Description

Hansa Teutonica?- There are many roads to victory in this quintessent Euro game that's all tactics and strategy and zero luck.

The Hanseatic League (also known as Hansa Teutonica) was a medieval alliance between merchant guilds of cities in lower Germany which expanded soon into the North Sea an Baltic Sea areas. Many of the participating cities became very powerful and proudly called themselves Hansa Cities.

Players compete for wealth and prestige as merchants in the Hanseatic League.? There are many opportunities to do so: They may set up a network of branch office in as many cities as possible, but they should also develop their talents and trading skills to become successful merchants.

Developing such trading skills allows players to become more effective in their activities. They may gain additional actions, higher income, new privileges, and improved prestige point return. Developing your preferred profile will bring you in an advantageous position for your strategy against the other players.

Hansa Teutonica is very open to your concepts and gives you the freedom you need to work your way to the top: there are many paths to victory. Clever use of your traders, perpetual observation of your opponents activities, continuous improvement of your skills and the right use of prestigious activities are the key to become the most successful merchant in the history of the Hanse.

Contents: 1 two-side game board, 5 panels in shape of an excritoire, 16 bonus markers, 135 traders (wooden cubes), 20 merchants (wooden disks), 1 black wooden cube, 1 pawn, 4 soldiers, 1 rule book.?This is a multilingual version of Hansa Teutonica with rules provided in both English and German.?The game contains no language-dependent parts other than the rulebook.


Historical note: The Hanseatic League emerged, rather than being explicitly founded, in the middle of the 12th century. Since there was no formal application to join until the later half of 14th century, it was impossible to tell which cities belonged to the League during this period. It was believed, however, that almost 200 cities were involved in some capacity with the League.
