Dante Alighieri: Comedia - Purgatorio - Special Limited Edition

Top Hat Games proudly presents the Special Limited Edition™ of Dante Alighieri: Comedia - Purgatorio, a 3-6 players game by Gabriele Mari produced by Sir Chester Cobblepot. The game is sponsored by Viva Dante 700 thanks to the Municipality of Ravenna and the Ravenna Parkinson Association.

Aim of the game

Players need to work together to help the Viatores, Dante Alighieri and his guide Virgil, ascend Mount Purgatory in order to atone for the highest possible number of Deadly Sins (Pride, Envy, Wrath, Sloth, Avarice, Gluttony and Lust) through Encounters and by applying the four Cardinal Virtues (the shield of Fortitude, the hourglass of Temperance, the mirror of Prudence and the scales of Justice). But upon reaching Earthly Paradise, only the most virtuous player will be able to… reach the stars.


A bilingual rulebook (English and Italian), 7 double-sided cardboard Viatores tokens and 110 cards: 4 Ante-Purgatory, 3 Earthly Paradise, 7 Terraces, 7 Angels, 7 Sins, 77 Encounters, 2 Characters and 3 Poets.

Professor Cobblepot

Dante Alighieri: Comedia - Purgatorio™ couldn’t be developed without the scientific support of Dr. Callegarini, who helped Professor Cobblepot develop this game while considering the needs of people affected by Parkinson's disease, suffering from motor symptoms. The following difficulties were taken into consideration:

  • keeping the cards in hand throughout the game: that’s why each player has their own pile resting on the table.
  • drawing cards from a deck: that's why each player only has to reveal the top card of their pile.
  • throwing dice: that's why there are no dice in the game.
  • handling secret information: that's why it was avoided.

Game information has been made as visible as possible and any game action can be easily communicated to a caregiver.

Ravenna Parkinson

The Ravenna Parkinson Association is an organization founded and promoted by volunteers with the aim of helping patients and their families pursue activities and initiatives to promote their well-being. Dante Alighieri: Comedia - Purgatorio intends to offer further support aimed at reducing the disability of its members as well as inviting reflection on the issues concerning Parkinson's disease through a game, an innovative and cultural motor and language activity, in the year of the celebrations of the Supreme Poet, who is inextricably linked to our city: Ravenna.
