The reprint of Paris Deluxe has arrived… along with L’Etoile and the metal coins! And… as you might have imagined, it was worth the wait!

I first played this game at Essen Spiel 2019… and I LOVED it! Now, to be fair, I also had a Belgian beer in hand from the Game Brewer beer stand… so I may have been in a particularly good mood! 😁 Still, Belgian beer or not.. this is a really fun game that features beautiful deluxe components and some solid strategic decision making.

“…another one.”

I sincerely believe that if Game Brewer was into music production, they’d start each new hit with the standard Dj Khaled. “…another one.” Class dismissed. 🎓

Gorgeous artwork and the HIGHEST quality components. These things have become synonymous with Game Brewer… and for good reason!

The 4mm thick wooden tiles (featuring heat-transferred art) are OUTSTANDING! This is the same sort of production that was used in Gùgõng Deluxe. If you have that game you will fondly recall the very satisfying feel (and sound when hitting the table) of the wooden components.

Ohhhhh… I’ve got a feeling… that tonight’s gonna’ be a good night… that tonight’s gonna’ be a good, good night. 🤣 Clearly I need more sleep… and I need to turn my music off! 😉😅

In the deluxe edition, all of the cardboard bits from the standard game are upgraded to this 4mm wood scenario. And there are a LOT of components!

Check out the unboxing videos below for the details.

To get a closer look at all the components, please check out this unboxing video by Jay Shipinski… the video is HERE.

In addition, the gam includes a custom insert by Meeplemaker that holds all the goodies. This is an “assemble yourself” type deal… but I think the effort is worth it. 😁

You can check it out in this high-speed-video-playback video by Brody over at Meeple Mountain. The video is HERE.

Game Play

Place a building… take an action. Done!

The player turn rules are startlingly simple… but the possible options contained within the simple act of placing or moving a key are DEEP! Ohhhhh.. this is a good one!

OK. So on your turn, you place a building from the draw pile onto a matching space with on of the districts around the board; when there are no tiles left in this stack you may draw an end-game tile. Then you either place one of you keys onto a bank or onto the Arc de Triomphe – OR – you move a key already on the game board. Placing and moving keys gain you resources and ultimately allow you to purchase buildings in your quest to purchase the most exquisite buildings in 19th Century Paris and win the game!

Normally I would get not the specifics of gameplay here… but as I only have a day or two to get new games loaded before my upcoming family vacation… I’ll leave it to the real pros!

My go-to for speedy game run throughs is… Rhado. Sure, he moves at light speed and makes a mistake here or there (smile)… but if you want to see how the game plays without watching a 1.5 hour play through… AND you plan to review the rules before your first play… Rhado is the way to go!  I believe this was a paid preview… but since this video is basically just how to play the game… I figure at the very least the game-play is unbiased 😉😁 You can find the video HERE.

For a more in-depth “how-to-play” video… complete with a full game run through… check out Gaming Rules tutorial with Paul Grogan HERE. This is a solid video and is worth the time if you’re unsure if Paris is for you! [Hint… I think you’ll find that it is, in fact, for you… hehe]

Under Contract

This is a fabulous medium weight Euro that elegantly blends simple mechanics with some satisfying strategic depth! I love the layout of the circular district-divided board… and just the overall feel of this game. Toss in some gorgeously produced deluxe components… a pinch of metal coins… and you have another SOLID winner from Game Brewer!

… another one. 😉🥳

Paris Deluxe Edition and L’Etoile are HERE! And, the metal coins are included to sweeten the pot! Game Brewer… yes! ❤️🎉

Explore Paris in the 19th century. Discover its renowned architecture and obtain the most eminent buildings in the right districts to achieve victory.

Paris is a typical medium-weight Kramer and Kiesling Eurostyle-game with straightforward gameplay, short player turns, and an ingenious point salad mechanism. You mainly score points by obtaining the right buildings and collecting the right bonus cards.

In Paris, you take on the role of wealthy real estate investors in the Paris of the 1900s. Paris is at the height of its transformation into one of the most beautiful cities in the world. After having successfully organized the World Fair in 1889, topped by the construction of the Eiffel Tower and celebrating the centennial of the Storming of the Bastille, Paris goes through a period known as “la Belle Époque”. The architecture of Paris created during this period ranged from the Beaux-Arts, neo-Byzantine, and neo-Gothic to Art Nouveau and Art Deco. It is your task to purchase some of these magnificent Parisian buildings in order to make a profit and invest in the development and upkeep of some of Paris’ most iconic buildings and landmarks.


A few years have passed since the events of Paris. You have invested in many of Paris’ most prestigious building and landmarks and have made quite the name for yourself. But that does not mean you can rest on your laurels: shrewd foreign investors have set their eye on the French capital, eager to become important players as well in the Parisian real estate market. The most coveted properties are all centered around the most famous roundabout in the world: La Place de l’Étoile, which features the iconic Arc de Triomphe, which looks down on the Champs-Élysées. They are up for quite the challenge since your experience will give you unique advantages over your opponents.
