About the event
Unboxing Thursdays we open, learn and play games as we add them to our library.
This Thursday we are playing and learning Lorenzo Il Magnifico & Snow Time.
Lorenzo il Magnifico: 7.9
Lorenzo de' Medici, also known as "Lorenzo il Magnifico" (Lorenzo the Magnificent), was one of the most powerful and enthusiastic patrons of the Italian Renaissance.
In Lorenzo il Magnifico, each player takes the role of the head of a noble family in a city during the Italian Renaissance to gain more prestige and fame — that is, victory points (VP) — than anyone else. To do so, you send your family members to different areas of town, where they can obtain many achievements. In one location, they get useful resources; in another development cards that represent newly conquered territories, sponsored buildings, influenced characters, or encouraged ventures; and somewhere else they activate the effects of their cards.
Family members are not identical. At the beginning of each round, you roll three dice to determine their value. You must choose carefully where to send your most valuable family members...
You can gain VP in several ways, and you must also pay attention to your relations with the Church. The game is divided into three periods, each formed by two rounds; at the end of each period, players must show their faith, and whoever hasn't prayed enough will suffer hard penalties. After six rounds, you calculate your final score, and the player with the most VP wins.
Snow Time: 6.5
Snow is falling! Winter is finally here!
A joust is in the making: let the show begin!
You play as children, representing your village, and face your opponents in a joyful competition around a marvelous tree.
Anticipate other players’ moves and guess their intentions. Be crafty, collect strange fruits, and dodge the snowballs!!
Fruits appear randomly on the board at different levels of the tree.
The players will try to seize them and therefore will have to choose on which branch they want to climb.
Be careful though, a player will only be able to harvest fruits if he is alone on a branch, and if there is not a player in ambush just above him!
Thus, He will try to anticipate the choices of his opponents since otherwise a squabble will start, which will inevitably end up by the loss of cards, unless one of the brawlers dominates the fray.
Finally, the cleverest player will score a point for avoiding the fight by being the lowest in the tree.
Between racing game, bluff, and double guessing.
