Relive the majestic Renaissance period in Masters of Renaissance: Lorenzo Il Magnifico – The Card Game.
Masters of the Renaissance is a new engine building game that recreates the atmosphere of Lorenzo il Magnifico with simple rules and a limited duration.
On your turn, you draw a Development card, take resources from the market or activate Development cards on your board. Each Development card allows you to transform resources by moving them from your limited depots to the unlimited bank space; in this way you will be able to accumulate many resources to purchase the most powerful cards.
As in Lorenzo il Magnifico, you will have to follow the requests of your leaders to gain access to their powers.
The game uses an engine building mechanism, with which players will develop their properties to increase their faith and military power to generate victory points.
Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization is the new edition of Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization, with many changes small and large to the game's cards over its three ages and extensive changes to how military works.
Through the Ages is a civilization building game. Each player attempts to build the best civilization through careful resource management, discovering new technologies, electing the right leaders, building wonders and maintaining a strong military. Weakness in any area can be exploited by your opponents. The game takes place throughout the ages beginning in the age of antiquity and ending in the modern age.
One of the primary mechanisms in TTA is card drafting. Technologies, wonders, and leaders come into play and become easier to draft the longer they are in play. In order to use a technology you will need enough science to discover it, enough food to create a population to man it and enough resources (ore) to build the building to use it. While balancing the resources needed to advance your technology you also need to build a military. Military is built in the same way as civilian buildings. Players that have a weak military will be preyed upon by other players. There is no map in the game so you cannot lose territory, but players with higher military will steal resources, science, kill leaders, take population or culture. It is very difficult to win with a large military, but it is very easy to lose because of a weak one.
Victory is achieved by the player whose nation has the most culture at the end of the modern age.
