A love letter to Portugal!
EGGERTSPIELE is pleased to announce the next amazing title to our catalog – Coimbra! Coimbra is authored by acclaimed designers, Virginio Gigli and Flaminia Brasini, and illustrated by the famed artist, Chris Quilliams. Set in the 15th and 16th century, Portugal thrives under its leading role during the Age of Discovery. Nestled in the heart of Portugal, the city of Coimbra serves as a cultural center of the country. As the head of one of Coimbra's oldest houses, you seek to earn prestige by deepening relationships with nearby monasteries, promoting the local universities, and funding the expeditions of the era. To reach this goal, you must vie for the favors of the city's most influential citizens, even if you must offer a bit of coin or some protective detail.
Coimbra introduces an innovative dice mechanic - where the dice drafted each round will be utilized in multiple different ways and will have an impact on many aspects of their decision making. While there are many paths to victory, the best of players will be always seek to optimize their opportunities with every roll of the dice. Combined with ever changing synergies of the citizens, expeditions, and monasteries - no game of Coimbra will ever be the same!
While navigating the intricacies of Portuguese society could take decades, a game of Coimbra is expected to take 60 - 90 minutes and is recommended for players aged 14 and older.
Coimbra will be released on August 2, 2018 at GenCon. Pre-Orders will open on April 16, 2018 with an exclusive promotional item available for purchase when ordering directly from EGGERTSPIELE.
