Top Mobile Board Game of 2015 by Board Game Geek and Board Game Quest
Top 10 Strategy Game. Acclaimed by players and awarded in 2007, 2008 and 2010!
Brass is a demanding economic game. An outstanding game about money and monopolies. Players take the roles of entrepreneurs attempting to make the most money from various industries during the Industrial Revolution. Each player needs to build an economic engine that surpasses all the others.
Industries are the key to success. Will you become a Cotton Magnate owning the most Cotton Mills in Lancashire? Or do you prefer selling Coal and Iron to others? Ports and Shipyards are key constructions as well, since the others cannot function without them in the long term.
Build canals and later rails to connect towns and cities. Only then can you benefit from all the industries built in the country, even those built by your opponents!
R&D is essential. The better developed industries you have, the more effective they are. Should others neglect development, your path to victory will be easier.
It’s not what you have produced, but the thing you sold that makes ‘brass’ (said with a
thick Yorkshire accent - ‘brass’ being a local term for money). Watch the markets carefully and sell at the proper time!
Use the produced supplies and activate Industries, upgrade rails, save money. The most effective entrepreneur is the winner.

Ratings and Reviews
My New Toilet Game
Nothing kills the time sitting in the washroom like a great eurogame port, and boy am I happy to find a solid app version of Brass. The art is lovely, the interface functional, and the game is, of course, fantastic. The only reason this app does not earn a full 5 star rating is that I, like a few other folks before me it seems, am bothered by the lack of an undo button available before finalizing your turn. Nothing ruins a good game of Brass like gambling it all for a shipyard in Birkenhead only to realize you’ve just accidentally spent 8 quid on port development. Weak a critique as that is, you should definitely still buy this port if you love Brass.
A Great Implementation of a Modern Board Game
This is a great implementation of the board game Brass: Lancashire by Martin Wallace. It is a tense economic board game where you try to outsmart your opponents - building coal mines, iron works, and cotton mills at the right time.
The hard part is that as you build across England, you can only access the cities connected to your network of canals and railways. When you spend more money than your opponents, you move after them in the following turn.
It ends up being a delicate balance of spending and saving money, while striking at the right time to score points.
The AI is good enough that I have problems beating them in a four-player game, but it really shines with multiplayer. I've been having fun playing with my board game group that moved across the country. The notifications sometimes don't work, so we use Discord to let the next player know when it's their turn.
We also noticed a minor display bug with the distant markets, but it doesn't really affect gameplay.
Overall a great game, even if there is somewhat of a learning curve.
Fantastic game but one gripe.
Me and my buddies LOVE this game. This iOS implementation is wonderful. Each week we create a few online games and here’s what we hate: new online games get placed at bottom of the game list. Why is that a problem? No search or scroll mechanics are available and that means 2 or 3 minutes of endless finger swipes just to get down to our game. Doing anything to fix that would be sweet.
I also wish played games could be reviewed and analyzed. Sadly, once game completes, there is no return to look over the board or statistics.
