On a game - Presentation by games - expert Klaus Dieter Kilz in Karlsruhe game shop Doering, we received one of the first nationally available copies of the board game - Implementation of "The Name of the Rose", which will be officially released only on the Game 08 in food.
The Ravensburger - game by game author Stefan field reveals vivid game material and beautiful wood pieces and - figures. The Monastery - atmosphere is through the various additions and produces an abundance of religious symbols.
The game is about finding out which of the participating monks could be played by each player. This is revealed in 7 rounds, each lasting a "tag". On this day a sundial is based on a count down counters and always when a monk is taking an action and this time took to make.
During the rounds, players can move through the monks in the monastery of action cards and thus more or less suspicious to bring actions. These are noted on the "suspicion bar and change with every play. Thus, it is not easy to recognize a suspicious real monk.
To make matters worse, brother William and his assistant Adson always take effect on the action, and is influenced every day by a special event.
If a day comes, the darkness thins a bit: be more detailed evidence and suspicion points each monk now appear on the evidence bar. Each player reveals a non-monk played by him, so can be drawn in the next round of further targeted suspected conclusions.
The winner is the player with the monk at the end game is the least suspect and is therefore on the evidence bar at the furthest behind.
This beautifully crafted game is suitable for 2-5 play - according to the manufacturer monks and takes about 75 minutes. Particularly well, we found that the secrecy continues to the end and does not end like other detective games to play with finding the perpetrator. Which tempts it with concrete suspicion as an "adversary" to appear and intrigues against an opponent stage.
The name of the rose is a part of our series on Deduction, logic and puzzle games. Other games in the series are here to find out.
