I was sifting through some boardgames on a local boardgaming group when I found this rare gem. What caught my attention was the title as I’m pretty sure I’ve heard of it somewhere before (Da Vinci’s Demons, perhaps). Condottiere (Condottieri in Italian) refers to a leader of mercenaries during the time period where Italy was made up of rival city-states like Milan, Genoa, Florence, Naples, etc. Yes, I may have played a bit of Medieval II: Total War in the past. Getting that out of the way, in Condottiere, you play as one of these mercenary leaders, hence the title, out to gut the other mercenaries in your path.
Edit: I’ll post a review once I’ve played a few more games of Condottiere 🙂
