Description Edit | History

Another Reiner Knizia standby, this game plays very well with varying numbers of people. The object is to accrue the most points during three rounds, which you do by spending your points to bid on sets of cards. Each turn the current player turns up one to three cards for all the players to bid on, with the highest bid taking all cards. The cards denote a commodity type and quantity/value. The round ends when each player's ships are full, or the commodity card deck is exhausted. After each round, points are awarded to each player having the most of a given commodity, and to the one with the most valuable total "cargo load".

Part of the Knizia auction trilogy.
One of the Knizia Florentine auction games.

It always seemed odd to me that when you selected tiles out of the draw bag you simply put them on the table. I designed this mini-board so that players can place their goods/ tiles on (up to 3) when creating auction lots at the market.

5 Medici Boats - Player Identification Aid
The original Amigo Spiele version of Medici was beautiful and easy to play with one exception: no player identification pieces! So, I drew up some boat/ship graphics in the Amigo edition player colors to help identify each player. Just print out on card stock and/or mount on card stock. Enjoy.
