Faktoria is a medieval city building game. There is an auction, a building and a production phase. In the auction players need to spend money to get resources that are needed for building buildings. The buildings are worth victory points or can give you more resources in the production phase. The player with the most victory points after 5 rounds wins the game!
I actually never heard of the game before @spiel_messe. But I am so happy that I saw Faktoria. The gameplay is easy enough for new board gamers, but still challenging enough to keep the attention of more experienced players. The auction is fun because of the interaction with other players and the rest of the game is really strategic. The only thing I didn’t like was when I played it with just two players. The auction wasn’t that exciting. But other than that: great game!
