Product Description

What if the Spaniards had assaulted Palace Grimaldi and taken Murat prisoner? What if the King's Dragoons had charged? Or what if the French had not used their artillery? Would their principles of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity have been better regarded?

In 2 de Mayo: Assault on Palace Grimaldi, players can explore these and other possibilities, as well as six new game modes (including a double draft and customized modes) of the original game 2 de Mayo.

The expansion consists of 22 new cards and a rulebook.

Scotland Yard for two players and with a twist
May 31, 2012

Spanish designer Daniel Val's 2 de Mayo first made an appearance in 2008. To some extent it's a game that defies categorization: Is it a war game? Is it an abstract game? Perhaps it can best be described as a clever asymmetrical cat-and-mouse game for two players, that is soaked with historical theme, full of tension, has simple rules, lovely artwork, and plays quickly (under 30 minutes). I was immediately impressed when I first had opportunity to play it shortly after its original release. At the end of 2009 the game was reprinted in an improved edition as part of the Gryphon Games two-player series.

The game-play is themed around the events in Madrid on 2nd of May, 1808, when Spanish civilians rebelled against the occupying French forces. One player plays the French while the other plays the Spanish, and military units on the board are represented by blue and red cubes respectively. Players simultaneously and secretly write orders to determine the movement of their units on a given turn. The Spanish have less units, and have to evade the French to win the game, while the French have the tough task of trying to capture the rebellious Spaniards.

Gamers who enjoy 2 de Mayo will be pleased with the improved components of the new edition, since virtually all the changes are upgrades. Particularly the English titles and more prominent English text on the Event cards are a great improvement. Overall it's a great game, and seeing it appear as part of this Gryphon Games series in a quality edition can only be good for this great little two-player game!
