Alma Mater has players serving as a headmaster of one of the independent universities in the 15th century. Alma Mater serves as a spiritual successor to the well loved Coimbra. This brilliantly illustrated and expertly designed title brings players to the 15th century as headmasters of competing universities seeking to build the most prestigious school in the world.
Players seek to strengthen their school's reputation and standing. To achieve these goals, players need to recruit the best staff and students, exchange knowledge with other schools, and become experts in the school's four disciplines!
Alma Mater combines elegant worker placement with very satisfying engine building and a dash of resource management, all of which reward players for long term planning and executing their strategies. Fans of Coimbra will also appreciate similar art styles and color palettes.
Beyond being a deeply satisfying game, fans can look forward to a compliment of wonderful components - beautifully designed books, receded player boards, chunky maples, and thick punchboard tokens. Alma Mater will not only stimulate your mind, but also your senses!
