From the Publisher...

You are buyers for different merchant houses in the competitive, but profitable age of the infamous Medici family. Ships sail throughout the Mediterranean and beyond in search of rare and valuable merchandise and profitable markets for the goods you buy. Every day you go to the wholesale market where you must compete with other buyers for the merchandise available that day. Bid at the markets for the best prices on valuable and not so valuable goods. Corner the market on a commodity and reap additional rewards. Fill your ship and set sail for foreign markets where your goods will fetch high prices. After three trips to the market, the player with the most money wins!

Medici is an excellent auction/bidding game. Each player represents a buyer for different merchant houses, and on your turn you will decide the number of lots to be sold (up to 3). Each player in turn order will get one opportunity to bid on the lot(s). Once a player has won the auction, that player would pay for those goods and place the merchandise on their ships. The ships have a limit of 5 lots available and after each winning auction, the winning lot(s) would then fill the empty lot spaces on your ship. As your ship gets loaded, the number of available lot spaces will decrease. No player can bid on any lots that would exceed their ship’s current capacity. At the end of the day, buyers would then get paid for their efforts. You can either try to corner the market in one or two commodities or try to buy only the most expensive goods. After three days, the player with the most money wins. This game is easy to learn, a lot of fun, plays fast and has enough strategy options to keep it fresh. If you like Bidding/Auction games, this is a must have!
