The kingdom of Sweden is weak and surrounded by enemies. The king and the nobility are entangled in strives, a war is raging with Russia, Denmark is entitled to huge war reparations and Poland claims the Swedish throne. At this critical moment, the leading men in the kingdom are turning their eyes towards the overseas trade and the rich harbors beyond for their salvation. They are turning their eyes towards the Baltic Sea.
Mare Balticum - the Board Game© is the sixth game in the Nova Suecia series. The players take on the roles of noble lines during the Swedish Empire Era. Together, they will populate the kingdom, build ships for overseas trade, build armies for overseas war and build forts for defending the gains. Instead of fighting each other, they will have to fight the enemies around the Baltic Sea, competing for the same provinces. However, the best for the kingdom is not necessarily the best for your noble line. You have to decide what benefits you most: production or trade, consolidation or expansion, war or peace. But will your objectives coincide with your opponents? Beware, if you fight internally, your external enemies will conquer the entire kingdom and put an end to both the Swedish Empire Era and the game!
