During the Middle Ages, magnificent towers rose throughout the cities of Italy. They were breathtaking symbols of the fantastic prosperity of the aristocratic families, known as Patricians. As a master builder, you’ll follow the whims of your patrons, building the greatest towers floor by floor. But to be the best, you must outthink your competitors, gain the favor of the upper class, and leave your mark across all of Italy.

Patrician: Towers of Influence™ is delightfully effortless to play.  Each turn, play a Building card, which allows you to add to a tower in the matching city.  Some cards allow you to take special actions that help you or hinder others. Next, take the face-up card from the pile next to the city where you just built a tower.  As the game goes on, players will continue to build up the various towers, and points are scored for who controls the tallest towers in each city, as well as for playing Patrician portrait card sets. In the end, the builder with the most points wins!
