Refresh of Classic Game
Posted by William Niebling on June 8, 2018 @ 1:45 pm CT
Originally released by Eurogame in 1995 and then in a revised U.S. version by Fantasy Flight in 2007, Condottiere is set during the turbulent Renaissance Era in Italy. As would-be conquerors, the players use armies of mercenaries - led by the eponymous Condottieri - in a series of battles to take control of the various regions of the Italian peninsula. The first player to control three linked regions or any five regions wins the game.
Condottiere has been popular among strategy gamers thanks to its combination of strategic play, bluff, and special action cards that allow players to make unpredictable moves.
Condottiere includes 1 game board, 118 cards and 32 markers. It was created by Dominique Ehrhard (Serenissima). It is intended for 2 to 6 players, ages 10 and up, and plays in about half an hour. MSRP is $29.99.
Z-Man will soon release its flood management farming game Lowlands (see “Tend the Farm and Keep Back the Rising Tide”). The company also recently announced that it had acquired the rights to Seiji Kanai’s Love Letter (see “‘Love Letter’ Passed to Z-Man Games”).
