Press info:Ludoviel - is, as the name may already have hinted, a game about games. The 120 cards show characteristics of game material, mechanisms, categories etc., e.g.

      1. The designer's last name does not contain an "A"
      2. It is about economics
      3. for 6 players
      4. was published after the millenium

Now, who knows a game with these four characteristics? A valid suggestion could be Bohn-Hansa. Following this basic principle Ludoviel contains eight rules that have one thing in common: This is about games - card games, board games, solitaires, strategy, dice, communication, and collectable games. All rules base upon known mechanisms and have been slightly changed and adapted for Ludoviel. Category by eg, Mamma Mia by abacus or Haste Worte by fxs served as patterns.

For the games you need reaction, knowledge, or a good memory, 1-8 players can play Ludoviel.
