Episode 318: Coimbra
Release Date: Apr. 1, 2019
Running Time: 82 min.
Portugal, though small in size, wields enormous economic, political, and military power through its growing colonial and trade empires during the Renaissance.
In Coimbra, each player is the head of a family selecting dice to gain influence over important members of society within the city: the clergy, the scholars, the merchants, and the civic leaders.
With careful management of the allies you gain and the income you gather from turn to turn, you’ll carve a memorable chapter in Coimbra’s history.
On the surface the game seems simple: pick three dice each turn. But nested within each simple choice are challenging and rewarding levels of strategy and depth.
Listen in to learn why we think Coimbra presents us with an inspired set of restrictions that set the standard for our Spiel of Approval.
