Québec puts you at the head of a rich family who wants to leave its name
in history by building Québec city. The game spans four centuries during
which you erect the most prestigious buildings and places of the city.
Construction is not enough: you also have to ensure your presence in the
great spheres of power. It is up to you and your opponents to build
Québec City in your colors!
By contributing to the numerous buildings, players acquire influence
with the authorities of the time : religion, politics, commerce and
culture. Players also help build the famous Citadelle.
At the end of each century (round), there is a scoring round where
players get victory points for the workers they managed to send in the 5
zones of influence. Québec introduces a unique and addictive majority
rule. The player with the majority in a zone cascades half of his
workers by moving them to the next zone. Workers moved in this way allow
a player to score even more points. If a player still has the majority
in the next zone, his workers cascade again – a potentially devastating
ripple effect. This mechanism illustrates the interrelationship between
the great zones of influence. Players must not only fight to get
majorities, they must also erect the most prestigious buildings.
The game ends after the fourth century. Players then receive points for
the buildings they completed. The player with the most points is
declared the winner.
Québec is a game for 2-5 players (best with 4) and takes approximately
an hour and a half to play.
