Sanitation Nation – A Worker Placement Board Game

It’s a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it.

Summary

Sanitation Nation is a strategic worker placement board game for 2 to 5 players, where players, acting as garbage company owners, compete against one another to service the different cities on the game board with garbage collection. Players compete secretly at auction to obtain contracts for cities, hoping to just outbid their opponents. Players must at the same time attempt to secure neighboring cities to those they already have, thereby making their collection route more efficient and achieving bonus points. But, careful! When contracts run out, the cities will go up for auction once more, allowing players to create new or break up old routes. Who will use their cunning to cheaply secure desired contracts and who will be left in no man’s land, and broke to boot?

Sanitation Nation is in the prototype phase has been submitted to the Ravensburger Verlag.

Later in the game - players have secured many cities, as can be seen on the main game board. Orange seems to be doing well, with three adjacent cities and five in total.

A newer version of the game board that I made at the request of the publisher. This version is larger, has a scoring track around the board, and has a week counter, which helps with the maintenance of the game.
