Product Description

Stefan Brück, alea's editor and developer, has posted a bit of information about (Die Burgen von) Burgund – the fifth large box collaboration in a row between designer Stefan Feld and alea – on the alea forums. This design is a building game that rates a 5 on the alea complexity scale, uses a novel dice mechanism (that has nothing in common with Feld's 2009 release Macao), and is surprisingly free of epidemics and disasters, unlike most of the previous Feld designs from alea.

A blurb on French site Jedisjeux gives a few (unverified) details about Burgund: The game lasts five rounds, with each round lasting five turns, and in each turn players roll two dice to determine the actions available to them: buying tiles, placing tiles, selling resources, and so on. Wild cards show up in the game to ease the pain of some of the choices. As with most (all?) alea titles, the goal is to earn more points than other players.
