Biblios – Quill and Parchment
Ontvang een e-mail als het spel terug in stock is
A “roll and write” version of the popular Biblios.
The life of a monastic scribe is not easy. Every day you spend long
hours in the monastery copying books, praying, and performing tasks.
Through hard work and prayer, earn the abbot’s trust and display your
dedication to the pious life.
The object of the game is to score the most piety points. The game
consists of 8 days (i.e., rounds). In the first 4 days, players
simultaneously roll their own dice (that show various book types, abbot
influence and travel points) and may do so up to 3 times. After each
roll, the players have 3 options: (1) to keep the dice as shown, (2) to
reroll exactly one die or (3) to roll all the dice.
Most of the dice are resource dice showing books monks are copying,
but there are also abbot influence dice (abbot influences is accrued in
the first half, but spent in the second half of the game), and a travel
die (allowing a player’s novice to go out into towns to do good works
and find more books).
In the last 4 rounds, players use their abbot influence to bid for a priority of tasks.
This is a rare (if not unique) “roll + write” game that includes
auctions and, unlike many roll + write game; it is highly interactive.
After 8 days, the game ends and the players calculate scores. As in
the original Biblios, the relative value of books changes during the
game, so players are unsure of which books will be most valuable until
the end of the game.
