Board Game - Rokoko - PEG54525G - 70515 - Pegasus Spiele.
Welcome to the Rococo era during the reign of Louis XV when it's safe to say that holding lavish balls is quite trendy. Important personalities wrap up in noble coats and dresses, anxious to outshine one another. As the biggest event is coming up in just a few weeks, everyone is turning to you with their requests: an elegant coat here, a stunning dress there, or a donation to fund the fireworks at the event. Soon you realize that it's not just about your dressmaking business anymore – it's about managing the most prestigous ball of the era...and now it's time to ro(c)k! Rokoko is a Eurostyle board game with an interesting take on deck-building. Each turn you play one of your employee cards and let that employee perform a task: hire a new employee, buy resources, manufacture a coat or dress, or invest in the ball's decorations. But not every employee is up to every task, so you must choose and lead your employees wisely – especially since each employee grants a unique bonus and some of these bonuses generate prestige points. After seven rounds, the game ends with the big ball and a final scoring. Then you gain prestige points for certain employee bonuses and for coats and dresses that you rent out to guests at the ball as well as for decorations that you funded. The player who collected the most prestige points wins.

The artwork is beautiful and the game is fun to play. Each player owns a tailoring shop and it's your job to make the best dresses and suits for the upcoming King's ball in the palace. Hire and fire ("depute") workers, buy fabric, yarn and lace, and make dresses and suits to sell or rent out.
When we start playing usually there's a "whaaaaat?" coming from the new players about the subject matter, but people quickly get into it and it's more fun because the concept is different from existing games.
This game does take several hours to play with new players.
Don't let the theme discourage you the mechanics here are solid and easy to learn, the game escalates extremely well from 2 to 5 players without being overly long (nearly two hours for a 5 player game when you know how to play) and it remains good and challenging for every player count (it has two boards depending of the number of players, a feature i really like since it helps to keep the game interesting even at just 2 players).
The board, and the art in general, it's superb, easy to understand and the iconography really helps to remember the rules.
The components are very good as well, thick cardboard, wood components and an awesome scoring system that keeps you interesting down to the last round, since it's not really obvious who is the absolute lead at any given time.
There is also an expansion coming soon, and it seems like it will add a lot of variety, so that's another good point for it.
BUY this game, you will not regret it, the only problem whit it it's that the theme drives away some people, but to me it's another strong point, since it's very original (i thing there is only another board game about fashion, and it's very hard to get), so getting people to play for the first time may be a little hard, but i pretty much guarantee that getting them to play again will be quite easy.
