Game in English.
Set during the tumultuous years of "yellow journalism" at the end of the 19th century, Penny Press played up newspaper tycoons such as Pulitzer and Hearst as they strived to become the dominant newspaper in Old New York. Players progress down the traffic lane throughout the game by publishing newspapers, and they receive bonuses at the end of the game to cover the five "news" or the main news categories of the day: War, Crime-Calamity, New York City, politics and human condition.
To publish newspapers, players assign some or all of their five reporters to the popular stories of the day. When they are ready, players roll the press to claim these stories where their journalists have the majority and assemble them on their "front page" player mat. The score of each draw is determined by the current values in each of the five times. Stories also have 'star' values, and the player with the most stars in each news rhythm gets the end-of-game bonus of that pace.
The end of the game is triggered when a player publishes his fourth (in a two- or three-player game) or his third (in a four- or five-player game). The player who has moved the farest along the taxiway is the winner of Penny Press.
