Doge of Venice
A Game of Influence and Intrigue
Choose Your Candidate
Each candidate has different strengths and weaknesses. While some start with greater influence with the church or military, others have extra agents or family that could forge useful alliances!
Deploy Your Agents
Deploy your agents across the city. Should you fund a trade voyage that might bring returns later, recruit a soldier to bolster your strength today, or block your opponent from commissioning a masterpiece that would cause her prestige to soar?
The Cittadini (citizens) of Venice can aid you in your campaign, bringing you prestige and influence (for a price). But beware, many have secrets that could be used against you…
Visit the Mendicante (the beggar) for useful gossip and helpful event cards. Uncover the secrets of the citizens of Venice to make them more vulnerable to your offers.
In La Bisca (the gambling den), you can hire the services of the less reputable denizens of Venice to work on your behalf. Seduce, bribe, or intimidate the citizens of Venice to join your side.
The Electors Vote
The five Elettore (Electors) each have their own criteria for voting for the new Doge. For three of the electors, how they will vote is known to everyone. However, two of the electors have mysterious motives.
If the votes go your way, you will be the next Doge of Venice!
