Things that I love of Palace of Carrara are: easiness to learn, replay value. In Carrara you are one of four aristocratic families in the Italy of 16th Century or so, you are competing to gain the favour of the king through building gorgeous medieval buildings in different cities, by doing so you receive VPs, you can achieve it by different ways, either enhancing cities buildings or building motor “decks” per building type. The game gains replay-ability through a deck of cards that set the VPs criteria and ending objectives. The components are beautiful, the map, objects and tiles match perfectly to each other and theme. We had played it with my kids ( 14yo and 8 yo) several times now. its a great family game, length of play we experienced is about 45 min to 1 hours 4 players. So far I rank this game at same level to one of our favourites:Brugge. Both games share the same flavour, both are able to immerse players through time and makes you really believe you are in the renascence Italy. fully recommend it for families, if you loved Brugge, consider this as his enhanced brother.

This game is very attractive design-wise, easy to learn and fun to play with kids, the game experience though is quite similar to playing Dobble/ Spot it, at the beginning pretty exciting and then it gets boring overtime, now that I look what I paid for it ( USD 50) , it’s not bringing the value for money other games give.

This game it’s useful when you travel with your family for holidays and after all the fun of outdoors you just want to kill time at the evening before the supper. But I’d rather to spend 50 bucks in other games such Pandemic or Machi Koro

We’ve playing this game almost everyday since we bought it 1 month ago, it’s super exciting, it brings you the feeling on being in old time cites, with all these neat characters, the only caveat though is that the points of the canals seems very unbalance as many reviewer already pointed out, canals cost to much for what they offer as an advantage to win the game, so we decided to lower the cost to 1 gulden for each canal.Otherwise all players end up just building reputation and houses and characters. I’ve played with my kids of 9 and 12 y.old as well and they love it too, I recommned it as a family game, high replayability value.!
