"During the late middle ages, the French city of troyes was a center of western European conflict. It witnessed the marriage of a French Queen to an English King, Joan of arc’s crusade to liberate France, the black Death, the arrival of the gypsies, the birth of arthurian Romance, and more — all before a tremendous fire destroyed the city and its ornate cathedral, consigning the greatness of troyes to history. You can experience the greatness of this medieval French city in the board game troyes. Combining the unpredictability of dice with a tight economy and plentiful player interaction, troyes challenges you to lead a Group of citizens through a tumultuous time and compels you to make tough strategic decisions in every round. Will your citizens become archers or artisans? will you help build the cathedral, or battle Heresy? above all, how will you survive the constant attacks, skirmishes, and battles of the hundred years war, and earn your family some fame during this tumultuous era?

Troyes is an extraordinary game. It has a lot in common with some of my favorite games - Trajan, Le Havre, and Aquasphere.
1) It is highly tactical and reactive, like Trajan. Following a strategic path feels like La Havre, in that getting from point A to point B in your plan takes longer is and more complex than it initially seems. But it doesn't shower you with points like Trajan or Le Havre. It is tight like Aquasphere and has you feeling like you are wiggling and and eeking out points. Average end-game scores are around 40-mid 50s.
2) It can feel like a head to head struggle where you and your opponents are jockeying for advantage throughout the entire game (once everyone knows how to play)
3) It is a game that you can explore. You can't oversimplify the game into "just do this strategy and you will win". You can't "break" the game. The game is very rich, and complex, and there are many subtle things that involved in decision-making that affect the point struggle.
4) Although similar in feel to Trajan, Troyes' gameplay mechanism of buying dice from other players is very original. Additionally, all of the things you can do in this game interconnected - and giving any one of them attention effects the others, as well as your opponents. For these reasons, Troyes stands out as very unique in my collection.
Caveat: This is a Eurogamer's Eurogame. Very thinky, and many would find it boring and themeless - like some say about the games I compared it to. I would say if you like those games a lot, then this would be right up your alley. For me it fires on all cylinders and it ranks high among my favorite games.
Pros of Troyes:
-Shared game board amongst the players.
-Hidden identity/role cards benefit ALL players at end of game.
-Lots of fluidity with dice out comes. You can re-roll & flip depending on your influence in game.
-You can purchase other player’s dice to make your dice suit more stronger per pip count.
-Gamers whole dislike dice games will love Troyes
-The game itself plays along with players via gray meeples.
Cons of Troyes.
-Troyes is not as complex and robust as Tournay. Troyes uses 9 cards total per all players v.s. 3x3 card grid per player found in Tournay.
-Late game crisis can emerge in Troyes. When a player is invested heavily in one house and then backfires at end game. It is more difficult to fix this outcome in Troyes than in Tournay.
Troyes is a solid game and complements Tournay quite well. If you like tabletop Euros, add Troyes to your collection. If you don’t like dice heavy games in general, you will LOVE Troyes.
