The epitome of the dry soulless Euro with a pasted-on theme, The Princes of Florence is actually a tight game in which you have 7 rounds to build a tableau of buildings, landscapes and special abilities in order to complete 'works' (i.e. objectives). Each round consists of a simple auction followed by 2 actions each, and you need to balance a long term strategy with short term opportunities for quick wins. Player interaction comes from the auctions and keeping an eye on what the other players are building, because if you are building similar stuff then you can potentially benefit from their completed works.

I really enjoyed it, and I think Roger and Julian did too (Alan, I got the impression you were less keen?) and hope it will hit the table again.

Final score: Alan 77 (unstoppable!), Roger 57, me 56, Julian 50

Great to see this played again, as it looks absolutely fantastic:

Having struggled through the tortuous Knizian end game scoring, it turns out I managed to win by focusing on rice fields and having more of one thing than anyone else. I was as surprised as everyone else by the win!
