In the 15th century, Cosimo de Medici aka ''Il Vecchio'' ruled over Tuscany and its capital Florence. Players represent the heads of Florentine families trying gain power for their own familiies, by sending out their family members to recruit followers (knights, assassins, abbots) and collect money as both are needed to take control of provinces in neighboring regions. Players also gain the favor of the squirearchy which is indispensable when it comes to getting an official and influential position in Florence. Will your family rise to the top as a result of your cunning plans?
To complete these tasks, however, a proper middleman must be present at a location, and as these middlemen travel a lot, they are rarely met. That's why it is so important to have one's family members in the right place at the right time to save on time and money while achieving one's goals.
Il Vecchio is intended for 2 to 5 players, ages 14 and up. Playing time is usually about 150 minutes.
