The 3-player expansion for Krakow 1325 AD adds an exciting new dimension to the basic game. When there are only three players, the team work typical of the standard game is reduced to a pleasant memory. Each player has his own set of Influence Tokens and faces both his opponents in the Intrigue Card game and the struggle for board domination. The rules changes involved are simple, but the tactical options and scope for treachery have multiplied. Of course, final victory still depends on the scores of the Secret Identities, which are not revealed until Game End.
"Now you're on your own..." is the motto of this expansion, again developed by Peter Struijf and Melchior van Rijn and self-published by Geode Games.
The 3-player expansion to Krakow 1325 AD will make its debut in October 2009 at Spiel in Essen (Germany). There are two versions: a ziplocked English/Dutch version and a boxed German version (which also contains a complete set of Intrigues and rules in that language).
Peter wisely decided not to rely on his own high-school education to create the German version. He was overwhelmed when he found Andreas Brandhorst, sci-fi author and translator of almost the entire Discworld (Scheibenwelt) series, willing to translate the texts of the Intrigue cards. The game rules were translated by fellow Boardgamegeek Christian Krach.
Ownership of the basic game is, probably obviously, required to play the expansion set.
