Description

The modern city of Nuremberg was known as Norenberc during the middle ages, and Norenberc was a thriving center of commerce and craftsmanship. Anyone seeking control of the city would first have to gain control of the guilds, because being in command of the guilds is controlling the city. In Norenberc, each player assumes the role of an ambitious merchant who tries to gain influence over the Norenberc city council. To do so, the players need to win over craftsmen of the different guilds. The player who manages to win over the most (and most influential) craftsmen wins the game.

• a game of trade in the middle ages: buying from and selling to the different Norenberc guilds;
• a game for planners who are capable of reacting flexibly when their plans are thwarted by other players;
• the mix of skills of different craftsmen and townsmen ensures a perfect mix of strategy and tactics;
• colourful design with lots of wooden pieces;
• game is balanced with any number of players (2-5): amount of game pieces is adjusted to the number
of players.

Others about Norenberc

"Despite this 'Norenberc' is an absolute must have!" - Barbara, Gamepack

"From reading the rules, it seems like a simple game but allowing lots of choices, none of the rules seem complex and there seems like there will be some thoughtful gameplay.  I really enjoyed reading the rules as they were clear, beautifully presented and every step had examples." - James Sheahan, Metagames

“Perhaps, thematically a little bit worn-out (we’ve seen it more often, trading during the Middle Ages), but under the hood, there seems to be an attractive engine. […] I’m already really looking forward to playing my first test game.” - Erwin Broens, Norenberc preview, Bordspel.com

"Allerdings sorgt der Autorenname inzwischen nicht nur bei uns für Aufmerksamkeit und Mehrheitenspiele sind bei Vielspielern auch immer sehr beliebt. Die Spielgrafik ist der damaligen Zeit angepasst und wirkt recht ansprechend. [...] Die Mechaniken verlangen eine gute Beobachtungsgabe sowie eine Einschätzung der Mitspieleraktionen. [...] Mehrheitenspieler, Nürnberger und Fans von Andreas Steding sollten also sicherlich einen Blick wagen… - Cliquenabend

 

"Er zijn verschillende wegen naar de overwinning wat het spel spannend maakt." - Fabrice Vandenbogaerde, Spellenclub 13.
