Lacrimosa - Board Game
The controversial death of Mozart in 1791, at the age of 35, left not only a void in the world of music but also left his Requiem unfinished.
The first eight bars of the Lacrimosa movement gave clues as to where it was headed and a commission was granted to finish the piece to honor Mozart in 1792, on the anniversary of his death.
Lacrimosa recreates the events following Mozart’s death, where players are patrons who collect parts of the unfinished work, travel throughout Europeseeking memories of Mozart, and ultimately assist in the completion of the Requiem.
Lacrimosa is a game like none other, highly strategic, and mechanically innovative, with a lovely presentation.
