Many people grow up wanting to be an actor/actress. They want to put on costumes and act out plays, taking in the persona of some of the great characters from literature or history. To become thespians of the highest order, playing for kings and queens. Well, it’s just this sort of thing that you get to do in Histrio, a new board game announced by Asmodee.
In the game players take on the role of a troupe leader who is in search of new actors to join their cast. There are eight different cities that you can recruit from, but be careful, each turn only one player can recruit from each city. So you have to be shrewd about where you find your acting buddies. But don’t worry, even if you don’t get to recruit someone on your turn, you can still take Requests, which will help you gain coins at the end of the theater season. Build up your acting troupe and put on the best play you possibly can for the king.
