I'm sure it's a masterpiece that is only extremely discounted because of some space-time anomaly.

I've heard good things from someone who's played it a few times. I picked it up in an earlier CSI sale (for a lot more money!), and based on the components and reading the rules, it looks very promising.

For whatever reason, it's been hard to get people to play it. Can't say why; IMO it's gorgeous.

"In Venetia, players compete to become the most prosperous and influential noble family in the history of the Serenissima Republic."

That description isn't exactly getting me hard.

If I can also be unhelpful, I would point out that the "Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought" list on Amazon only shows games that have been steeply discounted recently (it dropped below $20 at the beginning of June).

I'm no Batman (or am I?), but that seems to indicate that the people who bought this game got it because it was cheap, not good. Usually there would be at least a few more popular full-price games on that list if people were buying it for quality. Obviously not a definitive conclusion but it's worked for me when considering other games. At the very least I may draw out some rabidly defensive fans of the game who bought it and read the rules once but by gosh they are definitely going to play it as soon as the time is right and when that happens it will turn out to be the best game anyone has ever played. Those fans will provide the counter-point to my hackneyed line of reasoning.

It has a rating of 7. When I'm considering any game purchase with a rating 6-7 I just go through BGG comments. If I want the game, I sort by rating, high to low. If I'm trying to talk myself out of a spontaneous purchase I sort them low to high.

Ha ha ha! This is funny because it's true.

I picked this one up after watching a few videos and perusing the rule book. It seems to be very underrated, and looks great. I enjoy history, Venice, and games, so this is perfect fit for me. Thanks for the tip!

It's on Amazon Prime for $20 https://www.amazon.com/Passport-Game-Studios-PGS105-Venetia/.... If you have Prime, it costs about the same as a copy form CSI did, if you missed it.
