Players take on the role of settlers in a fledgling fantasy village, seeking to gain influence through several "generations" of play, culminating in victory for the player whose character's descendants have accumulated the most influence in the city.

4. Profession Cards

General Gameplay

Players take turns making alterations to a shared city grid (building new businesses, upgrading existing buildings, etc.) from the City Developments deck. After a certain number of rounds, a "generation" has passed, and the city gains a new Suburb, which will have an effect on how the game proceeds. For instance, the city may become home to a tribe of Dwarves, in which case building costs will be decreased, but chances of city-endangering disasters may be increased by the Dwarves tunneling and drunken carousing.

At the end of the game, the player with the most influence (determined by a combination of their financial status, political accomplishments, and social influence within the city) wins.
