  • pick cards from the card rows (if you have room in your hand)

Yellow counters represent your population. They can be in one of three places:

  • on your farms, mines, urban buildings (grey-backed cards, such as philosophy), or military units (representing workers)
  • on your available population, which are available to place on your cards
  • on your "yellow bank" -- when this is empty, you can no longer increase your available population

Blue counters represent food or resources. They can be in two places:

  • on your farms or mines
  • on your "blue bank" -- when this is empty, you can no longer produce

Building or upgrading farms will help you increase your population.

Building or upgrading mines will help you build more farms, mines, urban buildings, or military.
