An innovative game of strategy and conquest, with the depth and simplicity of the great classics.
Between the thirteenth and eighteenth centuries, noble knights and gentlewomen weave plots and intrigues, forging and betraying compromises and treaties, all to gain power and expand their fiefs. The most powerful families control entire regions with a patchwork of alliances, investitures, and strategic marriages.
One such family was the mighty Gonzaga, the rulers of Mantua. Like many noble families, they aspire to the highest thrones. But they are shrewd: they know that success requires that they avoid open hostilities.
Using guile and cunning, can you piece together a network of allies, sea leagues, and fiefs to form the largest and most dominant House in all of Europe?
In Gonzaga, you are the ruler of a mighty noble family. Your challenge is to control medieval Europe by claiming your fiefs in the most valuable regions. All families share a common goal: to rule the largest possessions. But you each also seek to secretly control certain cultural and productive centers so you can dominate social and economic fields as well.
To win you must use your cards wisely yet swiftly – and be ready to change your plans at a moment’s notice!
Welcome to Gonzaga. Be sure you watch your back!
