The Palio
The year is 1882. The event is the Palio, a spectacular horse race that has been held annually in Siena, Italy, for hundreds of years. In the Palio, ten of Siena's neighborhood organizations (called "contrade") sponsor horses in the race. In this game, you are the leader of Chiocciola ("Snail") contrada. As the leader of the contrada, it is your responsibility to make sure that your district wins the Palio.

For hundreds of years, another contrada, the Tartuca ("Turtle"), has been your district's archrival. Tartuca will stop at nothing to make sure that your district's horse loses the race. You must not let them succeed. In the world of the Palio, sportsmanship is a relative term. Bribery, sabotage, secret alliances, and intimidation of opponents are standard operating procedure. You are playing to win. Any necessary means may be employed.
