“Let him act like the clever archers who, designing to hit the mark which yet appears too far distant, and knowing the limits to which the strength of their bow attains, take aim much higher than the mark, not to reach by their strength or arrow to so great a height, but to be able with the aid of so high an aim to hit the mark they wish to reach.”The Prince, Niccolò Machiavelli

Warring neighbors


Ventura is a board game of creating strategies, constructing armies, and conquering territories for 2-4 players. Will you excel in the Italian political arena, overthrow your competition, use your natural charisma for economic gain, or will you dominate your enemies on the battlefield? Choose one of four unique and historical families to lead: Medici, Visconti, Gonzaga, and Este. Then pick your starting Territories, plan your strategy, and dominate your opponents on the battlefield!

Your army will be strengthened by careful recruitment of the best Captains of Fortune and Companies to your service. Loyal to your family for as long as you pay, these Troops will assault your enemies until they are defeated or you decide to retreat. Victory is within your grasp when you claim new Territories after successful battles. The more Territories wrested from your opponent’s control, the more Victory Points your house gains. To win Ventura a player must acquire 30 Victory Points, or conquer an opponent’s City. Fortune and glory are calling to you, how will you answer?

With optional rules that allow players to adjust gameplay to their liking, over 120 sculpted playing pieces, and over 100 thematically illustrated and detailed cards, Ventura will whisk you away into a world of warring mercenaries and noble families, all seeking control of Italy’s burgeoning wealth.

Prepare to rule Italy when you pick up a copy of Ventura from your local retailer today!
