Eggertspiele has made another announcement in the run up to GenCon - namely that they will be unveiling a new game called Coimbra there.
Designed by Virginio Gigli and Flaminia Brasini, co-creators of Leonardo da Vinci, Egizia and Lorenzo il Magnifico, this same follows suite, being a historic European game. Coimbra is set in a 15th Century Portuguese city.
It seems to be a slightly lighter game that the co-creators' previous work, mostly due to Chris Quilliams' colourful, thin-lined illustrations. Each game is for 2-4 players and can be finished in 60-90 minutes.
Players must lead one of Coimbra's oldest houses, earning prestige and creating stronger relationships with the local monasteries, or be funding expeditions across the sea. You can also earn favour by bribing or protecting (read: blackmailing) the most influential citizens.
Players will need to draft dice each round, which will then impact their decision to interact with the people of Coimbra. Every game offers different monasteries, citizens and expeditions to take advantage.
Although, you can pre-order Coimbra from the 16th April, it is expected for release on the 2nd August at GenCon.
