-to-learn, fast-playing, but seriously strategic game. Players take control of Nikola Tesla or Thomas Edison and build a company that claims projects in regions around the United States, advance the latest technologies, engage in a propaganda war around AC and DC technologies, and buy stock shares in smaller electricity companies. During the game players bring famous luminaries of the time into their company that each offer unique actions and abilities. The winner is the company that wins two of the three main systems - controlling regions with projects, being ahead in the PR race, and holding the most valuable stock portfolio. Tesla and Edison each have a special auto-win condition that players can trigger during the game to win right away.
While Tesla vs. Edison: Duel has all of the aspects introduced in our hit big box offering Tesla vs. Edison, it is designed for light-to-medium weight gamers to enjoy. Fans of the current game will love how this fits into a super fast play window that is easy-to-play. And, people who found the 90-120 minutes and larger component presence of the original game will enjoy being transported into the roaring 1880's and experience what the War of Currents was all about in an easy-to-play way!
