Description Edit | History

Game description from the publisher:

In an age of great battles, valiant leaders, and unscrupulous mercenary armies, fortune lies within your grasp.

Ventura is a board game of nobility and conquest for 2-4 players. Set in 14th century Italy, Ventura puts players in control of warring noble houses, each vying for control of the country's growing wealth. Balance your house’s earnings and maintain your hired soldiers to keep your family’s noble standing. Remember, the best armies are also the ones that cost the most!

With more than 120 plastic pieces, 40 Territory tiles, 4 Family Boards, a scoring board, and over 100 cards, Ventura will whisk players into a world of warring mercenaries and noble families, all seeking control of Italy’s burgeoning wealth.

9 Ventura Rules Summary
Noticed that this title was lacking the rules-summary treatment and thought I'd give it a shot. Let me know feedback on accuracy. Credit to BGGer HauRuck, with his thread on easily forgotten rules which I also consulted when making this.
