Florenza: The Card Game – War and Religion Expansion adds two new kinds of cards to Florenza: The Card Game:

Clergy cards allow you to perform more actions in the game.
Mercenaries give you the possibility of raiding hostile cities — Lucca, Siena and Pisa — to obtain resources or money.

The expansion also allows for games with up to six players.

Comments: uses same gameplay as China but the maps on the double-sided game board introduce new rules and variants.

"Grenzstreitigkeiten" has one variant. Each player starts with one fortification in addition to his other pieces. Once per game, a player can play two matching cards, then place his fortification on a house site, then top it with a house. Whenever this house scores — whether for the region majority, for being a port city, or for being part of a sequence — the house's owner scores double the points he normally would.

The other side of the game board — "Wege der Diplomatie", or "Ways of Diplomacy", which is made for 2-4 players — also has a variant, with each player receiving a marketplace. Once per game, a player can play two matching cards, then place the marketplace on a house site, then top it with an emissary (not a house). This allows a player to compete for emissary points in a region that is otherwise full.
