Glen More II: Chronicles is Matthias Cramer's new tile-laying game of epic proportions, with top-notch material and great replayability.
In Glen More II: Chronicles each player represents a Scottish clan leader from the early medieval ages until the 19th century. Will you focus on growing barley for whisky production, invest in cattle to sell on the markets, travel to other clans in the Highlands to cooperate or will you focus on gaining control of many famous lochs and castles?
You will need to make the right decision at the right time.
Collect the most fame and you've made it! You win the game and your clan stands above all others. Slàinte mhath!
Glen More II: Chronicles is Matthias Cramer's successor to his debut game Glen More released in 2010. And it now contains everything to meet his original vision of Glen More.
In Glen More II: Chronicles play does not proceed clockwise. The players in the last position on the rondel always move. Players proceed as far as they choose.
After taking a tile, it is added to the player's Home Territory, activating itself and all neighboring tiles. This produces goods, converts barley into whisky, moves Scotsmen and triggers many other effect.
When taking a person tile, players can befriend a Clan on the new tactical Clanboard for one-time or ongoing effects.
After each of four rounds, a scoring round takes place. Players compare their number of Persons, Landmarks, Whisky casks and Scotsmen in their Home Castle. They receive progressively more Victory Points, the further ahead they are in comparison to the player with the least in each category.
An important twist comes into play in the last scoring round: Players lose three Victory Points for each tile their Home Territory is bigger compared to the player with the smallest territory.
The player with the most Victory Points wins the game!
Improvements over the original Glen More include bigger tiles, better materials, new artwork, the ability for each player to control the end of the game, and balancing adjustments to the tiles for a better suspense curve. The game is designed to consist of one-third known systems, one-third new mechanisms, and one-third improvements to Glen More.
The "Chronicles" in the title — a set of eight expansions to the base game — are a major part of these new mechanisms. Each Chronicle adds a new gameplay element to the base game.
