My group likes Condottiere a lot. I am looking for more good games like it, hopefully card based, that involve bluffing and hand management (card "battles" and area control are welcomed additions) and for 3 or more players.

I know of The Boss (which I recommend) which has a similar bluffing + area control feel, but there's not that many more quality games out there that scratch the same itch.

Which game would you say is in the "same bucket" as Condottiere?

Without bluffing or area control, but nice hand management mechanics : Lords of Scotland

Otherwise strictly 2 player : Battle Line / Schotten Totten

With area control : Sun Tzu

Taj Mahal is even more intense than Condottiere.

Ivanhoe has bluffing, hand management, and card battles. It could be described as like Condottiere without the board but with more going on in the card play.

Gwent: Monsters and Scoia'tael is almost a direct rip of Condottiere with one or two more abilities and a set-up akin to Hearthstone or MtG.

Bluffing and hand management okay. Classically the most fun time will be Cosmic Encounter.

But you should also look into Kenjin.

I only played to Köning von Siam once (three years ago), but for what I remember, I think it's a little bit like Condottiere - and great with 3 players. A good game... I gave him 7.5/10 (my average rating: 6.65) and I noticed "could give a higher rating after some replay". It is on my "wishlist".

For me, Condottiere is at 8/10, with 4 or more players.

Interesting. That's the same as the recent The King is Dead I believe. I'll check it out.

Edit: The King is Dead is only $14 on Amazon...very tempting. Great recommendation, thanks.
