A BoardGame of building and resource management created by AlexChurchill.


Storyline


You are each rival contenders to rule the nation.
The people of the land have been growing adept in exploiting its natural resources, but they lack direction. Settlements are forming with dedicated industries, consuming large amounts of resources but yielding far more. Councillors and nobles are watching with interest, ready to lay their allegiance with those who guide the nation's industrialisation. With wise constructions and cunning trades, you can be the one to win the loyalty of the people!

Rules


Aim of the game

The aim of the game is to gather for yourself a council of at least four councillors, including at least one noble. At the moment a player has at least four councillor cards in front of him including at least one noble (with stars in the corners), that player wins!

Components

The game has the following pieces:


Setup


Turns

A turn has two parts: first movement, then action.

Movement

On your turn, you move up to two spaces, orthogonally or diagonally. You must move at least one space. You may not, by any means, ever end your turn on the space you started it. (The one exception to this is if you are completely unable to move at all.)
Before, during or after these two moves, you may also move onto any number of road spaces, orthogonally or diagonally.
You may not move onto or through an unimproved water space, with the one exception of when you're about to build a water building on that water space.
You may not move onto or through a space with another player's pawn on it.

Actions

Then you may take an action. Possible actions are:

Trading

Players may trade resources and/or cards amongst themselves at any time. Nobody is forced to make a trade (apart from when the Law Court or Barrister is being used).

Councillors and Nobles

You start with one Councillor, and you need four (including at least one Noble) to win.
When you build a building marked with a flag, you take one of the white (non-Noble) Councillor cards that are face-up beside the board. Then you turn up a new Councillor card from the deck and place it beside the board.
When you build a building marked with a starred flag, you take any of the Councillor cards face-up beside the board - either one of the Nobles (marked with stars) or one of the other Councillors. Then you turn up a new card from the corresponding deck, so that there are always two Councillor cards and two Noble cards beside the board.
