Ventura puts 2-4 players in control of a noble house setting out to conquer their outlying territories, represented by a modular game board. By gathering Florins, players must recruit and pay for their troops in order to secure more land. However, their family’s earnings must also be reserved for accumulating Victory Points.
Victory can also be secured through military might. Battles in Ventura are fought over the course of several assualts, with each player arranging their fighting Companies on their Family Board.
Whenever one of your Companies falls, the one behind it must move up and fill its rank. So players will need to plan their marches well in advance if they hope to survive the battle.
