Reviews Review Game
By Hopuk From Lancs in United Kingdom
Review
Princes of Florence, is a strategy game worthy of any game groups attention. Using a combination of auction, building, and management, it is a unique game that leaves players with many choices on every turn, thus creating a challenging experience.

The components in the game nicely capture the period and are up to Alea's usual standard.
Princes of Florence is played over seven rounds with each round having 2 separate phases. The first phase in each round is an auction phase. In the auction phase, each player gets the opportunity to win one item up for bids. Play begins with the start player for the round who chooses one item from among the five options available, trying to get items that will help the player attract the artisans necessary to gain victory points.

After all players have gained an item in auction, play moves into the Action phase. Moving clockwise from the start player, each player is allowed to take two actions from the five available and quite often wanting do 3, 4 or all five of them!

Play continues through seven rounds with each player completing works or building up resources to complete most efficiently and effectively. The choices players face with each round make playing Princes of Florence a constant, and satisfying, challenge.
