The rules of the game, which is particularly suitable for families and occasional players, are quickly explained. Everyone has a hand card that shows one of the nine possible types of terrain. When it is your turn, you draw another card. Then one of the two cards must be played and three settlements must be placed on the corresponding type of terrain. If possible, these must be placed adjacent to your own settlements that have already been placed. Placing them next to locations can give them special abilities that can be used from then on. There is gold (=victory points) for settlements next to castles. However, the most gold is awarded for the conditions depicted on the three Kingdom Builder cards.
The for Kickstarter announced Empire edition now comes with some extra large components. Each of the player colors has its own design for the now plastic buildings. The castles also move in the Empire edition in three dimensions. The location tiles are also made of plastic here. To support the taller buildings, the panels are about a quarter larger. In addition, there is a completely revised artwork for the box and the cards. As an added bonus, there is a promo pack of Twist cards that can add new rules to the game. These were first introduced in winterkingdom introduced.
