Paris is a two-player board game by José Antonio Abascal infused with Parisian aesthetics by artist Oriol Hernández. The game takes place in late 19th century Paris during the 1889 “Exposition Universelle,” or world’s fair, when public electricity was a hot topic. Electricity spread throughout the city, making today’s beautiful nocturnal Parisian streets and coining Paris’s nickname “La Cité de la Lumiére”, the city of lights.
The most well-lit buildings are admired more by passers-by. In the first phase, players can either grow their reserve of buildings or place tiles. The cobblestone tiles are split into 4 random spaces (their color, their opponents’ color, a streetlight or a mixed-color space where either player can build).
Then, in the second phase, players will build on top of their color or the mixed spaces, in effort to position their buildings as close to as many streetlights as possible. More streetlights get more adoration and points. The player with the best lit buildings steals the hearts of Parisian pedestrians and wins.
