Pamplona attracts over 1 million visitors each year in July for its nine-day San Fermín festival, originated in the 14th century. The daily Running of the Bulls, so dear to Hemingway, is its highest profile event. With is simple yet refined mechanics, Pamplona - Viva San Fermín! Faithfully reproduces the run in all its aspects: bravery, euphoria, adrenaline, but also tactics and management. Players must run all of the 4 sectors of the race, escaping from the opponents’ bulls and steers, while trying to gore or trample the opponents using their own. Pamplona - Viva San Fermín! is not a common race. The winner is not necessarily the first runner to cross the finishing line, but the one show shows the most courage.
Played this 4 times now, best with 4 players but their is no safe place to run unless you get lucky enough to have the avoidance card, when you have it you MUST score points that round if not its almost impossible to win. All 4 games were decided by only a few points, so game is well balanced.
