Nicodemus Gideon is retiring! To take his place, two assistants of the Dream Factory — that is, you and one other — will face off in a duel in which you repair machines and finish projects as quickly as possible in order to score 20 or more points first.
In Nicodemus , you return to the universe of Imaginarium in a game in which the two players must block one another repeatedly, with advantages swinging one way, then the other, with the slightest mistake possibly being fatal to your chances. On a turn, you will have a choice of two actions:
Play a machine card from your hand to the Bric-a-brac to gain charcoalium, produce a resource, or apply the effect of the machine.
Fix a machine from the Bric-a-brac to score points and place this machine in your workshop.
Every resource indicated in the production zone of machines in your workshop reduces the number of resources needed to repair subsequent machines. Additionally, fixing a machine can help you complete specific projects and win points.
