You must get the most victory points by using your workers to construct buildings.
There are 84 cards:
34 Building cards plus 8 machines
42 Workers cards
There are 40 coins:
15 Golden Coins (Value 5)
25 Silver Coins (Value 1)
Note: You will earn 1 victory point for every 10 coins at the end of the game
Playing the Game
On your turn you get to play 3 actions. If you wish you can pay 5 coins per each additional action.
1) Start Construction
2) Recruit a Worker
3) Send a Worker
4) Take Coins
Start Construction (Cost 1 action)
You can choose one building from the 5 building cards. You may repeat this action as long as you have actions during your turn. (Remember that for every 5 coins you pay to the bank you can get 1 more action) You can construct as many buildings as you wish at the same time.
Recruit a Worker (Cost 1 action)
You can choose one worker from the 5 Worker cards. You may repeat this action as long as you have actions during your turn. (Remember that for every 5 coins you pay to the bank you can get 1 more action) You can recruit as many workers as you wish at the same time.
Send a Worker to Work (has a variable action cost)
When you send a worker you must pay the number of coins in the upper right corner of the worker card. Once you send a worker to work on a building it can not move until the building is complete.
Action cost of sending a Worker
In addition to paying the coin cost on the card, the action cost of sending a worker increases for each worker you send to that same building during your turn.
First worker sent to the building this turn = 1 action (regardless of the amount of workers already working on the building)
Second worker sent to that building = 3 actions
Third worker sent to that building = 6 actions
And so on...
Finishing a Building (is not an action)
For completing the building you need to add workers until all of the requirements for the building are met or exceeded. You will earn the amount of coins shown on the building card from the bank and the amount of victory points.
Take Coins (has a variable action cost)
You can take Coins from the bank:
For 1 action you can take 1 Coin
For 2 actions you can take 3 Coins
For 3 actions you can take 6 Coins
A machine is built as a building and is worth victory points but when you build a machine it is treated as a worker that does not require payment for its work.
End of the Game
When a player gets 17 victory points from building alone (not coins) the game will end after each player finish their turn for that round. Once all of the players finish their last turn the player with the most amount of victory points will win the game, this time adding 1 more victory point for every 10 coins to the victory point received from the buildings and machines.
If there is a tie where both players have the same number of victory points, then the winner is whoever has more VPs from buildings alone (not coins).
If there is still a tie, then the winner is whoever has more coins.
If there is still a tie, the game is drawn.
