    The Anthony van Dyck

    This will get a copy of Jacob Walker's art work as a limited edition print--but no copy of the game (because sometimes you like art work and the game just isn't your cup of tea).

    This is named for the English court's favorite painter of this turbulent era.

    The Mantuan Succession

    This is specifically for *international backers* due to the current high costs of shipping from the US to the rest of the world. It will provide the art/files needed to create a print-and-play version of the game.

    The price is set at what would be the wholesale cost of the game, so that with the cost of your own components, it should still come in under the regular retail cost. Backers of the Mantuan Succession have permission to use the P-n-P files for the creation of one game for their own personal use.

    Rules provided will be in English only.

    This will *not* be sent to anyone within the United States.
