Game Mechanic: Engine Building

An engine-building game allows you to gradually construct and optimize a system or “engine” to generate resources, actions, or points over the course of the game. You’ll strategically acquire and combine cards, tiles, or other components that work together synergistically to improve their capabilities and efficiency. The objective is to build a powerful engine that drives progress and leads to victory.
