On a game - Presentation by games - expert Klaus Dieter Kilz in Karlsruhe Doering game store, we received one of the first nationally available copies of the board game - Implementation of "The Name of the Rose", which will be released officially only on the PLAY 08 in food.
The Ravensburger - Game by game's author, Stefan Field Game Material revealed vivid and beautiful wood pieces and - characters. The Monastery - atmosphere is determined by the different cultures and an abundance of religious symbols generated.
The game is about figuring out which of the participating monks could be played by each player. This is manifested in a total of 7 rounds, each lasting a "day". On this day a sundial is decremented using a Scoring Markers and always, when a monk is taking an action and it takes time has.
During the rounds, the players can move through action cards, the monks at the monastery and then to more or less suspicious to bring actions. These will be noted on the "suspect bar" and change with every play. Thus it is not easy to recognize a truly suspicious monk.
A further complication is that brother is influenced to take William and his assistant Adson always influence what is happening, and every day a special event.
When one days ends, it lightened the gloom a little: For more detailed evidence and the suspected points of each monk will now appear on the indicia strip. Each player reveals one of his unplayed monk, so that may be considered in the next round of further targeted suspected conclusions.
The winner is the player whose monks at least the end of the game is suspect and is thus on the bar at the circumstantial evidence furthest behind.
This beautifully crafted game is suitable for 2-5 Mitspiel - monks, according to the manufacturer and takes approximately 75 minutes. Particularly well, we found that the secrecy continues until the end and not end like other detective games to play with finding the perpetrator. Which tempts it to specific cases of suspected as an "adversary act" and intrigues against an opponent to stage.
