Description Edit | History

From the ZuGames website:

In the year 1338 the Siena’s Town Council charged the famous artist Ambrogio Lorenzetti to paint a fresco showing the town and its commerce. You will play the game above the painting that he made. You will start as Peasants, sowing the ground and selling your crop along the Via Francigena. If you will save enough florins you will be more comfortably off, trading in cloth and spices throughout Tuscany. But your dream is bigger: to enter the Council of the Nine, the town’s government. Therefore you will have to change into Bankers and use your money to obtain the Senesi’s consent: will you finance the artists of that time or contribute towards the construction of the new Torre del Mangia? Be careful, the florins that you have saved could not be enough! Behind every corner of the town other players’ pitfalls hide themselves: beggars, thieves, pretty women inside the inn...
Be prepared for a unique game experience.

3 Siena rules clarifications
Here is a small file gathering together some clarifications of the rules that seem to have dark spots. All these clarifications are official errata I found in the game's forum and on other rulebooks written.

75 Siena rules in plain English
Complete, clear Siena rules presented in a new structure that follows the flow of the game and with more typical English usage. It draws on the work of Zman, Masdero and discussions on BGG. (This is version 3, correcting an earlier mistake about the Opening Auction and adding some player aids.) PLEASE NOTE: There is a small mistake in the rules. If a Banker stops in the Palazzo Tolomei, he earns 5 Florins just as in the other yellow districts. I'm not reloading the file, so just make a note. Thanks!

4 Siena Card Summary (text) V1.0
Text-only card summary that is indexed by the top values of each card. Two copies of the summary are on one printed page. If two numbers are listed for the amount of cards in the game, the first number is the number of copies of the specific card and the second number is the total number of that kind of card in the game.
