Czech Board Games has released a bit of information about its 2010 release – Petra Chvala's Verona. Here's a translated description of the game from the publisher:
Welcome to the town that inspired Shakespeare to write Romeo and Juliet – the most famous tragedy of all – and us to create a board game. You will find yourself in the times of the Renaissance, in which Verona has become an important center of commerce and culture, but also of corruption and intrigue. The city is so rich and powerful that both the Government of Italy and the Holy Roman Empire emerged from this site. Its ruler, Prince Escalus, is weak and influential families will fight for control of the government. Who will come to power? The fight is just beginning.
Players compete against one another through auctions and by estimating the planned implementation of intrigue, and secret and public duties. Whoever plans best and rises to an economic and military power will win the game.
Czech site Deskové Hry has published an interview (in Czech) with Verona's designer Petra Chvala, with a couple of prototype images accompanying the text.
