Place your dice and build up your tavern before guests arrive in this deckbuilding and dice-rolling modular pub creation and management game. Try to bring in wealthy guests while managing both cards and dice if you want to be successful.
Clocking in at around an hour, it’s on the lighter end of Complex, but there’s still plenty of game to it. With five expansion modules already in the box, The Taverns of Tiefenthal is a solidly weighty title that will help bridge the gap between Strategy Games and Complex Games for a wide variety of players who are interested in something more involved.
What Our Committee Is Saying
[It] mashes up different mechanics in a way I haven’t quite seen before: deck-building, press-your-luck, and some engine-building in the form of an upgradeable tavern. The modular system lets you gradually increase the complexity of the game so you don’t have to learn everything all at once.Ruel Gaviola
Due to the different modifications that are offered, players have the option to customize the type of game they would enjoy playing. This is the type of game that players will enjoy developing and fine tuning their strategies.Annette Villa
