Murano the game is set in Murano the place, with Murano being a
small group of seven islands near Venice that's well-known by tourists
for its glassmaking. As in Venice, the islands of Murano are separated
by canals, so gondolas and transportation are at the heart of this game.
The game board depicts the islands of Murano, with the islands being
divided up into building sites and walkways. Surrounding the islands is
a series of action spaces, with gondolas being present in some number of
them at the start of play. On a turn, you move one of the gondolas in
the direction of play to an empty space, then take the action shown
there. You can't pass another gondola while moving or land in an
occupied space, but for a coin you can move a gondola that's in front of
the gondola you want to move, and you can pay to move multiple gondolas,
Some actions place shops on the islands, with shops coming in different
types. You mark a shop to show ownership, and when tourists show up
later, they will shop at various stores depending on their proximity and
the goods they offer. You also need to take actions to move your
personal gondolas to islands so that you can take actions there.
Why are you doing all of this activity? To score victory point cards in
hand, and actions on the board will let you gain additional VP cards to
give you direction to your actions or let you profit from what you've
You can also use some of the buildings to create glassworks, and those
glassworks come into play on the VP cards, through tourist sales, and
via an action space shown at the bottom of the game board image that
lets you sell different types of glass for money.
