When playing 'Anjou', you immerse yourself in the workshop of the 14th century master-illuminator Christophoro Orimina. As his apprentices, you are tasked with illustrating a beautiful bible, know as the 'bible of Anjou' (nowadays kept in the vaults of the Belgian University of Leuven).

In eight short rounds, the players place all sorts of funny, proud and saintly images in the margins of the manuscript's pages. Points are earned for using the most complex images and for following master Orimina's instructions as closely as possible. The player with the highest total score, wins the game!

'Anjou' offers a unique playing experience because of its closeness to history. Every single image in the game, including the backgrounds to the cards (and to this webpage) are derived from the actual historical manuscript. Players are not only imagining to be member's of master Orimina's workshop, they are literally playing with an exceptionally beautiful piece of medieval history!
