In Venetia, players compete to become the most influential noble family in the history of the Serenissima Republic. From its rise in the ninth century to its decline in the eighteenth, players take part in the golden age that built the city that once was the Queen of the Mediterranean. Each player controls a patrician household, vying for power against other families. To gain clout and fortune, players extend their influence outside the city, using commerce, diplomacy or military strength. As their authority spreads, the power of Venice itself increases accordingly, and distant ports fall under the sway of the Serenissima. In the meantime, players compete inside the city for the coveted title of Doge, the head of the government, spending resources to gain popularity. Venetia includes extensive historical notes about some of the most important personalities of the city, its life, politics and warfare practices. Combined with an exciting gameplay, this depth allows the players to fully immerse themselves in the history of a most unique city.
