Presentation of the game
Tapestry is a game of civilization in the tradition of games like À la Gloire d'Odin or Russian Railroads. The game was designed for games of about two hours for up to five players. 
Objective of the game 
In Tapestry, players have the daunting task of creating and developing a fictional civilization. From the beginning of its era to a future era, players will have to think about how to make their civilization flourish as effectively as possible. There are four possible paths of development: Science, technology, exploration and war. Other actions are also required to earn points such as increasing your income or building a capital. 
Game system 
Tapestry's game mechanics is based on a system of laying tiles on a board common to all players and laying workers on an individual board. However, the game goes even further, since it also includes a hand management dimension and an exponential system of points to score according to the choices made during the game.  
Tapestry is a strategic game with a high degree of replayability. 
The game also includes a single-player game system. 
Course of a game 
The game takes place in several game turns. In turn, a player has two possible actions: 
1) Either the player collects his income and starts a new era.
In this case, he will progress in the game by following the following four steps:
  • Activate civilizational skills.
  • Play a card on the empty space. 
  • Update a technical map and earn victory points for all VP icons displayed on its revenue carpet tracks.
  • Earn revenue from all exposed icons for resources, territory tiles, and tapestry maps on its resource trails.
2) Either the player advances his Player token. 
The player will then have to follow the three steps below:
  • Pay the cost.
  • Move your player token one space forward on the track.
  • If available, pay to win the bonus only once. 
End of the game 
The player who has developed the richest civilization wins the game.
The game ends at different times for each player. For a player, the game ends when he completes his 5th and last round of income. When all players have completed their last round, the one with the most points is declared the winner.

    un retour sur le contenu de la boite , vous en avez pour votre agent sans aucun doute autant sur le materiel que sur le gameplay

    Nous sommes ici en présence d’un jeu Stonemaier Games, et donc si vous êtes un habitué de cet éditeur (Scythe, Wingspan, Viticulture…), vous savez déjà que le matériel va être chouette. Et vous avez raison.

    A l’ouverture de la boite, un peu de lecture. Ce n’est pas de l’ironie :
    – 1 livret de règles de 4 pages (véridique !)
    – 1 livret de règles Automata de 4 pages, pour jouer en solo
    – 1 fiche Shadow Empire, variante 2 joueurs
    – 1 guide de référence recto-verso, précisant les cases du plateau et les cartes Tech.
