In a magically altered 17th century, the Italian lands that survived the Witchplague are now called Ausonia, and powerful houses rule over them. Every player impersonates the leader of such a family and, with the help of supporters and magical gemstones, tries to become the next ruler of the city-states.

In Ausonia, players impersonate powerful House Leaders who aim to increase their influence across the lands. During their journey on becoming the most influential noble, they enhance their starter decks by purchasing and playing more and more powerful cards and collecting valuable gems as the fuel of the innovative resource system that also provides an arc to the game. Any player can go from zero to hero by improving their deck and creating crafty combinations that result in an exciting endgame.

  • Several different keywords make sure that the players have great control over their deck and they can manipulate the game-flow.
  • The Raise mechanics provides a great possibility to use your weak and unwanted cards to your advantage.
  • Nobody can interfere with your round! This way, you can create powerful multiple-card combinations undisturbed.
  • Challenging and thrilling Solo mode included.
