"We have yet to come across a Reiner Knizia title that we did not fall in love with, and Medici is no different. [...] a great value, earning 4.5 [out of 5] Dimples." - AppSmile.com

"Medici is in an excellent position to provide a boardgame experience for multiple human players [...] I don’t see this app coming off my [device] any time soon." - BoardGameNews.com

"[...] the gameplay rewards surpass other games — many of which are deleted once beaten. [Medici] represents a great step forward in board game ports for more serious board game fans." - BlogCritics.org


You are merchants in the fiercely competitive, but wealthy age of the Medici family. Your ships sail throughout the known world selling the goods you buy. Every day you go to the market where you must compete with other merchants for the merchandise available that day.

As lots are purchased they are immediately loaded onto the waiting ships so that the ships may depart as soon as the market closes and the tide is high.

When the ships set sail to deliver their merchandise to foreign ports, the merchants gather to calculate their earnings for the day. A merchants earnings are based on the total value of the goods they bought and the number of each commodity compared to the other merchants.

With no setup time required, no pieces to lose, and no arguments about the rules, the future of board games is here and Medici gives you exactly what you want to play!

How to Play:

Combining deep strategy with an intuitive and beautiful interface, Medici is easy to learn but hard to master. Choose your favorite of nine different historically-based Medici characters, and then discover their true personalities as you compete against them in solo play.

On a players turn, they open crates on the dock, then auction them off to the highest bidder. At the end of each day, Florins are paid out to the merchants with the most valuable shipments and who have shipped the most of each commodity. The player with the most money at the end of the three days is the winner!



No set up required

Fast, easy, and fun game play for 3 to 6 players
