This may be a non-starter, depending on how much time I have, but I thought I'd join in for this one, since it ties in with an idea I've been kicking around for a while.

My entry will be a board game set in an alternate 16th century Italy which is even more fragmented than our world's was, with steampunk and magic. Each player starts out as either the ruler of an Italian nation or a condottierre leader, the goal is to unify Italy!
