HOME SWEET HOME
Return to life on the road with the Agents of Venice expansion for The Voyages of Marco Polo. This expansion contains two modules that open new paths to adventure for you and your fellow players. In The City of Venice module, you venture back to Marco Polo’s hometown and its famous bazaars. This module adds an entire board filled with new markets to the game. Riches await you here, but only the most well-known traders can sell in the palazzi of the noble Venetian families. To gain access, you must first build your reputation throughout the city by establishing trading posts in lesser markets. Once you do, more lucrative opportunities will become available to you. Enter Venice, prove your worth, and work your way to the top!
During a game of The Voyages of Marco Polo, you can travel to locations across the world, establishing trading posts in cities from Europe all the way into Asia. Your many stops are bound to be full of interesting people to meet, and the Companions module allows you to bring some of your new friends along with you. Each of the nine companions provide a unique benefit to the players that recruit them, from reducing the goods needed to complete contracts to lending you money. But these companions must eventually go their own way and they only provide their benefits until the end of the current round. In addition to the two modules, Agents of Venice includes new contracts, new city cards, new goal cards, new bonuses, and five new characters. Begin a new voyage and build your fortune!
