covers the confrontation of two powers of the era in a political and military context that anticipated the long period of the Thirty Years War. The war was very costly in terms of human lives and resources for both sides and ended with poor results, a minor Venetian victory, but at least the threat of the Uskok pirates vanished. The game mechanic allows activating units in an unpredictable sequence, enabling uncertainty about campaign outcome and replayability. Cards introduce political and historical events and allow the development of custom strategies. [Forum]
