Hello everyone !
Today we are going to talk about Venice!
We are going on a trip to Italy. After visiting Rome, the capital, we stop in Venice. It's carnival time.
This city, rich in art and history, is fascinating for its architecture. Buildings and streets intertwine with maritime canals.
We walk along these canals, we cross them on small bridges. Suddenly a masked lady calls out to us:
Hello, would you like to participate in the race for precious stones which is played on these pilings, in the middle of the canal? We accept her proposal.
You each represent a color and have 4 precious stones to collect: rubies for red, diamonds for white, emeralds for green and topazes for yellow.
You have a stock of boards that will allow you to go from stilts to stilts. To reach the gems, you have to find the best path in this maze.
For this, you play cards. They allow you to lay, remove, move boards and also to move forward 1, 2 or 3 steps.
You can take advantage of the boards laid by your opponents to go faster.
You'll have to keep an eye on them, they might pull some planks out from under your nose.
When you arrive on the space where one of your stones is, take it and place it on your tent, then continue your turn.
Play cards within the limit of 4 hourglasses or take a joker card. Then draw 2 cards.
If you have more than 8 cards in your hand, discard those of your choice.
Place them on the space as well as the cards played face up. When there are no more cards in the draw pile, shuffle the ones already played to form a new one.
When you collect one of your gems, you win an hourglass tile. It can be played immediately or during a future turn, it is cumulative.
On the turn you use hourglass tiles, you can play cards up to a limit of 4 hourglasses + 1 per tile.
During your turn, you can also exchange 4 cards of your choice for a joker that.
This is particularly useful when you need a specific card or when you end your game turn with more than 8 cards.
The game is won by the player who first collects the 4 gems of his color.
Good day and good game ;)
