Description Edit | History

In The Palaces of Carrara, players want to buy the marble from this famous region of Italy as cheaply as possible – but any reduction in price will benefit opponents as well. Maybe you'll find it profitable to instead invest in the buildings created from this marble? Maybe it'll be more worthwhile to grab the expensive raw material when bigger buildings in town turn out to be not so lucrative?

The game includes two levels of play: beginner and advanced. Co-designer Wolfgang Kramer says, "To understand the game, it's important that players play the beginner version to learn the game mechanisms and how they mesh together."

4 Extra Scoring Card (Showing 5 coins = 1 VP, other objects = 1 VP, Tie-Breaker)
In a game for victory points I find it a big misery not to see ALL victory points you can gain at the end of the game. In Carrara there is a nice scoreboard, but the information about the rules "5 coins = 1 VP" and "Each other object = 1 VP" are missing on it. So I made this card for you to print and put it on or beneath (when playing with expansion) the scoreboard.

15 Expansion Cards into English
Print cards on photo paper and cut each card out. Place the original card into a sleeve and place the English cut-out on the reverse side. These cards are just a tad smaller than the original cards but after placed inside the sleeves it's not noticeable.

19 The Palaces of Carrara Reminders.pdf
Once, when teaching Lancaster after not having played it in ages, I made a critical error that I didn’t discover until after the game. I said never again and since then I make a “Reminders” sheet for all of my games. The intent was not to cover all the rules but to make note of those little things that can be forgotten. Most of the Reminders start with the set-up and ends with the end of game conditions and scoring. I print them on cardstock and trim away the excess, making an easy to use sheet. They are also a good framework to use when teaching the games. If you click on my user name, then click on Contributions, then go down to Files you can check out my Reminders for all of my games. Enjoy.

48 The Palaces of Carrara - Rules Summary (English, 2-pages)
I like having condensed rules of a game to remind myself of the rules without having to re-read the entire rule book. This is something I put together for myself. Hopefully, someone else will also enjoy it. Feedback is welcome. Disclaimer: This document is my own creation and is in no way officially associated with The Palaces of Carrara of its publishers.
