Venice in the 1500s. The city was filled with wealthy and influential merchants playing their trade. As they looked to bring more money and prestige to their name, they would also have to make sure not to draw too much suspicion all at once from the city's Inquisition. Can you thread that balance as you traverse the city's historic canals? Find out in Venice, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
After our smash-hit campaign for Ragusa last year, we're proud to bring you Venice, a thrilling medium-weight Euro set in the titular 16th century city, that serves as a 'spiritual' sequel to Ragusa.
Venice lets players take the role of wealthy, influential merchants as they ride their gondolas up and down the city's canals, train their assistants, complete contracts, and leverage their influence to gain political power. But business is anything but usual. As they broker contracts and flirt with crime, merchants must avoid arousing the suspicion of the Venetian Inquisition, lest they find themselves arrested and their businesses shut down.
The campaign's more than 2x funded with 19 days left to go.
