Condottiere (2nd Edition)
From the Publisher...
STRATEGY AND CONQUEST IN RENAISSANCE ITALY
In Renaissance Italy, armies of mercenaries fought to conquer the fragmented city-states for the highest bidder. Elite mercenary leaders, known as Condottiere, led these armies to victory under such fabled banners as Medici, Sforza and Colleoni.
Recreate this era as you, an elite Condottiere, strive to carve out your own Renaissance kingdom! Using a unique deck of cards and a map of Italy, you must exploit the assets in your hand and thwart the traps set by your adversaries. Your task is difficult, your mercenaries are unreliable, the Church may intervene, and you are surrounded by others who envy your position! This game is loaded with intrigue and subterfuge. To win, you must be both a clever diplomat and a daring general. Succeed at both, and you will triumph!

|A good medium weight strategy game that is good for up to 6 people. It has more to it that I first realized and am happy I bought it.
|A great medium weight game where you fight to control regions of Italy. Easy to teach and the artwork is good. I am appreciating how good the game is after more plays.
|Condottiere has simple, elegant rules that lead to deep tactical decisions. This is achieved by adding special power cards to the "battles" (auctions really) in the game. This reminds me a bit of Lord of The Rings - The Confrontation, which is also a great game.
