Troyes, the first title released by newly-founded Belgian publisher Pearl Games, is the brainchild of a trio of Belgian designers: Xavier Georges (Royal Palace, Carson City), Alain Orban (Santy Anno) and Pearl Games manager Sébastien Dujardin. Here's a game description from the publisher:

Troyes is a strategy game in which players represent a rich family from the Champagne region, using their influence to recruit and supervise individuals in three prominent domains: military, religious, and civil. Each domain is represented by its own color (utilized on the cards) and offers its own benefits.

The inhabitants of the city provide a work force, created by rolling 18 dice at the beginning of the round. Next, the players will meld sets of 1 to 3 dice of the same color in order to execute an action; the nine activities of the city include such things as building the cathedral, grappling with an unfortunate event, or even recruiting new residents in order to be able to roll more dice next round. The dice used by a player are free if they are his own citizens, but each player also has the opportunity to open his purse to recruit his enemies’ citizens. Players can use their influence to change the result of the dice, giving them a degree of control rarely seen in a dice game!

Additionally, each player receives a secret character card at the beginning of the game, whose principles he will defend with the most clever of schemes. In order to gain still greater fame, he will also try to divine the other players’ agendas. The player who has garnered the most fame, as a result of his every action, will win the game. To ensure plenty of replay value, there are 27 Activity cards available, but only nine of them are used each game.

Troyes will debut at the Spiel game convention in Essen, Germany in October 2010. Rules in English, French and German will be posted prior to the game's release on the Pearl Games website.

Tournay
Built by the Romans during the first century in Belgian Gaul, Tournay experienced most of its growth along the Scheldt river. Unfortunately, the river also contributed to its troubles, because in 881, the Normans traversed its watery path, and thereby easily captured the city. That act of aggression stunted Tournay's prosperity. This game invites you to participate in the reconstruction of the city, in order to establish a glorious era that will last for more than seven centuries. Help your district flourish by cleverly coordinating the work of the city's three domains: military, religious, and civil. Certainly the prestige of your buildings will brighten the entire city!
