Staff Cards

You have a question for the Staff? I am gladly at your service. I would like to explain each and every Staff member in detail: I will also tell you when each Staff member activates and how much you have to pay for their services.

Some activate only once, namely when you hire them, i.e. when you play the Staff card.

Others activate once per round. You decide when that is, but once they have done their jobs, they take a nap for the rest of the round (meaning you should turn them face down). You can use them again next round.

There are also quite busy Staff who work permanently. Their effects last for the rest of the game.

Finally, there are Staff that only come into effect at the end of the game providing Victory Points.

Guest Cards

Guests are usually open books to us experts, so I should not need to explain them all, just a few of them:

Bildhauer: You can prepare a room in the first or second row of your Hotel board at no cost.

If you cannot do so: tough luck!

Reichsritter: The only guest with no reward.

What a greedy odd fellow. At least he is worth an easy 3 VP.

E. Gizia: You receive another turn without taking dice.
