This article is perfect for anyone who’s looking to improve their crime in florence sc game, be it a brand new player, or someone who’s been playing for a while and wants to level up. We break down the basics of the game, what makes it challenging and fun, and offer specific strategies that are guaranteed to take your game from amateur to pro.
For those of you out there who have no idea what CRIME IN FLORENCE is: it is an online strategy game where you can buy properties on a map of the city of Florence. Players collect rent money from buildings they own on their turn (each turn represents one month in-game) and buy more buildings on subsequent turns.
1. The Basics:
CRIME IN FLORENCE is a game where you will spend most of your time building and expanding. So let’s begin in that area.
2. The Building Phase:
One thing you will want to keep in mind while playing CRIME IN FLORENCE is that you need money to buy buildings, which can take up a lot of space on the board and prevent you from placing other buildings. To avoid this as much as possible, we recommend buying one or two buildings early on when money is cheap (several turns later) so that they won’t take up a significant amount of space at all when they finally go on sale for full price. If you are going to buy buildings anyway, you will want to keep them at the same price when they go on sale for full price. This ensures that your buildings will be available for purchase as soon as possible, and that you won’t be stuck with buildings you don’t want. When buying new buildings, be sure to compare their prices when they go on sale to their prices before they went on sale; it is a good habit to get into while playing CRIME IN FLORENCE.
3. The End Of Turn Phase:
You will often need to make decisions throughout the game that are more difficult than simply playing cards from your hand. Many times you will have to carefully choose who you want to attack, because their buildings are yours, or do not want to take part in a conflict (each player can have only one person on their ‘Bad Guys’ list). This is where knowing which buildings go for rent makes all the difference; if you know how much money they’re going to collect or how many points they’re going to score, it can make all the difference in being able to play your cards as well as take part in conflicts. The easy way to tell whether a building will go for rent or not is to see if it says ‘Rentable’ on it, or if its description list tells you that.
4. The Attack Phase:
Often, you will be able to either attack players directly or attack their properties. If the latter is the case, you need to be careful of what buildings they have on their board; knowing this can save you countless resources when building them up for sale (which we will talk about later). While organizations usually prefer stealing from other organizations and then selling expensive buildings, in CRIME IN FLORENCE there can be some great benefits from taking over individual organizations such as the Knights of St. John. These organizations will give you extra points when you attack properties, and extra points when they get attacked in return.
5. The Conflict Phase:
Sometimes, you will be able to choose which buildings from each other player’s board are going to be involved in a conflict. These buildings may include their own buildings, or the buildings of leaders that help them protect the city of Florence; it is important for players to make this choice as it can have serious effects on the political landscape of the city of Florence. With over 100 different characters, many with their own abilities, being able to take advantage of these different abilities can make all the difference.
6. The End Of Turn Phase:
This is the phase where you can either purchase new buildings or make any other decisions that may impede your progress. Since I’ve been playing CRIME IN FLORENCE, I have found that it is quite advantageous to purchase buildings so they are available for sale as soon as possible. One of the most important decisions you will be forced to make during this phase is what to do with your money. You can maintain your current income, or re-direct that income into other areas of the city (this will be covered further in future articles). Or you can do things such as buy more money for your storage space or buy more money for yourself personally.
So there you have it. One of the most important things to keep in mind while playing CRIME IN FLORENCE is that you need money to buy buildings, which when on sale can take up a lot of space and prevent you from placing other buildings. You will want to buy one or two buildings early on when money is cheap so that they won’t take up a significant amount of space at all when they go on sale for full price.
