Factory 42 is a worker-placement game set in the world of Zanziar. Two to five players compete as Dwarven factory foremen guiding their workers through the manufacturing process and earning rewards from the fulfillment of government orders. But bureaucracy hinders the smooth flow of the factory affecting the supply of resources and penalising foremen for failing to fulfill orders. Factory quotas must be met, rivals undercut, tools improved and shady deals made. The factory production line has quotas to be met, rivals to undercut, tools to improve, and shady deals to be made.
Life is tough for a Dwarf on the production line, especially for the team leaders.
