In Troyes, recreate four centuries of history of this famous city of the Champagne region of France. Each player manages their segment of the population (represented by a horde of dice) and their hand of cards, which represent the three primary domains of the city: religious, military, and civil. Players can also offer cash to their opponents' populace in order to get a little moonlighting out of them—anything for more fame!
Make your underlings:
work on the cathedral
bustle about the city
and other such tasks that are below your family's stature
A "script" to be followed by the person explaining the game to new players. It aims to develop the group's understanding from first principles (theme of the game and what the goal is), through an overview of components and game terminology (when first encountered, new game terms are Italicised), followed by the mechanics of the game. Game End conditions and Scoring are followed by a "set-up" cheat sheet (to be followed before embarking on the explanatory script, so that the explainer has a pre-seeded game to refer to).
The aim of this file is to enable a new player/host who is unfamiliar with the game - or at least, not familiar enough to feel confident in "winging it" - to impart all relevant information in the most efficient and precise manner possible.
El objetivo es guiar a los jugadores, durante la partida, sobre las múltiples formas de puntuación al final del juego; además, ayudar a los jugadores a evitar errores durante la misma. He añadido una pequeña descripción histórica de los personajes con el fin de dar a los jugadores una breve idea de quienes fueron, y cómo su influencia histórica se conecta con las mecánicas y el tema del juego. Incluye a los personajes de la expansión "Las Damas de Troyes". Espero que les sea de utilidad.
This is meant to guide players, during the game, about the multiple scoring ways that will take effect at the end of the game. Also, this could help players to avoid mistakes during the final scoring step. I've added a little (very simple indeed) historical description of each character in order to give players a brief approach of what those Great Persons did, and how their historical influence is conected with the game mechanisms-theme. This includes the characters of the expansion "The Ladies of Troyes". I hope you find this useful.
