Drake says: "Players take on the roles of the heads of influential families in Paris at the end of the 14th century. In the shadow of the Notre Dame cathedral, the players compete for prosperity and reputation. Each family controls one of the 3-5 boroughs that surround the site of Notre Dame. As head of his family, each player tries, through the clever use of his action cards, to advance the power and prestige of his family. But penalties are assessed against those who do not take care of the health of the people who live in their borough. The player with the most prestige at the end is the winner."

John says: "Notre Dame is fairly easy to explain and the speed of play is excellent. However, it may take a few games to learn the Person Cards and their effects. Pay attention to what your right-hand opponent is doing so that you can anticipate the kinds of cards you're likely to be passed. There are many different ways to score points and many potential avenues to victory. The game is quite addictive and the components are top notch!"


Stefan Feld


Players play as well-off Parisians in the 15th century who wish to improve the importance and appearance of the city quarter around the famous Notre Dame cathedral. The primary game concept is original and has simple card play allowing players to permanently improve their influence in the quarter. Turn after turn, round after round, players must make choices that can have major implications. Because if one does one thing, then the other can't be done any more. Concentrating on one aspect means automatically ignoring another. Which, above all others, is particularly dangerous in the case of the gradually approaching plague...

After 9 exciting rounds and about 75 action-filled minutes, Notre Dame is over. The 'maitre' who has made the most of his cards and has garnered the most prestige points is the winner.
