Settle out your lands, build your towns, develop new technology, ship goods.
This simple Die Placement games allows you to take buy tiles, to build up your Castle Estate, Castles let you play an extra turn, Animals give you compounding points, Buildings allow for extra actions, and technology give you the ability to get more points or mitigate your die rolls.
The games scales really well from two to four players keeping the game balanced really well.
The game itself is easy to teach and I constantly find myself teaching people what to do only to have them destroy me incredibly quickly. Tons of reputability with randomness of the tiles to asymmetric plots of land making your decisions very different.
