“In a republic every Italian would insist upon being President, and the result would be chaos.”

Kingdom of Italy

Recreates the chaotic Italian social revolution after Italy’ unification in 1861.

Set midst the chaotic Italian Social Revolution (1861-1946), Kingdom of Italy will astound you with its fast moving play, simple mechanics, involved strategies, and sudden turn of fortune. It's a game that balances resource management, warfare, and political diplomacy - one the entire family can enjoy - especially those who relish blind-siding an opponent or combining forces against the game's leader, be they the King, the Pope, or Prime Minister.

Kingdom of Italy pits the three dominate social classes of 1861 - 1946 (Royal, Cleric, and Populist) against each other. You'll have to choose wisely to win. Support Italy's King, Pope, or Prime Minister to gain control of a newly unified Italy. Devise strategies for creating a political, economic, and military power base. Grow your power by adding cities and their resources, appointing political leaders, and leading strategic military attacks.

BUT BEWARE:

Your enemies know your weaknesses! Without the appropriate military, political, or economic strategies in place, allies may turn into enemies, deposing your leaders, instigating revolts in your cities, stripping you of income and might. Kingdom of Italy realistically reenacts the turmoil and ruthless tactics of Italy’s past - bringing a totally new level of strategy and competitiveness to card games. Diplomacy, risk taking, military planning, deception, and a sudden turn of fortune are all viable avenues for gaining the upper hand.

Will King Victor Emmanuel III find his voice and inspire allegiance to the Crown?

Will Pope Pius XI rally his flock for retaining temporal power of the Papal States?

Will the populists that gave rise to Italy's fascist dictatorship of the 1930's - 40's return?
