The Emperor entrusted you with the task to establish a glorious and prosperous community. To show the Emperor that his trust in you is not in vain, you send out your trusted steward into the countryside, instructing him to build residences to attract new colonists into your community.

Recruiting colonists is not enough; you have to create jobs for them as well. Therefore, you should also build buildings, where the colonists of your community can work. This will require a lot of resources; so let your steward or your colonists collect them.

With time, duties will become more complex, which is why you should educate your colonists so they are ready for the tasks at hand. Farmers will turn into citizens which in turn can become successful merchants.

Establish relations with your distant colonies by building embassies in your community; and your community will be thriving in no time...

Brain burner and time stealer
I love this game. It is a real brain burner. There is a definite investment in both time, money and the brains it takes to play this game. It's not that it's difficult to learn. Actually the game is quite easy and it's premise and simple to teach. The problem is after your three quarters of the way into the game there's so many options and different ways to get to places and resources Etc that it can be a serious analysis paralysis issue for some players. Watch a video and see if it's for you but I can only highly recommend this game.
