Corfù 1716 is a wargame for two players simulating the last Venetian victory against the Ottoman Empire.

After the Morea War and the Passarowitz Peace (1699), with the Venetian reconquest of the Peloponnese area thanks to the great Doge Morosini, the Ottoman Empire seeks its revenge. In 1715 the Empire is ready and with the Second Peloponnesian War, it recaptures, thanks to some fortunate events and the unskillfulness of the Venetian Generals, all the Aegean islands and the whole Peloponnese. Now the Ottoman Empire is ready to strike the Adriatic Sea, the Venetian Gulf itself. Only the island and fortress of Corfù is guarding it. It is defended by about 5000 soldiers, mostly German mercenaries, leaded by Marshal Schulenberg, the Venetian Commander in Chief. 30000 ottoman soldiers tried to storm the fortress but after 20 days of heavy combats the Ottoman Army withdrew. It would have been the last victory of the Serenissima, as it is called Venice. Antonio Vivaldi would have composed the oratory Juditha triunphans devicta Holofernis barbarie to celebrate this great victory.

In Corfù 1716 you will find 12 Venetian combat units, divided into 6 German Mercenary units, 3 Italian infantry units e 3 Ultramarine infantry and 20 Ottoman combat units, divided into 4 Janissaries units, 9 Kapikulu infantry and 7 auxiliary Serhaddkulu units representing the regiments and units employed during the siege. There are two Morale chits for a total of 34 pieces, 2 d6s, a map, 9 Special Event Cards and the rules.

The map represents the area where the battle took place; it is used to register the orders and the consistency of the two armies. The map is divided into Area, where to deploy the units e where the actions take place during the 20 turns. There are the Combat Tables, with the result of the Combat and the Morale Track, which registers the Morale level of the two armies and the Turn Table.

Hi Robert thank you for your message. Actually the game has rules and cards in English too. The names on the map are in Italian because they were in... Italian! If you need more info, do not hesitate to contact us.
Take care.

You might have wanted to mention (or make it more obvious) that it was in Italian.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
