st petersburg

saint petersburg is all about ressource management. on the board that comes with this card game you only count the victory points and arrange the supply procedure for the four different kinds of cards (workers, buildings, aristocrats and improvement cards). during gameplay you mainly need to decide when to spend how much money on which type of card, and this of course has impact on all future turns. you need workers for getting more money in the next phase and buidings to earn victory points. with the aristocrats you can earn money and/or victory points, and improvement cards help to upgrade the cards you possess. a rather light strategic game which plays in no more than 45 minutes and is also great fun with just two players, we often go back to this one.

Baroque palaces, wide boulevards, and elegant bridges: St Petersburg. On May 16, 1703, Czar Peter the Great lays the foundation for the first building. Quickly impressive buildings are erected that are ever more grand and beautiful. Such buildings bring the aristocracy glory and the players victory points. But you need traders to bring the rubles necessary for all this magnificence, otherwise, the buildings are empty and bare. But the competition never sleeps and may grab needed cards right from under your nose. St Petersburg: the card game of beautiful living on the Neva.
