Italy is one of the two secondary factions in Kards - The WWII CCG.
Italy makes heavy use of the Alpine rule and is the only faction that can claim to be able to play around that rule. Alpine causes the unit being deployed to gain an attack and defense buff that becomes more powerful depending on how many Alpine units are already on the battlefield. The only other faction to possess any Alpine units is Germany, which gives them some synergy with Italy. Other Italian units are powerful without the aid of the Alpine rule, but decrease in power as the controlling player takes losses.
