Italia - Eleven Centuries of Conquest - A Strategic Board Game by Andreas Steding
Italia brings to life almost 1500 years of Italian history, from 330 BC to AD 1100. During this time, numerous tribes, nations, and empires invaded the Italian peninsula. Most of these tribes were trying to settle down and to displace, conquer or submit the ruling nations or classes. However, the new rulers could not hold their power for long: they were, in turn, defeated by other invaders.
Italia I is a three player war game game simulating the history of ancient Italy until 80 BC, the rise of the Roman Empire.
Italia II is a four player game that sets off at the fall of the (West) Roman Empire in AD 390 and simulates the medieval history of Italy until AD 820.
Italia contains 1 large game board, 624 game pieces, 30 nations cards, 2 player aid cards, 6 dice, 2 notepads and 1 rule booklet
