El Grande is finally back! After nearly 30 years, Hans im Glück has completely overhauled their favourite area control game, and gives their most anticipated classic a fresh coat.


• A complete rework of the artwork, cover, and pieces in the game.
• Overhauled and updated rules, including minor improvements.
• New variant for 2, 3, and experienced 3 players.
• 2 new mini-expansions.

El Grande is set in 15th-century Spain, at the end of the Reconquista. The players send out their caballeros to gain control over the 9 regions and become "El Grande". However, everything depends on the location of the king - and majorities may shift in the blink of an eye.

Players take turns depending on which power card they play. On each turn, players choose 1 of 5 action cards, allowing them to place caballeros on the map and perform a special action. After 3 rounds, they gain points depending on the majorities in the different regions - and extra points for the majority in the current "kingdom" and their home region. After 9 rounds total, somebody will be the new ruler of medieval Spain.
