Z-Man Games is coming out with a new edition of Condottiere. Players are in control of an Italian city-state and must use their armies to enforce their dominance over the country. In this article, Z-Man Games gives us a general overview of how the game works, so those that might be jumping in now can know what to expect when it hits the shelves.
From the post:
In Condottiere, the city-states of Italy are bursting with wealth. Use the Condottieri, ambitious leaders of mercenary armies, to engage in battle and establish your influence across the country. Will you boldly march into conflict or carefully draw out your opponent to exhaust their army?
The mercenary cards form the backbone of your army. From the simple foot soldier with a strength of 1, to the mighty cannon with a strength of 10, players must carefully decide which mercenaries will enter the battle. With 58 mercenaries available for hire, each player could have a formidable army.
