Lorenzo de' Medici, also known as "Lorenzo il Magnifico" (Lorenzo the
Magnificent), was one of the most powerful and enthusiastic patrons of
the Italian Renaissance.
In Lorenzo il Magnifico, each player takes the role of a head of a noble
family in a city during the Italian renaissance. You try to accumulate
prestige and fame to gain more victory points (VP) than the others. To
do so, you send your family members to different areas of town, where
they can obtain many achievements. In one location they get useful
resources, in another development cards (which represent newly conquered
territories, sponsored buildings, influenced characters, or encouraged
ventures), somewhere else they activate the effects of their cards.
Family members are not identical. At the beginning of each round, you
roll three dice to determine the family members' value. You must
carefully choose where to send your family members with a higher value...
You can gain VP several ways, and you must also pay attention to your
relations with the Church. The game is divided into three periods, each
formed by two rounds; at the end of each period, players must show their
faith, and whoever hasn't prayed enough will suffer hard penalties.
After six rounds, you calculate your final scoring, and the player with
the most VP wins.
