Renaissance Rivals Print-and-Play

Compete for knowledge, favor and glory as one of the greatest artists the world has ever known! Renaissance Rivals is a 1-5 player game of cutthroat artistic competition that can be played in about an hour. Players take on the role of one of six artists of the Italian Renaissance: Leonardo da Vinci, Antonia Uccello, Michelangelo Buonnaroti, Raphael Sanzio, Sister Plautilla Nelli, or Moretto da Brescia. Over the course of the game, your artist will criss-cross the art market of Renaissance Italy (a 4 x 4 grid of cards, representing Milan, Florence, and Rome) as you use cards drawn into your hand to obtain Commission cards and complete your artist’s eight unique Masterpieces.

The print-and-play version of the game includes:


6 City cards (2 for each city)

6 Artist Reference cards, featuring each artist’s biography and Masterpiece requirements

6 Rules Reference cards, showing Skill Tree and Turn Sequence

63 Player Deck cards (8 unique Masterpiece cards for each of 6 artists + 15 Level 0 cards, 3 per player)

97 Market Commission cards

Total: 178 cards


In addition, pawns or player tokens of some kind will be needed to represent the players' chosen artists as they move around the map.
