If you like a tabletop game with historical battles, diplomacy, strategy, and mustaches, then you will want to check out Makiavelia!
Makiavelia is a diplomatic strategy card game for 3 to 8 players, in which you will play one of 8 leaders and will need to collaborate to rise to power and amass your wealth. However, you cannot trust anyone, and you will need to spend your cards wisely to ensure your victory.
Your goal: to accumulate the most wealth before the end of the game.
Collect as many Makielons as possible.
The Makielon is the official currency of Makiavelia and you need to get as many as you you can before the end of the game. At the end of each round, the players with the highest power will earn some coins. But there are other ways to *ahem* “earn” some coins, such as blackmailing, theft, and more.
Team up by forming regimes.
You stand a better chance to earn coins as a team. At the end of each round, you may form a regime by holding the power tokens of your allies. The regime with the highest combined power will earn the coins. But how will you share them within your regime? To prevail in Makiavelia, you will need to negotiate fiercely.
Play your cards wisely.
You will have 108 powerful cards at your disposal: use them strategically to ascend to power. Each turn you may play a new card: erect a building, exert your influence, or recruit army! At any time a card could turn the game to your advantage, and victory may just be within your reach.
Lead historical battles
With 9 different army units at your command, and with the support of your allies, lead your armies into historical battles. Cast battle dice to unleash your firepower and inflict wounds to other armies or buildings to crush your enemies!
