Plays very much like your standard resource game; Catan, Lords of Waterdeep, etc. This game has an interesting feel as you are actually playing a family with many generations. One of the goals of the game is to have your family members listed in the Village Chronicle when they pass away. Other goals include traveling the lands, moving up in the hierarchy of the church, and earning higher positions within the village council. Family members can establish careers by developing skills throughout their life. This enables you to gain resources for free, although it does cost you some life. The game comes with large drawstring bags that require players to randomly draw from every round, which is another fun factor.
