Object of the Game

Be the first to score ten (10+) or more Influence Points (VPs) by producing buildings and also using your buildings to produce more VPs.

First Turn

On the first turn you may trade up to all of your coins for basic goods (wood, grain, clay, stone, and/or cotton) as long as they are available. The first player starts with three (3), second four (4), third (5) etc.

Game-play

On your turn you must choose to either Produce or Trade You have a set hand limit of seven (7) goods.

  • Produce a single basic good (wood, wheat, clay, stone, or cotton)
  • Produce a single trade good by revealing or expending one or more other goods (as shown below and in the Conversion Chart in the lower right of the game board)
  • Trade a number of goods for other goods / buildings of equal (or lesser) cost
  • Additionally, each building you own may perform its action once per turn - before or after you produce or trade

Expended Basic Goods returned to their columns for immediate reuse.

Expended Trade Goods go into the discard pile to the right of their deck.

When a column of Trade Goods is depleted, replacement cards are drawn until there are again five distinct cards, shuffling the discard pile as needed.

After your turn, it proceeds to the next player.

This repeats until the winning condition are met. A player has ten (10+) or more victory points.

Trading

Each good has a value in the upper left, which is its trade value (which is always equal to it purchase price, in the lower center-right). This value (combined with any other cards) may be used to purchase any other available card(s). Either the number of cards you discard or gain must be 1.

Producing

A good may be produced if it is in one of the five columns on the left side of the board by revealing or expending the appropriate good(s).

The piles to the right of the decks show cards that have been previously expended. These cards may be examined at any time, but may not produced.

Note that basic goods do not have a cost, so you may always produce one basic good (among those available on the bottom row). This is inefficient but sometimes necessary.

If you have multiple choices of what to produce, you can only select one per turn. However buildings allow you to perform additional conversions.

Buildings

Buildings are worth 1-3 Influence Points (VPs). Most buildings have an additional ability (a limited extra trade/consume phase), which is either one of the trades on the Conversion Chart or a trade of one or more specific goods for a given number of additional Influence Points. If the conditions on the top of the card are met you will have the option to play the card once during your turn, either before or after you Trade or Produce.

Anatomy of Card

  • Bottom center - the cost of the card
    • Each board represents one method of obtaining the card
    • If an icon includes the card outline, it is merely revealed, otherwise it is expended
    • If there are two icons, both must be paid
    • The right-most icon is the purchase price, which is paid by expending goods (or gold, on the first turn of the game)
  • Bottom right (small) - total copies of card in the deck
  • Upper left (Goods Only) -- small icon and trade-in value of card
  • Top (Buildings Only) - "Automated" Action which may be performed once a turn, if the inputs are owned and the output is available
