I recently purchased this game and played it once with my son. It was a close game, and he kept destroying my ships. Games don't usually get me upset, but I definitely had an emotional reaction to this one. I loved that it got me caught up in the game. I'm looking forward to playing this one again.
I can definitely recommend Serenissima.
Now that's an endorsement! Really cool. Now I'm gonna have to get it! Thanks a lot!
