[FORUM REVIEW] The rise and fall of Renaissance nobility!

March 20th - via:
I really like Among Nobles. It combines smooth euro mechanics with a strong theme that is cleverly integrated in the mechanics. When you're playing you constantly discover small mechanical details, that match the theme. The game was already good when I first tried it two years ago, but the work they've put into streamlining the user interface has really paid off to not only make it pretty, but also very functional. A glance across the table will let you decipher 95% of the information, which to me is paramount in these types of games. Despite the core of the game being an engine building euro game, the central mechanic of marriages happening across families (good riddance!) ensures that you're constantly engaged in deciphering the intentions of your opponents. Arranging the right marriage at the right time can make or break your chances. (Read More)

Among Nobles. Первые впечатления

March 17th - via:
Тов. Pard поделился у нас на форуме впечатлениями от неизданной пока игрушки Among Nobles. По всей видимости это достаточно редкий представитель "семейной стратегии", пожалуй, из схожих игр можно припомнить Legacy пана Тшевичека, да Village. В Among Nobles нужно захватывать провинции и получать с них победные очки, а делается это с помощью семей, состоящих из мужчин и женщин, которые вступают в браки, рожают потомство, и со временем сходят со сцены. (Read More)
