Auf der Walz is a game that has the "journeyman years" as the topic. This is a tradition that dates back to medieval times and is still alive in German-speaking countries. A craftsman has to be "Auf der Walz" (roughly translated as "on the road") for three years and one day without ever getting closer than fifty kilometers to home. The young journeyman wears a traditional dress: flared pants, waistcoat, jacket, black hat (as a symbol for freedom), the "Stenz" (traditional curled hiking pole), and the "Charlottenburger" (coarse cloth to wrap up the belongings). They work (for a little bit of money but also for board and lodge) for people on their journey.
Auf der Walz is a "travel game" with resource management that takes place in the second half of the 19th century. Like life on the Walz, it includes uncertainty and random elements. Each player earns points at the end of each year on the journey and in an end-scoring after that additional one day.
The engine of the game is a deck of cards. Each player has six cards per year (and an additional card for the last day) and conducts actions with them: traveling, working, finding travel mates, etc. as well as leisure activities: music, writing, painting.

  • This game was played and recommanded by Vin d'Jeu, here its opinion:


    Vous allez gagner des PVs principalement grâce aux actions que vous réaliserez et, plus vous réaliserez les mêmes actions, plus de PVs vous pourrez engranger. Au final, même si on aurait préféré des mécaniques moins thématiques mais moins hasardeuses, Auf der Walz (= en route  ) est plaisant comme un voyage  .  Le jeu de dés est vraiment inutile, casse un peu le rythme des parties et les rencontres hasardeuses auraient pu être un peu plus planifiées.  Malgré ses 20 pages de règles, Auf Der Walz n’est pas aussi lourd que les autres œuvres de Spielworxx.  On est ici vraiment dans un jeu d’aventure où on va voyager dans l’Allemagne du XIXe faire des rencontres, s’adonner à des loisirs, se reposer dans des auberges et autres hôtels pour pouvoir voyager encore plus loin en carrosse.  Et c’est là la grande force d’Auf Der Walz qui est très thématique et qui nous plonge dans une activité peu connue du monde ludique (le voyage des artisans  ).  Dans Auf der Walz, vous allez prendre les mêmes décisions que ces artisans des temps anciens.
