In Counterfeiters, players take on the title role, printing fake
bills and exchanging them for the real thing. The Godfather can help
them avoid the police, but his protection comes at a cost. The game ends
when the police complete their investigations into the counterfeiting
industry, and the player with the most real (i.e., non-counterfeit)
The game is situated in Miami, Florida and lets players compete to be
the best counterfeiter. Players assume the role of anthropomorphic
figures and while being protected by the godfather, they try not to pay
him too much for the offered protection. Meanwhile, the police is
investigating the counterfeiting industry, quickly making lower quality
counterfeited money useless.
Players each have three animal pawns and place them in turn order,
immediately executing the associated action. Players can buy component
cards on the black market, improving their opportunities for both
printing fake money and processing it. Of course, players will exchange
their fake money for real money and try to keep it away from the
godfather by putting it away in an offshore account...Ages: 13+ | Players: 2 - 4 | Playtime: 35 minutes
Papà Paolo brings you to the beautiful city of Naples, birthplace of one of the world's favorite dishes: pizza.
In Papà Paolo, 2 to 4 players compete to deliver the most pizzas to the hungry customers of Naples. To do this, you must outsmart your rivals by being a clever investor, bidding on the right city tiles, and creating your own little district of Naples.
Over the course of five game rounds, players first have to plan their actions carefully, choosing whether they want to invest in new pizzerias, make express deliveries, get sponsored by the bank, or decide to expand their district. Once all players have used up their action tokens, players get rewarded by receiving Lira, which they can then use in a bidding phase to determine how many deliveries you can make, and how many pizzas you can deliver. Once you deliver pizzas to your hungry customers, they reward you by boosting your abilities, making each action more powerful as the game progresses. Every decision counts, but Papà Paolo is a very accessible game, which will charm players of all ages alike.
Ages: 10+ | Players: 2 - 4 | Playtime: 30 - 75 minutes
