Description

Hidden far away from our time lies a valley of unimaginable riches. Drawn by the lure of gold, silver, and precious jewels, adventurers from all over the world soon find their way there. While some of them still carefully choose commissions and provisions, others quickly rush off to bring valuable gems back to their patrons. But those who wish for fame and fortune will have to be cleverer than their opponents!

Valdora is a unique transportation game with route/action optimization and some elements of set collection. There are serveral ways to score points (Commissions, Craftsmen, Workshops). Will the strategy you choose be more lucrative than your opponents'.? The board and bits are stellar: the gems are a treat, the artwork is lovely, and the wooden book holders really stand out and make Valdora look especially sharp.

A fun, strategy family game.

Valdora is Part Two of Michael Schacht's The Gold Trilogy, which includes The Golden City and Felinia. The three games of The Gold Trilogy are linked by a thematical gameworld in which they take place: a kingdom (Felinia), a valley (Valdora) and a city (The Golden City). Other links are: gold (of course!) which has a more or less important role in each game and other aspects like the provisions in Valdora and Felinia which are part of the movement systems.
