It seems like lately in the board game community simpler, faster, and smaller have become the new standards. Fewer and farther between are the long, sweeping board games like Twilight Imperium 3 and Through the Ages. But, the Kickstarter for Medioevo Universalis is a throw back to the longer games of old. It boasts 1180+ total pieces including 550+ miniatures!
Here’s what the Medioevo Universalis campaign says about the game:
“Medioevo Universalis is perhaps one of the biggest board games ever. The game is for 3-5 players, expandable up to 9 players, and lasts about 2-5 hours.”
“Players will lead one of the great medieval kingdoms of the thirteenth century by developing an intricate commercial network, advancing its technology, and weaving diplomatic relations with the other players. A number of possible adverse events can occur: natural disasters, and barbarians that will hinder military conquests or the creation of an empire.”
