Description Edit | History

Grand Cru is an economic strategy game for 2-5 wine enthusiasts.

Grand Cru represents the best locations for a vintner to create and cultivate wine. But creating great wine and running a successful vineyard requires much more than just a great location. Patience, dedication and a good understanding of the market are all needed to be profitable.

As ambitious vintners, the players attempt to run new vineyards located at the best sites available. As with many new businesses, starting up is very difficult. For cultivation and operating of their new businesses, the players will need to rely on loans from the local bank. Money is tight and wise investments will also help with the costs of the business. There is a need to observe the cellar and balance long-term strategies against short-term interests for running a successful vineyard. Far-sighted planning and skillful timing are keys to success.

The game ends when the first player is able to pay off all of his loans. Only then do the players find out which vintner has the most profitable vineyard to win the game. A votre santé!

7 Grand Cru Reference by Yoki
This is a 3-page, landscape (A4) formatted PDF with a complete summary of the game and its rules. The reason I went with a landscape layout is that I print this back to back on two sheets. I print aladdinsdad's great "Improvement Tiles Summary" as the back of my 1st page (with the game overview), and then print my two pages summarizing the game's 2 phases on opposite sides of the second sheet. With these two sheets laminated and put inside my game box, I'm ready to teach and run this game at the drop of a hat.
