Expand your own camping ground with bluff, tactics and bribery. Many strategic options and lots of player interaction, for 1-4 players
A dream comes true: your own camping ground in the French highlands. And all goes well! A small plot of land, a reception and a website is all you need to receive some income in the next season. Satisfied you take a rest – but not for long, as your guests already leave for greener pastures!
They prefer your competitor’s camping ground: the ‘Clash d’Ardèche’ has begun. Buy the best sites, outsmart your competitors, bribe the mayor and create the camping ground of your dreams!
Clash d’Ardèche is a strategic area control game for 1-4 players. In approx. one hour you start from scratch and end with a thriving camping ground. Invest your money clever: buy the best facilities, air radio commercials and bribe the mayor at the right time to expand and flourish.
The bluffing element in the game is the time when you set the price you charge your guests. What price is set by your opponents? And how will their guests react to your price?
Because every player has a secret assignment with different victory conditions, players follow different strategies and the replayability is high.
The two core game mechanics are the price-quality steps and the bribe cards. The price-quality steps determine to which camping ground guests want to go. Influence those guests by building starbuildings on your camping ground and by charging them higher or lower prices. Because you don't know the price set by your competitors, this is the time when you have to bluff your way to the desired outcome.
The bribe cards are a combination of worker placement, card drafting and set collection-mechanics. Different combinations of cigars, jewellery and wine get you powerful favors from the mayor!
In the expert version another mechanic is added: the gameboard becomes a strategic puzzle as your guests want to camp nearby your sanitary, swimming pool or restaurant. Luckily you can let them use your neighbours' facilities!
Solo-play is now added: the friendly, but slightly corrupt mayor has gone megalomaniac in this solo-version of ‘Clash d’Ardèche’. His nice country house in the outskirts of the small French village is no longer any good, he now demands the island as the vicinity for his mansion!
