Investment is the key in St. Petersburg but should you concentrate on workers who provide money, buildings which award victory points or aristocrats who pay off at game's end?

This game was designed by Bernd Brunhoffer, but released by Hans im Glück and Rio Grande Games under the pseudonym of Michael Tummelhofer.
Battle Cry goes World War II! The civil war game gets a new theme, new production and new rules. What hasn't changed is the fast, furious play featuring plenty of luck and rolling of dice. Who knew war could be so fun? This is the second IGA for designer Richard Borg, and the first for Days of Wonder.
