A new Doge has come to power and is throwing a masquerade ball for the nobility of Venice! Masques is a card game in which two to four players take on the roles of influential families as they plot, scheme, and outmaneuver their opponents for the favor of powerful Venetian guilds.

The Doge’s masquerade is sure to be a lively one with all of this action behind the scenes.
