Rome, 1655 Anno Domini. An announcement shocks the whole of Christendom: Pope Innocent X has died. With lightning speed, cardinals travel to Rome, the center of religious power and intrigue. The suspense is palpable when the players take on the roles of Preferiti—the most likely candidates to ascend to the Holy See—and try to gain as many votes as possible, using bribery, beguilement, and tactical calculation. In the end, only the cardinal with all the votes money can buy as well as proven mastery on the political stage will be elected pope.

One thing is for certain: once the white smoke rises, everybody will know: "Habemus papam! We have a pope!"

Contents: 120 playing cards, 52 gems, 4 view screens, 1 card base, 1 rules booklet, 1 information sheet.
