  • DESCRIPTION:

Return to the 18th century when Łazienki Królewskie (Royal Baths Park) was the summer residence of King Stanisław August Poniatowski. Deliver to the king the most gorgeous artwork and win the game!

Łazienki Królewskie, which literally means “Royal Baths”, is the largest park in Warsaw, Poland. The park-and-palace complex lies on the “Royal Route” linking the Royal Castle with Wilanów palace to the south.

In the game Łazienki Królewskie, players use movement cards to try to meet the king walking around the park. When a meeting occurs, the artist delivers artwork and the player receives victory points. Each turn, the player can move up to three different artists and perform the corresponding actions or draw cards. The player who ends up with the biggest artwork collection — and thus the most victory points — wins.

The game has an educational value in that the artwork collected by players is real and can be seen in Łazienki Królewskie. Three real historical artists — Marcello Bacciarelli, André Le Brun and Jean Martin — are included in the game.

 

The game was designed with Marcin Krupiński under the patronage of the Museum of Royal Łazienki.
