CONTRADE: Peace, Love, War-  A Game of Feasting
Subterfuge

In 16th century Ferraro Italy, Household
alliances were made and broken at feasts. Note passing was the
titillating game of the court. A note delicately passed to a member
of another Contrade or household could be the building blocks of a
new empire or the destruction of an age-old
one. 
In this game, each
interaction with another table must be made using written notes
delivered by servers only. 
The servers have no
allegiance to any specific Contrade; f
or the purpose of
this game, they are mercenaries. Their services can be bought and
sold. 
Notes are the best
way to gain points. This game of intrigue will have one winning
“Contrade” (aka table).The winning table will receive a delicious
delicacy for their efforts.


Each of the main removes shall have
their own round of challenges. See below to get a head start on
winning!
