Episode 306: Calimala
Release Date: Oct. 17, 2018
Running Time: 67 min.
In 13th and 14th century Florence, the guild of cloth merchants known as the Arte di Calimala wielded enormous economic power. Their trade houses across Europe became financial hubs and helped to bankroll kingdoms and wars.
In Calimala, you play a member of the guild trying to spread your network of merchants and allow them to prosper. To do this you'll send workers out into the streets of Florence to take actions. Most of the time, you'll end up allowing other guild members to act as well!
The group will collectively trigger 15 different area-control scoring rounds plus work toward secret goals at the end of the game. If all goes well you will take your place on the city council and contribute to the massive cathedrals under construction. Which merchant family will rise above the rest?
