Product Description

In Michelangelo you play an apprentice to the great master himself, trying to work your way to the top of the political and social ladder -- currying favor with the great families of Italy that commission his work -- while helping Michelangelo complete his great masterpieces.

Michelangelo won't be around forever, and you need to ensure your own job security working as an artist after he is gone. You must carefully position yourself by garnering the approval of those in power and by showing off your own artistic talents in the many projects in progress at any given time in Michelangelo’s workshop. But be careful, for the winds of fortune change often, and the family in power today may be in rags tomorrow. A true artist is prepared for anything and everything!

In Michelangelo you strive to get credit (even when it isn't due), delay the projects of your rivals, and even buy your way to power. With separate tracks for players scores and family scores, there are ample opportunities for negotiation, diplomacy, and intrigue. Fame, money, power... can you seize it all as you rise to the top of the families of Renaissance Italy?

The Michelangelo board game includes project cards with full-color images of some of the master's greatest works. The sight of the beautiful paintings, the lifelike sculptures -- and the thrill of snatching power away from your friends -- will keep you at each other's throats for game after game. This game is sure to turn the heads of art lovers and gamers alike.

The game's rules are easy to understand; while the political system gives players strategic control over their own destiny and encourage alliances and cut-throat infighting. With almost no random elements in the game, expect hours of strategy and fun!

Bucephalus Games is proud to work with James Ernest and Mike Selinker to design this game. Their design experience merges with Bucephalus Games' dedication to high quality games and durable components to bring you a wonderful game that can be enjoyed by the art lover and strategy gamer in all of us.
