In the Borderlands, the world grew dark and the gears ground to a halt.
The Sky People retreated above the clouds and left the Borderlands to crumble and decay. The old machines are rusted and broken, and the scavengers of Gearworld live on scraps from the past and refuse from the Sky People's flying cities. The scavengers' only hope for a better life is to build great towering skyworks and gain the favor of the World Above, allowing them to outlast and outlive their rival scavenger gangs. In the Borderlands, survival is an exception.
Gearworld: The Borderlands is a game of conquest and survival in a post-apocalyptic world for 2-4 players. Seize territory, marshall resources, and defend yourself from your rivals. Reclaim the machines of old to build powerful weapons and enormous skyworks. Can you forge a new future from the rusted remnants of the past?
The game mechanics of Gearworld: The Borderlands are based on the original system first published in the classic board game Borderlands.
