The Mediterranean Sea is the lifeline for merchants living in the lands on its shores. In Oltre Mare, players represent competing merchant families plying their trade throughout the region.

Are you the best Merchant of Venice?
Sailing along the courses of ancient Venetians in Oltremare, the unknown lands of Barbaria. Looking for the most precious wares and the richest stocks; Exchanging wares with other merchants, loading your ship and selling at the market; But at the same time trying to escape the ever-present pirates…. Oltremare - Merchants of Venice is an engaging voyage through the Mediterranean Sea, in the golden Age of Sail.

On his or her turn the player can trade Goods (corn, wine, spices, silk, etc.) for other Goods or for money (which also double as points) with fellow players. He or she then play cards from his/her hand to perform certain actions. Actions that allow you to earn money, to draw cards, or to move your ship on the map (where you can obtain special powers). But there is also a dreadful Pirate action that you have to look out for! The cards played also represent the Goods that are loaded as cargo on your ship. The more cards of the same Good type shipped, the more money (and score) you will gain at the end of the game. The cards played will also influence the next turn, so choose your strategy well.

In order to win you have to trade wisely, choose the right cards to perform the best actions, and maximize the profit from your ship's cargo!
