About Hansa Teutonica (base game):
In the olden days, those who controlled the trade routes controlled the civilized world. Are you up to the challenge?
Back in the medieval times, an alliance of merchant guilds known as the Hanseatic League spread wealth and influence across Europe. In Hansa Teutonica, you are a member of this guild, and you are in a race against other guild members to grow your wealth and expand your sphere of influence as you buy, trade, and steal your way to becoming the most revered merchant the Hansa has ever seen! But your ambition isn’t yours alone; other merchants are trying to accomplish the same and will stop at nothing to make sure that their names are etched in history while yours fades into the shadows.
Hansa Teutonica gives players a wide range of ways to reach their goals, utilizing trading and honing of a particular set of skills to give them the leg up on each other. Its simple-to-understand rule set and flexibility make it an ideal game for people of all ages to jump in and enjoy.
