  • Each player starts with 2 gold and 4 cards.
  • At the start of each round, the crowned player place 0-2 faceup cards and 1 facedown card on the table.
  • Starting with the crowned player, each player chooses a character. The last player, if with 7 players, also may choose the facedown card.
  • The crowned player calls each rank, from lowest to highest. If someone has the called rank, they must reveal it and take their turn.
  • During your turn, you must first gather either 2 gold or 1 card from 2.
  • Then, you may use your character ability and may build a district from your hand, paying its cost.
  • Districts have 5 types: noble, religious, trade, military and unique. Unique districts have abilities.
  • After all characters are called, a new round is started.
  • If a city has 7 districts, it is completed: districts in it cannot be destroyed.

End of Game

  • When a player builds their 7th district, it is the last round.
  • Players score 1 point for each gold in their districts’ building costs.
  • Players also score 3 points if they have 1 of each type, 2 points for finishing their cities, and 2 points for the first to do so.
  • The player with the most points wins. If there is a tie, the tied player with the highest rank in the last round wins.

2 or 3 Players
