Wishlists

In El Grande, players take on the roles of Grandes in medieval Spain. The king's power is flagging, and these powerful lords are vying for control of the various regions. To that end, you draft caballeros (knights in the form of meeples) into your court and subsequently move them onto the board to help seize control of regions. After every third round, the regions are scored, and after the ninth round, the player with the most points is the winner.

In each of the nine rounds, you select one of your 13 power cards to determine turn order as well as the number of caballeros you get to move from the provinces (general supply) into your court (personal supply).

A turn then consists of selecting one of five action cards which allow variations to the rules and additional scoring opportunities in addition to determining how many caballeros to move from your court to one or more of the regions on the board (or into the castillo—a secretive tower). Normally, you may only place your caballeros into regions adjacent to the one containing the king's pawn. The one hard and fast rule in El Grande is that nothing may move into or out of the king's region. One of the five action cards that is always available each round allows you to move the king to a new region. The other four action cards vary from round to round.

The goal is to have a majority of caballeros in as many regions (and the castillo) as possible during a scoring round. Following the scoring of the castillo, you place any meeples you had stashed there into the region you had secretly indicated on your region dial. Each region is then scored individually according to a table printed in that region. Two-point bonuses are awarded for having sole majority in the region containing your Grande (large meeple) and in the region containing the king.

El Grande Big Box, the 20th anniversary edition of El Grande, includes all previously published expansions: Grand Inquisitor & Colonies, Grandissimo, King & Intrigant, King & Intrigant: Players' Edition and King & Intrigant: Special Cards as well as something currently known only as the "Anniversary Extension".

    4/5
    Cette Big Box va vous donner l’occasion de jouer à de nombreuses parties différentes grâce aux 5 extensions incluses dans la boite. Malgré son côté chaotique, El Grande séduit grâce à ses originalités qui n’ont pas pris une ride, ses choix toujours difficiles, le parfait équilibre des avantages de chaque place dans l’ordre du tour et le fun des parties. El Grande est et reste ze référence en terme de jeu de majorité. Si vous ne devriez n’en avoir qu’un, ce serait celui-là, le grand El Grande !

    Un excellent jeu indémodable de Kramer et Ulrich. Si vous aimez les jeux de majorité et que vous ne devez qu'en posséder un c'est celui qu'il vous faut ! Il y a toutes les extensions parues à ce jour et le jeu de base est déjà bien suffisant avant d'en avoir fait le tour. Un must have d'une ludothèque qui se respecte.

    très bon jeu où tout peut arriver n'importe quand, demande pas mal de stratégie, nous n'avons jouer qu'a la version de base pour le moment et attendons de l'avoir vraiment bien en main avant d'attaquer les 6 extensions!
