In Automania, you run a car factory, trying to produce the most popular cars on the market. To achieve this, you buy tiles to upgrade and customize your factory, and hire specialist employees which provide a variety of advantages.

Central to the game are the factory boards: Each player has a factory with three assembly lines, and each line produces one type of car. You can put machine tiles along your lines to change the specifications of your cars. However, your three assembly lines intersect, so each machine tile placed might affect more than one type of car. Therefore you have to think carefully about where you put those machines.

When you produce a car, it must be shipped to one of two markets. Choosing the right market is crucial, as one market provides more money, while the other provides more prestige. Each market has some demands, and the better your car matches these demands, the more popular your car will be in that market. The most popular cars will sell first and reap the highest profits.

Automania has simple, streamlined rules, but enough tactical and strategic options to be labeled a gamer's game. It combines several new and unique mechanics to deliver a solid euro-style gaming experience.
