Product Description

Designer Andreas Steding typically releases games through his own MoD Games, but for 2009 he'll instead have a design out from Argentum Verlag. Hansa Teutonica will be another take on the Hanseatic League, a loose network of cities and guilds that traded amongst themselves from the 13th to the 17th centuries, which has previously been ludically transformed in games like Michael Schacht's Hansa and Uwe Rosenberg's BohnHansa [AKA Bean Trader].

In Hansa Teutonica, players are merchants in the League who are trying to increase their reputation, either by being represented in cities, building a network that connects cities, collecting bonus markers, or having other traders use your holdings. As players improve their traders, they can benefit in different ways: earning the right to take more actions, earning more money, taking a larger share of the prestige points, and so on. These values are tracked on a player's personal desk, with the higher values in each area being revealed as the improvements are made.

The gameboard is double-sided, with one side for 2-3 players and the other for 4-5.

Many ways to win, more players the better. Never played same way
September 16, 2014

This game has multiple ways of winning. It will take a game or so to see the advantages of each strategy. It plays longer than the 90 minutes. I would say with the max number of players you are looking at approximately 3 hrs. It could be longer in the beginning when players are learning the game. Not complicated but it does require a bit of thought. I have enjoyed my friends game and will purchasing.
