“[...] works amazingly well as an [iOS] app. Medici is a wonderful game and a true antidote to button-mashing video games.” – TUAW
“We have yet to come across a Reiner Knizia title that we did not fall in love with, and Medici is no different. [...] a great value, earning 4.5 [out of 5] Dimples.” – AppSmile.com
“Medici is in an excellent position to provide a boardgame experience for multiple human players [...] I don’t see this app coming off my [device] any time soon.” – BoardGameNews.com

Become a member of the infamous Medici family in Renaissance Italy and compete to see who can make the most money in a no-holds-barred three day bidding war. Take turns opening crates on the dock, then auction them off to the highest bidder. At the end of each day, Florins are paid out to the merchants with the most valuable shipments and who have shipped the most of each commodity. The player with the most money at the end of the three days is the winner!
