Gearworld: The Borderlands is a game of negotiation, conquest, resource management, and building in which two to four players compete to gain the favor of the Sky People for their tribe of scavengers in a post-apocalyptic landscape. Based on the classic board game Borderlands designed by Bill Eberle, Jack Kittredge, and Peter Olotka, Gearworld: The Borderlands has streamlined the original rules and re-imagined the game’s setting while retaining its predecessor’s spirit and core mechanics.
First released in 1982 by Eon Products, Borderlands was the original version of Gearworld. Join the BGG fan community for reviews, strategy tips, and conversations.
