I'm watching a review of Divided Republic and I love that it's using historical pieces of art on the cards.
One thing that I am looking for is a game that takes place in the dark ages and uses dark ages style art- I'm talking about tapestries with no perspective, preferably scans of real art.
Do you know any thing like this?
Thanks.

There's Siena. I haven't played it myself so I can't say how it is as a game, but the entire board is a portion of Ambrogio Lorenzetti's Allegory of Good and Bad Government. I believe the card art all comes from that fresco as well. Like I said I don't really know how this game works, but if it's anything like the historical middle ages themed game I've played from the same designer, De Vulgari Eloquentia, then it's probably pretty solid. And it appears you can get second hand copies for fairly cheap. Best of luck.
