All roads lead to Rome is an expansion for Thurn and Taxis by Karen and Andreas Seyfarth from Hans im Glück.
With this extension is really two expansions in one box.
In "The office and dignity," always draws a similar plate, if one takes a public officer to complete. By a public official are all platelets are distributed, all the players can decide how much they want to give back. Depending on how many chips you add, you can simplify the game by different bonuses. With the return of two tiles you can take a city map, in three of them you will get a victory point and may even be four in a house set on any city.
In "All roads lead to Rome" may lead to termination of a line drawn carriages towards Rome. At the start of the game, players must distribute their clergy on the carriages. The clergy put a player's coach in Rome of the corresponding different VPs. Victory Points are scored but only for the clergy, who reached the last goal. Therefore it must be easy to remember the values of their own clergymen have in any coach.
The players do not know, however, scored as many points as the coach of the other players. Now it can also be useful times to include more cities in a route as one for the construction of the track really needed. In this way we can influence a little, as the first coach who reached Rome.
This extension is also playing well for families. It is not really complicated, but more varied. There are only simple moves, the children quickly internalize. Well, the price of the expansion is nearly as high as the base game, but the play equipment is high quality and very rich for an extension. To spice is after countless rounds of the game again, "All roads lead to Rome" very good.
"I would recommend it as an absolute must and I must say that I now often play Thurn and Taxis WITH extension. In the base game, I missed the complexity.
Thurn und Taxis - Glanz und Gloria is an extension of Karen and Andreas Seyfarth from Hans im Glück. However, it can admirably to argue about whether this really is an extension, or whether it is a stand-alone game that requires only a little play material from the basic game.
In my opinion, this variant called "enlargement has not" really deserves, as needed from the basic game, only the 20 houses in the game colors. It is therefore rather a modified and refined the basic game with the following differences:
The game plan this time shows in northern Germany famous Hanseatic and university city and its famous trading centers of the ancient Prussians, and Benelux.
The city maps have been slightly modified. The back is now showing horses, the number for the construction of a route is needed. The number of horses must be so high as the number of sections.
Is shown by the addition of the horse, whose numbers in the form of a horseshoe on the front, the luck factor is greatly reduced, because no suitable maps can be used to achieve the required number of horses. We must therefore do not always wait for the right card.
Vielspieler know that in the base game so often is that the person who has built the fastest all the coaches can decide the game on the early end of the game for themselves. It is in this game is no longer so easy to plan. This little beauty flaw has been fixed by the "Wagner" is no longer playing an integral part.
Pomp and circumstance, however, can also play in a classic like the basic game. In this case, the coaches and the Wagner needed from the basic game. Both versions have their charms.
When a courier for the Princess is an extension of the gaming magazine Spielbox, the standing figure of a "messenger of the princess" and is 28 letters of nobility. Before the start of the game is placed in every city on the schedule a patent of nobility. The first player does not get that get a second, the third two and the fourth three noble letters. The Sculpture will be provided.
Whenever a player builds a house in a town in which previously was not a house, he gets there, the booklet for nobility. The builder of houses built later in the same city does not receive a patent of nobility.
With the help of two letters of nobility can buy extra help of the officials. However, it can be claimed only once in each turn, any official person.
If a player gets no coach for a completed journey, regardless of whether he waived, or the track was too short, he takes the "messenger of the princess" to her. This will remain with the player until another him in the same manner brings to him. If one has the standing figure with him, does the purchase of office only one person of nobility. At the end of play, the owner gets an extra victory point.
"Messenger of the princess is" a nice little extension, the course of the game still liquid, however, so the game but also faster. There are, in most cases, fewer rounds, but that does not interfere, but rather to animate a new round.
Thurn and Taxis is a play by Karen and Andreas Seyfarth from Hans im Glück. This game is about the beginning of the 17th Expand century stagecoach network in as many cities.
In addition there are six open booklet with maps prepared city names. Hence, players can expand their coaching network. At each turn, interpret the player has a distance map. This must be connected by roads on the schedule. It is important to build the longest possible route, because the longer, the more points the player coach. If one no fit the booklet cards, one has the possibility to draw a card from the deck too. In each round you can just add a card ... if it were not for the bribe. Read more »
