Magnifico is a popular region-based board game where the ultimate goal is to dominate 16th century Europe and is now available for PC!

Players are faced with tough economic and military decisions as they earn Victory Points and attempt to outbid opponents at the auction and get their hands on Leonardo Da Vinci’s most powerful war machines. Every Victory Point has to be earned by careful placement of your troops, construction of fortifications, and invasion of bordering regions. Each new turn brings a chance to acquire Da Vinci’s precious projects and get the upper hand over your opponents.

Cannons, flying machines, bombards, tanks and many more inventions will be available as options at the auction table, but only with a perfect balance of risk and caution will players make the most of them.

Play hard or play clever, Europe’s dominance is just one Victory Point away.

Magnifico reviews and comments

Translated by

If you can have it at €2, this game is not bad to pass the time. In the evening, after a day of work too long, if you have 1-2 hours only, and not the courage/the urge to embark on a longer game. The mechanics are interesting, and the DA not disgusting. That said, we're quick to do the trick. I really don't recommend it. Better to play it in the plateau, at home, between buddies, OKLM (that said, there too is too expensive; take 7wonders at this price). Don't be surprised at the modeling of the dice throws. Statistically, it's a joke not allowed. I'm not a programmer, so I don't know what type of random generator was used, but it's so bad that it affects the parts. In fact, the repair of the hazards is distributed according to the player, by part. For example: a hit the Blues only make good throws, while the reds are strangely unlucky at each of their throws. The next part, the situation will potentially reverse. And you are also subject to this funny law (after I have sampled only on 17 parts, I will come back to change this assessment if, in the long run, it turns out that the first results are not significant). This means that the share of luck related to the laws of the game increases, despite all the bonuses expected to reduce it.

"Magnifico" is the digital Implementation of the board game of the Same Name. At Its core, the Game is a Kind of risk variant with a few Special Features. First, we have to choose from one of four Cards (Europe, Germany, America or Asia) and whether three or four Players are involved. Unfortunately, our Opponents are always computer-controlled, there is no Multiplayer mode (incomprehensibly). So We can only ever play in The Single-player. Basically, it's always just about occupying Territory or conquering from others. To Protect the Areas, we can build And upgrade Fortifications. To Attack we have Infantry, Tanks and Aircraft. All Technologies are inspired-and this is the aesthetic Strength of the Game-by Drawings by Renaissance Universal Genius Leonardo da Vinci. The turn-based Game always starts with an Auction Phase in which each Player bids for a Special Card. The Winner of this Promotion loses some Action Points, but may also be the first to start the next Round, which is often an advantage not to be underestimated. The more Areas you have, the more Action Points and Infantry you automatically get to the next Round start. As soon as a Player is significantly superior, he also has an uncatchable Lead. To avoid a boring endgame slaughter, a Game usually ends when You reach a certain Number of wins points. Basically, "Magnifico" is a good, strategically interesting board Game that is easy to learn but not so easy to master. The Implementation on PC is unspectacular but clean, the Operation in Order, albeit a bit Cumbersome. Aesthetically, the Game is quite chic. For Solo Players who like board games, you can recommend the Game. The lack Of Multiplayer mode is very regrettable and the then rather clear Complexity will probably quickly underdemand Large Strategists. Rating: 7/10 Atmosphere-/10 Story 6/10 Graphic 6/10 Sound 6/10 Game Mechanics 6/10 Balancing 6/10 Game Pass Conclusion: Nice board game implementation, but without Multigame possibility 6/10 overall Rating
