Troyes is a highly rated intense 1 to 4 player game for ages 12 and above that takes around an hour to play. It is also ranked as one of the best strategy games on Board Game Geek.
In Troyes (pronounced “twah”), players recreate four centuries of history of this famous city of the Champagne region of France. Each player manages their segment of the population (represented by a horde of dice) and their hand of cards, which represent the three primary domains of the city: religious, military, and civil. Players can also offer cash to their opponents’ populace in order to get a little moonlighting out of them — anything for more fame!

Make your underlings:
work on the cathedral
bustle about the city
and other such tasks that are below your family’s stature
Many editions of Troyes released in 2016 or later include rules for a solo variant as well as four bonus cards originally released in 2011 as a promotional item. Versions released prior to this date contain rules only for games with 2-4 players.
