Description Edit | History

In the year 1368 our ruler Casimir the Great, on the right of his royal sovereignty, established the Statute of the Cracow Salt Mine. It is clearly written that anyone to whom the King awards the title of Royal Steward will manage the Wieliczka Salt Mine, called Magnum Sal. His Majesty the King will give this royal stewardship to the foreman who by his work shows that he is the best in the craft of salt mining, and he will lead the operations of the Cracow Salt Mine for the glory of the Polish Kingdom.

Magnum Sal is a eurogame about exploration of a salt mine (second oldest still operating salt mine in the world). Each player takes the role of a foreman - the manager of a mining team. During the game, players will try to extract salt most efficiently from the mine, sell their "white gold" at the market, and above all complete the king's salt orders. The player who earns the most money from extracting salt receives the title of Royal Steward and wins the game.

(From the rulebook)

Magnum Sal is latin name that Wieliczka was noted in some documents for the first time - it means Great Salt. From this latin name, Wieliczka was formed - Magnum (Latin) -> Great (EN) -> Wielki (PL)

Quote from wikipedia (there is no source for this but it's probably the way that the name Wieliczka was formed):
Magnum Sal (latin) -> Wielka Sól -> Wielika Sól -> Wielicka -> Wieliczka

33 Turn Order and Actions Summary
Designed by dtroy_de_rapcore This player aid contain: -turn order summary -tools description -buildings description -phase end summary -game end summary This player aid didn't include game setup. Made especially for non-boardgamers, for them to refer while playing. Note that actual rule explanation still required and I recommend to NOT use this player aid as the source. Simply because I made this to be as simple as possible. Printing recommendation: 2 pages per sheet. I used "multiple pages per sheet" option for the "page scaling" in Adobe when printing. Then glued back to back. I find this size is the ideal one as it's easy on the eyes. Hope everyone finds this useful. Enjoy! * Let me know if there's any error or if you have a suggestion yeah.
