The Networks


The Networks is a medium weight, card drafting economic strategy game for 1-5 players developing the best TV network.

You are the owner of a new television network. All you have are three awful public access shows, a small amount of cash, and endless ambition. Plus it looks like you’re not the only new TV network in town…

Can you snatch up the best Shows with the most popular Stars and the most lucrative Ads? Can you get enough Shows of the same Genre to make your network stand out? Can you best utilize the powers of the handy Network Cards?

In The Networks, you will start with three awful public access shows and some money. As the game goes on, you will be canceling these shows and replacing them with better and better shows.

Shows will have varying prerequisites of stars and ads; you’ll want to secure those before developing your shows. stars and ads have their own sets of conditions; they perform better on certain types of shows or in certain time slots.

Shows age each season. They usually plunge in popularity at some point, so you must be quick to replace them with fresh new shows whenever you can.

The Networks rewards planning and strategy, but you can’t ignore the other players. They may beat you to the show you were planning on getting. Timing is crucial!
